    Re: what to do what to do??????

    It's cool, I like the look, but here's two things I've found. One race truck that I was looking at, the fenders looked too short and the guy had to use filler sheet metal. And the price also. I was looking at a fiberglass website the other night, it was either Hannaman or Glasswork, and they charge $800 for the parts. I'm sure a inventive soul could find all the parts around the junkyard and save money. Other than that, I know nothing.

    Re: what to do what to do??????

    The white 2wd Blazer is a 73-75 and the red p/u looks to be an 80's truck...

    All chevy trucks/K5's from 73-87(and til 91 for K5's) are similar and it would work on all of them.
