    Mikelee;

    That old truck in the photo is a '57 GMC 3/4-ton factory Napco 4WD with the original 347 Pontiac V8 and factory power steering + power brakes. I am considering restoring it later.

    October 8, 2010 Update -

    Got the bed back on; doors installed; DynaMat sound proofing in doors; new hood installed with new 24-volt Solargizer; front bumper, grill, and guard back on; new Hella E-code headlights and harness installed; new parking lights & side marker lights; new rear glass, polished & re-installed windshield glass; new rubber floor mat with insulation; new seat belts. I threw the LMC windshield gasket in the dumpster because it was 6" too big; located a GM OEM gasket at a GM dealership in Detroit. Will post more photos as I get things completed.

    Very cool!! What type of paint did you use?? Are you going to roll with the stock tires and rims?

    Used Gillispie 383 CARC substitute without hardener. Easy and repairable in the field with spray cans. Got it from Army Jeep Parts.

    I plan to install 11.00/20 NDT on custom Firestone split rims. I already accomplished this on a 1985 1-ton civilian truck, and will be using the same set up on the M1028. Here's a photo -
