"My '49 GMC is on an '88 S-15 chassis which is narrower, but the cab is nested over the frameand the only real problem was the narrow rear end + the sedan fenders. I have a plan just need time and $$. How long have you had your truck?"

GMC vs Chevy

Does anyone care that a GMC is not a chevrolet, but a Chevy is a GMC?

Hey Rich, the top is chopped 3 1/4. I basicly removed 3 1/2" space under the back window. All the windows are aprox the same in height. The corner windows are made from lexan. I found that 260 deg in the oven for about 30 min works good just watch it you dont want it to bubble. I put the lexan over the original glass for the shape. Just cut it to fit. My first 1 took about 8 hours. Ofcourse it took me a while to figure out the right temp amd time in the oven.
I also sectioned the truck 2". The front ends look bulbous when chopped. Sectioning alowed me to section the hood which make the truck more proportional in my opinion.
As for the bed cover it is made from 1" x 1" steel for the frame with a steel sheet meatal skin. I made my own rain gutters for the perimeter in side the box. It opens and closes with pneumatic rams.

thanks i am thinking of using a full size truck shortbed as the wheelbase only varies 2 inches and i could make that up in engine placement and moving the front end back a little if i had to

HEY RICH
THANKS FOR THE INFO I WAS THINKING OF THE S10 FRAME AS THE WHEELBASE IS CLOSE TO THE 46. I BOUGHT MINE WITH A NOVA FRONT END AND ITS OK BUT I WAS LOOKING TO MODERNIZE IT A BIT.
