Hello!
My name is Ruslan and I'm from Ukraine.
I want to make total conversion of my '95 2dr GMC Yukon from '09 Cadillac Escalade. I want to move frame, suspension, drivetrain, transmission, engine and interior to my Yukon (I know I'm crazy).
In this thread I will tell you about the work on this project. A little later I will post a video on YouTube with a full report on the work.
I know how to transfer the entire technical part, but I need advice on moving the interior. If you know how to do that, please, tell me how.
P.S I search on google but can't find same project. If you have seen similar projects, please share the link.
Thank you!

Cool project. Might add M Mattstrike to it as he loves doing frankenstein type cool shit.

As to the frame splice, how about adding a box around that splice that you weld in. It' be hard to add another cross-brace forward of the other one with the trans there.

He might also be able to help with harnesses/pinouts in relation to swapping over the escalade interior. That isn't my area... :D

I reinforced it from the inside, I want so that after painting the weld is not visible

I guess I'm confused then by your comment about swapping over interiors. Are you talking about fitment??

He still might be a good person to talk to. He (not sure if he still does), worked for *gasp*ford*gasp* doing interior components.
