Tom i still say do a cab swap but thats just me. Also when u do the SS Mirrors sand down the mold lines it always drove me nuts looking at it.
no offense pat, but a cab swap would be a ton of work, i don't even know how many hours. the rocker panel replacement calls for 6 hours on the books, i can straighten the floor and walk that out in a couple hours...
simply put i can have that rocker in and the floor straight in less than a day. cab swap is probably more than a day's work, then i have a whole cab to paint... dash to swap probably, interior, body mounts that should be replaced, whole nose has to come off as well to get the cab off, we're talking a ton of work.
it's just not practical. working in shops for a few years, writing estimates for a couple years, i have never done or seen a cab swap.
plus, how much would a cab cost? quick search puts it right around 500$ for a cab. the rocker was 47$ my cost, 6 hours at 46$ an hour, plus 3 hours lets say for a pull on the floor... 460$ roughly and that is installed. the cab would be 500$ without the labor! lol
pat it is my job everyday to research and figure out the cheapest and easiest way to fix crashed cars, so i think of things differently than most people...
if i paint the ss mirrors, i'll look for that body line tho mos def
