WOW!That's a heck of an introduction. Lets just cut the bottom off and start over. Where did you find a rust free donor in your part of the country?

Re: 1973 Gmc Cab Rebuild

Nice work and introduction! Welcome, from central Indiana. Is that truck a 1 ton complete with Dana 60? I used to have a GMC that same color. I think that's called emerald green. The interior in my 87 1 ton came from the green GMC. Good luck on your project!
