    November 10, 2010 Update -

    Abandoned trying to rebuild the vent windows. The replacement rubber from LMC is not the same as OEM, different profile and too big. In addition, the vertical rubber must be glued to the post, whereas the OEM rubber is mechanically bonded.

    I found complete NOS vent window assemblies and have them on the way. For those of you interested, the GM part number for the LH vent assemby is 15634471 and the RH is 15634471.

    Will post new photos as soon as I get the doors finished.

    Looking good.

    BTW, the vent window numbers you posted are the same numbers for LH and RH. I assume this is not correct? Do you have correct numbers?

    Keep up the great build!

    if you like the dynamat, try fatmat...

    I buy it by the roll. Works great. it does 'gas out' a little more than the dynamat (smells bad for about two, three days as it 'cures in place' so to speak).

    I can't wait to see the wheels mounted ON YOUR TRUCK. Love the bracket around the solargizer. Looks sweet...

    Made a mistake in Post #33 - the correct part number for the passenger side vent window assembly is 15634472. Up through the 1984 model year, GM offered all the parts to rebuild the vent window assemblies. Then starting with the 1985 model year they discontinued all the parts offerings and only offered the complete assembly. The complete assembly will fit all years of that specific body style. Both LH and RH vent window assemblies are available through GMPartsgiant.com . Kinda expensive, but if you are planning a complete truck rebuild as I am, it is the only way to go. The only thing not included in the new vent assemblies are the twist locks. Rebuild kits are available from LMC and you can re-use the original black handle.

    I am finishing the interior now and will post some photos when done.

    Something else - when I originally started this rebuild thread I had forgot to include a separate post regarding my rear disc brake conversion. Instead of re-hashing the info here, I figured it would be best to link to that oast - http://www.steelsoldiers.com/cucv/52...sc-brakes.html
