    I could just buy from any place, but I'm looking for opinions on different companies so I can spend my money wisely. A while ago I saw a post somewhere that contained a small list of places to purchase 69 to 72 parts from, but I can't find it anymore (it may have even been a different forum). I now have a 1972 C10 to fix up. Anyway, if you know of a place that is good to buy from or a place to avoid could you post up a link? Thanks.

    I've had good luck with LMC, (www.lmctruck.com), they had just about everything for my 72 /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    they'll send you a new one every quarter at least, they make good reference too, sometimes they'll have exploded views to show how things fit together, very useful. They seem to have some of the best prices too.

    I rebuilt my Blazer with parts from GMC Pauls.
    All the parts were competitively price and the quality,fit and finish were great.

    I'd recommend him. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    And he's also a cool guy and a definite classic GM truck fanatic. Judging by his profile on 67-72.com I'd say he personally owns at least 10 67-72 Chevy/GMC trucks. I'm hoping to go visit his shop sometime soon, he's only about 75 miles from me. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
