Very nice donor cab. The parts are looking good mocked up. Man don't you just love the new rocker panels, such a breeze to install. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to seeing this truck come together!!

Thank you, GM rockers fit great, I threw the aftermarket one on there just to see the difference, it fit good but not as good as the gm factory rocker.

Re: 68 project

Finally got some more shop time in today. Was able to get the rear trailing arms and axle housing sand blasted and ready to por.

I also almost have all the front suspension and brake system, ready to get this thing rolling on its own again.

Re: 68 project

About to get the bottom side finished up, all the floor patches and door pillars are welded in now drivers rocker is installed. Today I painted the whole bottom side with POR 15' now I am thinking about spraying the bottom with rhino liner to protect and help with sound barrier and vibration.

Thanks bro, I always enjoy having some company at the shop. I wasn't trying to talk you out of the mirrors you like that's just my opinion which isn't worth a whole lot
