Re: Out of the Ditch = The Rebuild Begins ('72 GMC)

Sorry it didn't work out Mike. One of these days amigo!

The bed is back on the rig and I have the wiring and hoses all buttoned up. Need a battery and to hang the exhaust and we'll be ready to light it off!

The grille from the parts truck is in fantastic shape and went in without any hiccups. Need to buy a drivers side inner fender yet. Still gotta bolt on the front and rear bumpers and fabricate a mount for the B&M Pro Stick on the floor.
