Picked this up at an auction pretty cheap, runs great (nice 350), but still needs a little work. I need to revamp the interior, fix a few non-working gagues, fix a few rust spots and repaint. Oh yeah and the first thing I need to do is get rid of the toolbox.

Anyone know where I can get reasonably priced parts for the interior. (carpet, bench, headliner, belts) I found some nicely priced parts online, but have not rebuilt a car since my 67 Camaro in the mid 80's so I have been out of the loop for quite some time.

Thanks folks, got a catalog on the way. I appreciate the advice, and I'm sure I'll be asking for more.

I got my LMC Truck catalog in the mail the other day. Hellllloooo Christmas list. Once I get the fuel sending unit replaced and she's good for inspection I'll start on the interior. The one thig that I am not happy with is trying to find a stereo to fit her. I can buy a retro one thru LMC that fits right in but it's 350$ for an am/fm cassette. I don't want to have to cut, so if someone knows where I can find one at a bit better of a price I would greatly appreciate it.

I'm also waiting to find someone to buy my 89 Mazda MX6 turbo, so I can use the space and extra $ on my truck.

Yeah, LMC does have pretty good deals on most stuff, but you gotta' watch 'em sometimes. Classic Parts also stocks 73-87 GM Truck parts and catalogs. Their radios are a little less....they range from $165-295.00 I think. Year One also carries parts and accessories. Between the three I haven't come across anything I can't find. Basically.....If they aint got it, you don't need it. BTW....Nice truck.

It's a pain to install a cd deck in our trucks. The way to do it is take a die grinder with a wheel on it and cut the necessary sized hole to fit a deck in. Then you will have to do other minor modifications. Mine fits better than any of my other vehicles.. It's not bad if you know what your doing and take your time.

When it comes to LMC - buyer beware. I had to find this out the hard way when ordering parts for my '78 Blazer - parts inscribed with those three wonderful words: MADE IN CHINA.

It won't fit like OEM....
