Our 350 chevy V8 Powered 1969 VW Beetle Hot Rod Project Sitting in my driveway

Here I have the S-10 stripped down to the chassis. With all the stuff out of the cab it was pretty easy to get it off of the chassis, although the front cab mounts fought me a little. I ended up braking a brand new socket trying to break loose one of the front mouts, so I ended up getting a 6' pry bar and ripping them out of the floor of the cab... LOL

To get the cab off of the frame I just lifted one side up and stuck a couple 2x4's under it and then lifted up the other side and let it slide to the ground. I then rolled the cab up on it side and pushed the chassis into the garage and rolled the cab back down.
