Nice start, I see the 67/68 e-brake handle inside,
but it has a 69/70 nose on it. Keeping that nose
or putting a 67/68 nose back on it? Other plans?

Looking good, did you save and reuse the original rocker? Also I have a local guy that does the wood beds. Hopefully he will be at the July Show. He does really good work. Keep up the hard work I have been workijng on mine for too many years.

Seat - If keeping truck all original
I would say keep it, if not then I'd
go with what is most comfortable.

Check out bedwoodandparts.com. I kicked around the idea of bucket seats, later model chevy seats and ended up using my original. It is at the upholsterer now. What ever you like is what you need to go with. I like the newer with integrated seat belts however they were to high for my build without the top.

Cool project. I'm all for the stock appearance except for underhood, wheels, and suspension. Bench seats in trucks are cool.
