    I've got one of those side panels where the seat belt bolts in to if you want to buy it. I only have one side and its an original OEM piece in the box. Maybe you could make a template from it for the other side.

    What catalog did you order from to get that part by the seat belt? I just looked up a local body and frame shop and stopped in. The had all the sheet metal I needed.

    I ordered it through my local dealer. I shelled about $1,500 for all the parts I ordered last summer. I put in a new floor, tailgate, and patch some spots. I just made my own panels because I changed how the floor dropped and that one piece wouldn't fit. That and the other side is no longer available through GM.
