Default New guy, ready to pick your brains for info.
I'm new to the square body trucks, my father recently purchased an 81 GMC, and I will be helping him along the way. The truck is pretty much a "done" truck, but there will be alot of small detail issues to tend to. I have had many classic vehicle throughout my years, and currently own a 55 Chevy truck.
I look forward to gettiing to know the ins and outs of these trucks, and always appreciate, help and input whenever available. Thanks

Thanks guys, my fathers 81 is pretty much done, just needing fine details and his personal touches, he just bought the truck, and will give us something to tinker with. My 55 was bought as a partiallly done project, that I have since finished, I always loved the look of older shop trucks, and decided to add my spin to this one. It does not have air bags either, it is static dropped, its can be a bit hairy at times on these Michigan roads.
