    Once I get the trans and engine out, which are currently stuck together we are cutting it in half again to fix some frame issues from the original hackery. Then put it back together a few inches shorter. Yes, shorter than it is already. Then the typical rust repair and hopefully paint

    I would go about a foot longer. I think shorter would be a mistake.
