Body Damage...Salvage Yard??

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Feb 12, 2001.

    Hello all, I messed up the passengers side front quarter panel in a very dumb and avoidable collision with a non-moving loading dock post. I also bent the Radiator Support, so the right headlights are pointing towards the ground, should I just go to a junk yard to get this support piece and fender or order them from LMC? I was thinking that the Radiator support could be taken off any early 1980ish truck or blazer right? Or are they specific to Blazers? Fenders...same question.

    I have a 1984 K5

    My radiator support came off of a 84 K30, and went in with no problem. I picked it up at the boneyard for 20 bucks.
     
  2. Wow, that's a lot better than the $129 that LMC wants...What is the K30?

    Just go to the bone yard and get the parts they will be cheap
    plus they are factory parts not the aftermarket B.S.Plus original parts will fit like a glove.

    I would definitely go w/a junkyard. As long as the parts have no rust, you can always give them the infamous "spray-can rebuild". Once you paint those radiator supports, they look brand new.
