    His email address is ericb@futureone.com. I forget what the web page is where you can directly order them from. I just got mine in the mail yesterday and they look nice, my only gripe is that the holes are a little off-center but I think I can make them work. You might want check with him that the pair you get have the holes centered correctly.

    The strips that Wayne installed will never be found anywhere. He made those out of scrap material from work. If any one from there knew he made them, he could be fired instantly. I'm sure he could help you with how he did it if you were interested in that. As far as the door handles...he has a post on the parts for sale forum that reads ALUMNIUM DOOR HANDLES (or something like that). His user name is TPI86. The handles are real nice. I ordered them for Wayne and now want a set for my truck once I get it. Hope this helps. You can also reach Wayne on here after 1am Eastern time (usually) or send him an email.

    The holes off center was done on purpose.What year is your Blazer. So far all of the ones I have made require a 3/8 inch offset from the edge. If you need a set with holes centered no problem, send me yours and I will make you a set with the holes centered. I have made several and so far have had no complaints with holes off center. I started making these several years ago for my 86, a friends 84 and 83 Blazers and they have worked just fine.
