    What’s the issue with the set leaning against it? Look like all are holding air. Not part of the deal?

    I see. Have the fellow check and see if you’d run into interference with anything with the 4inch back space up front, might want to pick up some cheapo wheel spacers just in case

    If 59 windshield trim will work, I know where that is. If the guy will part with it.

    $400 for the bed trim set.
    No WS trim.
    Has a good back glass for $125

    I’m checking on the WS trim from another source.

    If that includes the piece on top of the tailgate, that's an insane good deal, like the kind of a deal you should not pass up if you need it. Not bad for the rear glass either.

    I don't personally need it, but I have a bit of experience with these, and that tailgate molding regularly sells for that price, I think for a whole set that's a really good deal.

    That price is so good you want to do what you can to get it while it is available, in a couple of years it may cost a lot more, if you can find a set when you are ready for it!

    Alright my worldwide brethren, the day has come. In the morning, Big Daddy and his ol lady are headed out on a 12 hour road trip to retrieve a 1960 El Camino and a 1950 Chevy truck cab. I'm loading the truck up with everything I think I might need. I've got hand tools, floor jack, sledge hammer, 20lb slide hammer because he told me one of the drums is stuck to the pads, map gas torch, wheels and tires, lug nuts, ratchet straps, zip ties, 4 way lug wrench. Am I forgetting anything?

    Any chance of using a chain and dragging that thing up and down the street to break the drum free?
