Thanks, I know it will be alot of work, but $400 for all of it (there's a 390/C6 under there too) was a deal that could not be passed up.. with titles for cab AND chassis..
The pics will be added as often as I can sneak the wife's new camera out to the garage.

Wow, I've never seen a custom cowl vent made from a mower deck before. Yes, you do have your work cut out for you. Have fun!

Great deal however, it's going to be [email protected]#* getting a windshield to fit.

found a place in Minnesota that can custom cut me one from my template.. I guess we will see how that works out.

side and back glass will be over-simplified, unless I get really lucky finding some parts...

LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN!!

I like that louvered hood, is there any aftermarket places that sell them?

I think you gotta find an old timer with a louver punch and a press and have your hood done.... I doubt there would be such a part available in the aftermarket.
I have no idea where mine was done, I just know I counted 154 louvers.
