    So those LED tail lights, do they come with new lenses or do they work with the stockers? I like how they work, but I'd want to retain the trim piece that mine all have.

    The ones I have come with the new lenses as one unit but you can put the trim pieces on which I intend to do. With that said, there’s another company that makes these types of tails, as well, called Squared Away Customs and you can put what ever lens with them that you want. The only downside to them is it would take 6-8 weeks to get your order because he’s basically a one man show and makes them as the orders come in but he does GREAT WORK. So there is an option for those who want to run their existing lens but still upgrading to this type of light. LMC also sells sequential led tails but I’d rather support a smaller company in the US in this case :)

    Holy Brightness Batman those LED's are highly visible! This truck is coming along nicely! I've seen a couple around but the wife doesn't like them. She loves Crusty Biscuit though...lol...

    Thanks, man :handshake: I'm plugging away at her as much as I can as weather allows here in the winter. This last weekend I got door #2 fixed up with seals, rubbers, felts, regulator, window motor, exterior door handle and all that good stuff. I'm about 95% of the way there then time to attack the restore on the rear doors.

    I'm about ready to start ordering the paint i'm gonna use to paint the truck once it's warmed up. Gotta lot to buy so we'll see how quickly I get it done but that's the step that'll make the largest impact outside of getting wheels and tires. My goal is to paint this Spring but may be Summer before I get all the material bought and ready to go.

    That’s the plan. I’ve got the guns now. Currently shopping paint and materials. Plan is spring or maybe summer. I’ve always wanted to learn anyway. I did the body work on the 77 but had to pay for the paint. This time I’d like to do the whole shebang

    I've had a hell of a time finding someone around me that would do restoration work. Even the one man shows around here are doing insurance/collision repair and don't want to screw with metalwork. I guess I'll be learning some of that stuff myself too.
