    That's about all the fiberglass that's available as far as I know. Tailgates and bed parts have been redone in steel.

        I have a friend who started making molds for the doors several years ago. It's not a priority project for him; three molds done, one to go and I don't expect to see a set of inner and outer skins in the near future.[V]

                Tangible rumors can be found at York, Reedsville and other swap meets: pretty complete C/K bodys, C cab rear fenders and M series fenders.

                    There was a vendor on e-bay trying to sell a pair of C-Cab doors last week... don't think he got any bids,[B)] maybe they will be relisted.

                        Looks like another dead end, have talked too two sellers on ebay who had front fiberglass fenders from Newman Altman. But SASCO don't list them. And have had no response on an inquiry.

                        Found a company in CA. that makes rear fenders, tailgates, and a valance. Plus parts for the M models. And the company that made a complete front clip was sold and they dropped all the slow moving products. And only supply for the 53 cars.

                        Guess i'll just have to keep looking till i find some used ones.

                            I've heard about a place in Stark Fla. that makes a lot of stuff for trucks but don't know anything for sure. They shouldn't be too hard to find. Stark is not a very big town. NT
