I have always wanted to LS swap a hardbody as well, so I can't wait to see how it turns out. Life does get in the way from time to time but I do hope you manage to see it to completion. Subscribed!

Looking good. FYI, since you are using the truck accessory set up, if you need more room for the radiator, the corvette setup is 1-9/16" closer to the block.

Dillon's radiator can build you a divorced filler neck aluminum radiator with the outlets where you need them. I opened my core support and put it inside the support. I run a first gen small block with vortec truck accessories. I could reinstall the condenser if I used the Corvette set up . Since the ls is shorter than a sbc, you should be able to get the ac working with no problem...
