I was looking for the aluminum pan just for looks ,I Do not want chrome all I have used Rusted and leaked around pan seal,unless you ground chrome off sealing lip Then prone to rust,

So it may end up in the plan's...
So watch where you bounce that ball...

I'm thinking by the time this C-Cab is done there will be many things on it that you just can't buy...ANYWHERE'S...
