Default 57 truck

Ok so I am getting to the next phase of redoing a 57 step side. I need front fenders, hood, rear fenders and few other sheet metal parts. The struggle I have is the shipping costs for these items. I am in Michigan and am fine with picking them up personally in the mid west area. I know there is a lot of west cost venders but I am looking for mid west vender to avoid the shipping costs. I thought I had seen a vender in the Indiana or ILL area but can't find it.

Any help is appreciated.

Default frame

Those places are both perfect for sheet metal. Thank you.

Now the age old question. FRAME/CHASSIS
they all seem to be 15 k and up for a roller. ouch.

My has been hacked up from someone trying to graph it.

Anyone have a non hacked up one I could get and put a IFS in?

Just a suggestion but give www.67-72chevytrucks.com a look. Many, many fine people on there with a LOT of knowledge and many with parts both new and used. I've been a member there for almost 19 years and received a LOT of help when I was restoring my 1971 Chevrolet 4x4.

Default Steering column

I've been trying look at photos of other peoples trucks to see what steering columns they are using but haven't really had any luck in figuring that out. I know there are some aftermarket out there but they were around 1,000 each and thats a big hit on a budget. I know there are some in Jegs that are around 260 but they have all the blinker and ignition on them which I would rather not have. I would like to keep the strap on style blinker mechanism and the ignition in the dash.
