    I own a 51 Gmc , can any one tell me if there are disc brake rotors that will fit the stock king pins . I would like to keep as much of the orig. equip if possible. I have a 78 Camaro frt. clip and a 91 S-10 as donors if need be, but I am wanting to avoid these mods if I can. any info is appreciated,thnx.

    Unless I'm mistaken, that is a one-piece window kit.

    Define "cut to shit". Like, the inner fenders were clearanced for the engine? Or like it's just a cab on a tube frame pretending to be a '32 Ford?

    Here's mine: I've taken the grill apart and will go with chrome bars and repaint the rest and will change to 16" rims/tires. I have the vent windows and door glass in though. My take on an early 50's mild custom (lots of subtle changes). This was just after I finished it in 2006 (has it been that long).

  27. That's sweet...subtle change is the way to go, keeps that OG look with your own personal touch.

    Nice ride ...... I'd be leaving the white grille ..... it set off against the baby blue real well.
