    Does anybody have a good (or new) set of those plastic Silverado emblems that fit on the side of the shell of 89-91 K5 Blazers and Subs. I have tried every aftermarket catalog and all of the specialty shops I could find and no one has them not even my local dealer(they have a replacemen, but it looks looks really bad).

    I found mine at the local junkyard off a late model Chevrolet Silverado pickup.. about 91-95.. they look great on my fiberglass shell if I might add...
    Might want to check the local boneyards..

    Thanks
    I will try the bone yards after Christmas. One more question, how did you remove them from the other truck and how did you re-attached them to your truck.

    I removed them with a very small gasket scraper.. I just slipped it underneath.. and gently pryed on all 4 corners til it started to come loose.. They were held on with double sided tape..
    I used 3M adhesive to attach them to my fiberglass shell..
    Those sucker's are on there...
    Just clean up the backs of the emblems prior to adding adhesive.. and clean the area with rubbing alcohol where you're going to attach them.

    Well I got to the bone yard and got the emblems off of a 89-91 Suburban. They are in perfect shape. Got some doublesided tape and 3M glue and mounted them on my Blazer today today. Man do they look good.

    Thanks Again
