    What type of file is it? I’d really like to see that before I try getting into mine. You ca try to e-mail it to me and maybe I try my hand at posting it on the web.

    Deal, but it might take me a couple days .I think I have to load it again, and it's a BIG file so let me work on it. It would be cool for everyone to see./forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I'm in the middle of the same project. I took a donor tailgate apart and sandblasted the parts and I'm in the process of rebuilding the new shell. Here are a few pictures:

    The newly refurbished parts vs. the old, rusted window sash:

    A closeup o the donor tailgate:

    Here are some of the parts you may need:

    * 2 Glass Channels (LMC P/N 38-6682,3, $39.95 ea.)
    * 2 Window Glass Cams (LMC P/N 38-6681, $10.95 ea.)
    * 1 Window Sash (LMC P/N 38-6680, $39.95)
    * 2 Rollers with rivets (LMC P/N 30-0498, $4.95 each)

    All these items are on Page 25 with a picture of the parts. You can order a free LMC catalog at:

    As you can see it may be cheaper to get a donor tailgate like I did. I was able to clean up and use most of the parts from a semi-rusted tailgate. My original tailgate was TOAST inside and out. I have a new shell now and I'll post pictures as soon as it is back together.

    Good luck!

    Scott.
