    Like the title says, the thing I really need are the two 8 foot bedsides for the box, ones around here are usually either heavily dented or rotted away behind the fenders. If there was a nice complete bed I'd take that too, wood floor condition doesnt matter as I'd redo it anyways. So if anyone knows of any that could somehow make it up to the northeast, delivery, shipping, whatever, I'd be interested long as the price didnt kill me.

    Wes, ThatK30Guy, out in Kansas is parting out a short stepside bed with minimal rust. Might want to PM him.

    I ended up buying a new front panel/wiring harness from Athey's Classis Trucks in Northern VA. Got my lights/tailgate/bumper from board members at www.67-72chevytrucks.com Bought the bed strips from Classic Heartbeat. Good Luck.

    Exactly what I'm doing. I got the bedsides yesterday, supposed to pick it up when they get it off the truck between now and friday. Now I'm lookin at fenders, better tailgate and headboard, the fun part which is alot easier to find. Also contemplating moving to a fuel cell located in the front of the bed using a 2nd headboard cut down and welded in to seperate it from the rest of the bed....
