    I need the rear pannel trim pease that hold the pannel in and I would like the pannels if close buy to use as a pattern to make new ones for my blazzer. I could also use a A/C system for the truck.
    Thanks Earl

    Earl,

    You can make new patterns faster and easier than by waiting for someone else's help! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Just get some scraps of cardboard, masking tape and a sharp utility knife. Cut the cardboard to fit into the areas....do it in maybe 3 parts (the initial UP angled area, the straight over the hump area, and the down angled area.) Once you get each section fitting well.....just tape them together and then you have a template that you can trace onto 1/8" masonite or whatever you want.

    There might be a small amount of additional fitting required if your template isn't perfect, but once you get the first side done, you should have a VERY accurate template to trace for the 2nd one!!! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif


    I'll bet you could do the whole project in a couple of hours..... I did. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    That was my plan B but I would still like to find a set of the chrome moldings for the top of them.
