Do you have a 1954 Chevrolet Truck Shop Manual?
(door ventilator assembly)

If you do, what instructions/etc has you stumped?

We have a sub-Forum in the Paint and Body Forum called Doors. Your question should be posted there. This particular forum is mostly for build threads and/or Blogs not for answering questions. You will get lots of help there.

I'm glad I found this forum. I have alot of work ahead of me. I'm going to need alot of information to accomplish the work. Right now I'm recovering from passing out and falling, breaking my wrist and re breaking my ankle.
I have a 54 chevy 4400 flatbed, 54 chevy 3805 panel, and a 54 gmc 350 coe and a 51 gmc suburban.
So far there is so much info here its going to take some time to wade through it
