What you looking for Len? Have you tried Ebay? sometimes the hotrod shops have pages on Ebay itself. Also maybe try Jegs and Summit Racing.

Leonard, if you are going to order a big shipment and bulky stuff I would only use Ash and he would probably advise you to give him a Product/parts code list from Ecklers and one of their Chevy sub sites like chevy truck..?? . They are cheap vs the rest in my experiences. you can choose to import yourself or via Ash from there.

I got my big parts shipment via him and he sent it via sea consolidated with a few cars inc Richards T bird and I honestly can say I scored big time going this route. If you not in a hurry its the way to go and when I am ready for my next big sea not in a hurry parts shipment needs I will be doing it this way again.

I cannot bring parts in any cheaper myself and in my line of clothing import business I have good relations with freight forwarders so already I am getting good shipping prices.

Some updated photos of truck build, most of my parts have arrived, some fitted. Still hope to have her running this year, but want to assemble car, drive it then pull apart and paint.
