Welcome to the 'Bolt 48Gasser!
Your project will have a following for those that like to call The HiPo Shop
Can I offer a suggestion for when you do get into your project? If you don't intend on keeping any of the 1 Ton drive train or other 1 Ton specific parts, hope you would offer them up to fellow Bolters using our very own Swap Meet
forums section. We have a Truck Parts For Sale
forum and even a Freebies
forum if you're feeling extra generous and wanting your left overs to find good homes.
Some 1 Ton parts can be somewhat hard to find and I am sure we could help find them new homes if that is your desire.
Oh yeah, don't forget to go say hello in the Midwest Bolters Association
forum. Lost of 'Bolters residing not far from your noted home base.
Looking forward to more conversations and pictures as you can share.
