Thank you Charlie that's just what I needed to know, I bought this truck new 25 years ago and the truck is well worth restoring. mechanically its a-one, a drivers door and new box is about all the body work it needs, the rest should rub and paint..thanks...Mike in Exeter Ontario

If you have problems locating a door etc, The lower bottom inner and outer are available from:

Cross Canada Autobody Supply
5 Tilbury Court
Brampton, ON L6T 3T4

(905) 454-0209

This is what I did on a '79 that I have, 'cause it is just a daily driver. Their stuff comes from Taiwan, the quality and fit is pretty good for what they cost. Don't have a website that I could find.
