    Welcome to the site!

    As far as bracing, check the net for convertable restorations. When I see pictures, they usually weld a brace across the box, behind the seats; then across the door jambs, then criss-cross across the seat area. Does that make sense? You don't want the body to flex - at all - when you remove it. Judging by the floors, that things gonna fold in half when you pick it up. But hey, you're farther ahead than I ever got with my '75!

    For your front end, there may be more arch in the front frame on the 4x4, but I don't remember for sure. And, I think I read somewhere that the El Camino of the era swapped in the brakes... but no gaurantee.

    Once you get your price list together for parts - take a minute, gets some water, catch your breath, then check out US Body for a fiberglas tub, or Wyoming Classic Cars (.com) for an old metal body.

    Good luck, and keep the pictures coming!
