Re: Rebuilding my 1977 plow truck

After looking for the u shaped trim piece for the tail gate band and not having any luck finding it in my shop, I ended up buying a Chevrolet tailgate band and stealing the piece out of it. Swap meets are great for this kind of things, I had been looking on ebay and every one of the dinged up pieces of crap were $80 and $20 shipping at min. I bought this one for $20 took it apart, used some reducer and cleaned the black paint off. Reassembled using the new u piece, the band I had, gmc emblem off the 79 and used the back piece from the swap meet one because it was better. I know it isn't perfect but it is a plow truck.
