Worked on the drivers vent window this week, got it all restored with some fresh paint and rubber.

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Found a 60/40 bench seat this weekend. It will work perfect for the front seat. Will be able to get to the back seat with one lever. Pulled it out of a 94 Chevy with the extended cab. Got it all cleaned up, it is in great shape. I will be mocking it up next weekend.

That is an awesome site! I wasn't sure of the dimensions for the cut in edges for the floor boards, and that site lays it out prefect. Would be nice to be able to use some of the products but they are all set up for short and long bed applications. I measured the boards in my panel and they are 10 1/2' long. I will likely have to make my own boards.

Drivers seat is in! The steering wheel is not done yet, still needs a few coats of paint. These seats fit in the panel perfectly, no modifications required. Now onto the passengers side

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Passenger seat is mounted. Would have been better if I mounted them more forward. O well, just a bit tight for those getting into the back

Got the drivers side vent window in. The extra time spent paid off, turned out nicer then the passengers side.

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Still on the road for my two week hunting trip. Got three deer between my brother in law and I. The best part was I spotted a 63 suburban and a 65 suburban parked out in this guys farm yard. lucky for me the guy was there, as I was passing through, he set me up with a bunch of critical parts that I am missing/ or that are heavily damaged. Rear crossmember and sil plate with barn door stricker plates, fuel door, driver side tail light housing, all the cover plates for the barn doors, all the rear barn door latches and a mint crome bumper with all the brackets. Soo pumped. Currently it's all jammed in the back of my 77' security camper with three deer and all our camping and hunting gear.... So pictures to come hahaha

Thanks! I'm excited things keep moving along. Saskatchewan has some beauty Whitetails. Would be a cool hunt. I had the opportunity to participate in a duck and goose hunt in Manitoba and it was a blast!!

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

And the drivers side tail light lens and housing. Got the lot for $160. Got some parts and some new tools. A 1500lb engine stand for the Cummins, a new 12.5v grinder, some butt weld clamps, spot weld cutters and some sand blasting media.

Re: 1963 GMC C30 panel truck

Got out to the shop last night. Spent some time working on the rear sil and cross member. Welded the ends of the cross member back on, filled the hole for the trailer plug and hammered out the dents. Then I started to sand blast the rough looking areas around the cross member. Noticed some pin holes and areas I will have to patch up.
