    Hello! New to the forum. Sorry if this is a topic been beat to death. I have a 73 c20. Body has mostly good sheet metal on it. However, it does need some metal on the beds and a little on the cab. What’s the best site for replacement metal? Thanks in advance!

    Your local wrecker is the best site.

    If not there, you can try LMC, fixmyrust, carid, many more. Just plug Chevy repair panels into google and you'll see many options.

    I know there are a lot of restoration sites out there. I was wondering which ones had the best fit and durability. I’ll check out LMC. Any other good sites with quality metal? Thanks in advance!

    I like Auto Metal Direct, if I can't find good stuff from a Junk Yard.

    Also try Craigslist. Squarebody parts pop up on there frequently.
