OH MAN!!
I am so very sorry. I can't even imagine how you feel. I have followed your build for years and borrowed many, many ideas.
With any other kind of car (Camaro, Nova, Chevelle) swapping stuff over is easy....but these stinkin' cars take so much fabrication....ugh!!!
I'm really sorry.
Hang in there!
