You might want to try posting this question over at the H.A.M.B. website. Those guys do a lot of hotrod-type modifications that don't happen on this site very often. Be aware they're a raucous bunch- - - -bring a thick skin!

From the experience gained from 50+ years of building race cars and various other rigs with major sheet metal modifications, let me advise you to bring money- - - -lots of it!

Schwartz, send me an emai or private message with your phone number and we could get together on the phone. It is my 57lcf that 66rollback posted. I think you might have it easier than I because of the shape of the doors on the AD trucks. I did see a build thread of somone doing an ad crew cab. I will see if i can remember where I saw it and post a link. I do hang out over on the hamb website and there is a lot of good info on there. There is a cab over group on there.

Saw this on the swap meet page. You might want to contact the seller. Take a look at the last picture he has posted it's an AD COE already stretched.
