yeah, keep checking SF Bay area craigslist, the guy i picked my truck up from lives in Petaluma, he has a couple of random Task Force parts including what you are looking for, word of warning though, when you talk to him on the phone he sounds like a tweaker and is incredibly hard to get OFF the phone with, then when you see him he is just a really hyper stoner who has smoked too much of his "medicine" lol, but he has parts and needs cash. I have his email adress at home somewhere, i'll try to have my wife look for it.



****Edit****

I found another post of his, doesnt have the grill listed but he may still have it, email him, he has a bit of stuff, some of it is crap some of it is good, the grill looked to be in good condition i think, i'll pm you the link

they had put the wrong type of fuel line inside the tank and it disintegrated after 3 mths
write them direct customerservice@nolimit.net

thanks for the info, anyone else have any experience with these? what else is needed for this kit, the fuel lines and sender? anyone have any experience with the ebay tanks?

Good advice but I can't figure out how to get my stock hinges out. What the secret the heads are round with no slots and the bolts are in a place that no wrench is getting to?

Nice ride Richard. My name is Travis an I'm building a 57 step side. I put it on a 59 shortbed frame. So far got the TCI front IFS under it an the TCI rear leaf lowering kit too. Bought CPP power brake kit that mounts in the stock location under the floor. I've got a 355 with a Holley Systemax waiting to be put it an a 700r4. A rearend from a 77 Nova takes the place of the front load car rearend someone else had already swapped in. Looking forward to any info you or anybody else can offer me on here.

Ok, so I was concerned that my truck may just blend in with all the other cars on the road today. I decided to guarantee it's uniqueness by ordering a personalized plate. So now if you see a faded green, lowered 57 GMC on the road, you won’t have to wonder if it is me.

I think its a refrence back to when you had a ticket book at Disney. They had A thru E tickets for the rides. A's were lame, E's were thrill rides.

Cal1320 is correct, I meant to imply e-ticket. Prior to 1982 Disneyland issued A through E ticket books.
A-tickets gained admittance to the kiddie rides. E-tickets were always the coolest rides.
