Default rebuilding the old ss/t

I bought a wrecked 97 ss/t from a close friend needs a new cab. After buying the truck I thought about parting it out and using the engine in my dakota.

However after a few weeks of thinking and searching I found a new cab

will post some pics of before and after with it getting wrecked. It used to be nice lol

Does my heart good to see a truck come back from the dead. Being a cheap bastid, hate to see good stuff get crushed. Lot of good trucks went to "Cash for Clunkers" pissed me off!

Looks like your making progress. Don't let the amount of work discourage you. It will make it worth it in the end to say I did that.

I made some progress in the past couple of days, cab is almost ready to come off

I had some questions, is this k/n tag on anyone else's truck?
And the ecm says authorized software update, any ideas?
