Front Fender Mounts

Can somebody shoot me a picture or describe the way the front end group mounts on to the stock frame? I'm putting my old cab('57) on an S-10 frame and I don't have the old stock mounts or frame to reference. I could just make something up but my front end group is pretty much rusted out and I'm planning on replacing it eventually with a sound one I've located. I want to be able to make the transfer using the stock hardware on the new front end group but it is located about 150 miles from here, so I cant look at it! I seem to remember the mount being a rubber pad but I don't remember how thick it was.

Mine involves two big springs with a bolt through them. That's the only thing up front. Could be just the f350 like this though. I could get a photo this weekend.

Boy, it's been a long time since I took the body off the original frame but I seem to remember just a bolt going through a thick piece of square rubber. It's possible that that wasn't original either! I seem to remember the brackets serving as radiator mounts also. I took the body off the frame almost 20 years ago.

The radiator support bolts to the frame. Everything else kind hangs off it. There may be other pictures in my gallery that help.

Thanks a bunch, those pics help a lot. Are the radiator mounts and radiator stock on your truck? All that metal is missing on my front end group, but I'm sure it's still intact on the good one I'm going to aquire. Nice detail work by the way. Mine isn't going to be near that nice. Just rattin' it together for now!
