OK, I got the GMC Maintenance Manuals - X-6223, X-6323 & X-6423 yesterday. Are there others that would be good to have on hand during this journey?

A.P. this one is not GMC specific and is for Chevys is called Factory Assembly Manual, but it will tell you how to assemble the truck on the parts that are the same on the GMC, It's not laid out in any particular order with no index so you have to look for what applies and make your own index. Other than that it was helpful when I forgot how something was assembled plus they are not to costly at least the last time I looked at them. It was helpful with things like the wipers and where the bolts go in the sheet metal and lots of other items, It's not a must have item if you take notes on how things are assembled and have a good memory. But if you do things like me I tend to forget where and how stuff goes...Vernski

It's amazing what you don't see the first one or two times you look at something. When I first looked at this truck, I thought the hood was good. I was glad because I hear they are hard to find. However, taking another look while trying to put a game plan in place I noticed the following...

I assume, being on the corner, this will drive the need for a hood replacement? ...or is there a feasible way to repair it?

I've seen kids throw them away for less than that, but I've seen guys patch much bigger than that. If it was me I'd try to clean all the rust off then weld up the holes. A flapdisk and a wire wheel (15.00 or so for both) would clean them up pretty good. WDShaffer is the paint and body guy to go to for tips there. Do you know how to weld any?

Sadly no, even though my dad is a welder, I never learned from him as a kid...better late than never though right!?! Of course we live 10 hours apart now. I won't see the folks again until May. However, he may have some equipment he can let go of.

Got some wire wheels I used to when restoring my grandfather's Shopsmith last fall. May get to use that to rip some wood for the bed...maybe.

Thanks for the props, Fetch...

Those are the most common type of rusty part: joints where dirt & water collect. Look also at your floorboards where the cab mounts are (front specifically is often bad rusty).

You can fix anything if you are willing to, or if you have no option. It all depends upon what you want to gain from the project. My '61 is a basket case I intend to have fun with -after 10 years of waiting, the stars are aligning again

If you can't get to the back side of the rust, you gotta remove material until it is solid metal. A doner bow-tie hood could give the patch panels necessary too.

Thanks. There is an old 64 Chevy near here that has sat on Craigslist for sometime. Might try to see if he can part with the hood for that use. Thanks. Of course the hood may not be in as good as shape as the teeny tiny picture makes it appear in the CL ad.
