    well not best pics canera lends kinda broke, but got ceiling done and made my own headliner from a travelall liner over the front seats. I had a horrible time lining the roof with wood something completely off on passenger side, think it was built out of square??? anyways cane out pretty good though, it's getting closer won't be long she will be on the road

    Going just fine, I have put about 300 miles on it. I drove I a solid 2 weeks to work, 40 miles round trip..after shoveling coal all day at work not having a/c was no issue with the crank out windshield and cowl louver plenty of air flow. Not much left to do other than drive it!!!!!!!! I have dove it several random places, really some glass seals and door glass is about the only thing I am going to do on it...I really enjoy driving it...it crews 65/70 pretty good, have to keep in mind the low gear ratio. But running, braking etc all good! I plan driving it a lot more this year

    I missed this earlier, so I'm just now commenting. The K/KB panel and the KB5 and up have more in common with the previous D series than the KB1-3. Look at your doors, round lower corners, same as D series. A D-series headliner may be closer, although I think the panel is significantly different than the pickups.
