Thanks, Chris, but I was looking for roof panels, not door panels.

Just found this thread, nice truck.

I have a 62 K10 that I put power brakes in, first I found an original booster then later I put on one with a split system from a 71 3/4 ton, bolted right up. I have an automatic so the clutch master was not a problem with the later booster but I am pretty sure that the mechanical clutch linkage from later trucks will bolt right in with the correct selection of parts. That way you can keep your manual trans if you want to and still use a later booster. I put on front discs from the later truck at the same time, 1/2 ton, not 3/4.

Hope things are going well.

Thanks, that's good to know that a later model brake booster will bolt right up, that would save me a lot of money. I'll research the mechanical linkage swap possibilities. Looks like I'll be sticking with drums all the way around as I don't see any kits for a 3/4 ton. I just got my other project out of the way so I'm gonna start in on some body work when I get home.
