    I tryed not to steal it i really did I even started a help me pick a color tread! :lol: If i didnt find the 64 i got now i was looking for th 67 chevy just because of the hood and i always liked the grills in them.

    Anyway looks like to me you got a long way to go but if you do a little at a time looks like it can be a great truck and some fun along the way! It took me 6 years to get mine like it is now!And 3 trucks! :lol:

    Besides the drivetrain, I know I'm going to have to dump some $$ on a grille. I don't even have one to work with.

    I think I am going to yank the engine out and get it home so I can start repairing all of the rust.

    Well i can keep an eye out for stuff. Lmc truck and classic parts are to of the places i bought most if not all the parts i needed at. I had to put inner and outer rockers on and a split the fenders and put back halfs on each one.

    I know there are a few places to order rockers and cab corners etc. I used LMC on my 71 I did a long time ago. I guess they are still the go-to place price and quality wise?

    What i did was check prices at both places and see who was cheeper and see what shipping was if i order it all. Both places are in ks and they are like less then 50 miles from each other.:lol: They get thier part from the same places! :lol: You would be surprised what the price differance is on some of the parts.
