You must have seen the truck by now, 36 buff cap, right at the end on the corner of tolland stage rd.  Forest green c-10.  Its there mon-thurs.

The GMC gate? The guy was asking $175, I gave him $100. Got it at the swap meet

April. The next closest one is at the Big E in January. That one is pretty lame but if you have nothing to do sometimes it's worthwhile

I might go. I seem to have misplaced all of the fasteners I picked up at the Stafford Swap meet. May need to go to pick up some more junk

I guess it's been a while since I posted any pics. I spent a lot of time getting the cab just right, nice body lines, dialing in the cab corners, rockers, attention to detail etc. Pulled it out of the garage yesterday and washed it, cleaned up the disaster area (garage) Planning on putting the door latches in today. I had them soaking in chem dip which I discovered makes them like brand new.

Rich
It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!

Looks great as usual.
What are you running for tires & rims now that we can't get 16.5" tires for the slotted rims?
