Hey Everyone! I'm new here and also to the van scene in general! My dad is an old van guy who is now getting his dream of once again owning a Chevy Shorty Van, he's headed up to get the 1978 Chevy Shorty Van 305/3spd Auto in two weeks and i'm just trying to find some parts we're looking for to get this van how he wants it! I figured i'd make a post to see if anyone had any leads on the following items:

Chrome rear window trim (Driver-side)
Chevy Bow tie grille emblem
Billet style grille (preferably round tube)
Black ashtray door
Black passenger side sun visor
Passenger Side Chevy Van 10 emblem
Outer Lower patch panel for sliding door on passenger side(not the rocker)
Outer Lower patch panel rear driver-side door

Thanks Everyone!
