Default 36 Ford truck on Ranger

Hello. I'm going to start a thread on setting a '36 Ford PU on a Ranger frame, I think. The computer is scaring me more than the build. Anyhow, I aquired an extended cab 1987 Ranger pick up and striped it of its cab, box, motor and transmission. From reading Ford books I found the '36 wheel base and measured the Ranger wheel base. Whoa, 14 inches too long. It turns out that a regular cab, regular box Ranger frame works like a charm, too late smart, me. I left a tab sticking out the front on the back part of the frame and one facing back out of the front part. I figured out that if I cut the chunk out of the frame near the back of the cab, that the front frame would just slide inside the back part and the two tabs that I left would be good fishplating.
I put new tin all of the way around the bottom of the cab and doors. Both doors came off of a wrecked panel truck in B.C. The rest of the truck had been thrown away and the doors should have been too. I got them a little cheaper.
