How Much Are You Going To Spend

Trees, can't tell from the picture what mfgr. your truck is, if a Chevy do you have a good source for door latches and window regulators. I need one of each for a 39 chevy truck.

New rule, give a brief description of what your dollars are to be spent on/

Hey Matts37chevy, didn't we talk about a source for 30's chevy window regulartors and door latches one time? I found a supplier once and now I can't locate one.

This is the Year I buy a bunch of high dollar stuff for my project (engine, trans, a/c, steering, etc.). I have already spent about $2500.00 so far (Steering, Vintage Air a/c, misc.), and I just got my new, polished AFR Heads ordered last week ($3600.00). I have decided to go with a new Hilborn set-up ($85-9000.00). All in all, I expect to spend about $30-35000.00 this Year-

I have spent about $10,000.00 so far.If my body lets me get enough work done I will probably spend another $4000.00 for body parts and paint and interior and brakes. My biggest hold up is pain.But I keep making progress slowly.I cranked up my 383 that I built for it,and it sounds great.

Garrell, That is a 36 Improved Ford PU (and Coupe). I have never built a 30s Chevy so can't help with source of parts.

About as specific as I can get on project completion is new tires, a set of wheels, final paint (I have enough body work and primer supplies), labor to install rear glass and windshield, new bumper bolts all the way around, Vintage air unit, new radiator and condenser, 2 2700 CFM fans, all new front suspension parts (rod ends, Idlers, ball joints front shocks and about 18 ft of radiator hose. Have not priced anything yet so it is still "what ever it takes".
