    Same basic bodystyle......everything should be the same.
    There is a site that goes through the swap details of a 500 into a early 80's limo. The bodies are a little different (not sure about frames) but you may be able to use some of the info.

    No problem.
    Actually, I need to go back and read it. I read it once before but forgot most of it.
