Does anyone out there have a source for replacement sheet metal. I have a '81 J-10 and a '72 J-2000. Please forward address and phone number of the company if you have a good source.....Thanks

Rabucks carries some tin for FSJ's. I think their web site is www.raybucks.com
If that's not it dig around on this web site under sources/body or some such. The address is there somewhere...

Thanks Joe,
I'm aware of Raybucks,seemed to me if its truck specific(i.e.bed panels)they are very limited. I was hoping someone else had a deeper selection. Man,finding some of the simplest things for the "big guys" is like a full figured gal shopping in the petite section.

Yeah Ray, bed parts are tough to find. I'm lucky and don't live in the rust belt so I haven't really had a need to dig into it but I'm not aware of any after market bed panels.
On the full figured thing...if ya do find one in the skimpy section...ask her if she's got an "older" sister

Believe it or not, but JC Whitney has full side panels for the long box pickup. I bought some, but haven't gotten around to putting them on yet.

A friend of mine always insisted that the JC Whitney body panels were ok, but he also insisted on stripping them and priming them himself rather than leaving the coating on them that came with em.. Thats all I know, I am very bodywork illiterate.. allthough that guy and others have taught me theyre tricks of the trade I have had little occasion to utilize them. Anyone have input on this one??
