    Re: rear side panels?

    If you're looking for fiberglass, go with Hanneman Fiberglass, if you want steel, JcWhitney sells them, along with other aftermarket truck companies. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Are you talking about the sheet steel of the body, or the interior padded panels?

    Shane74's right on. I used 1/4" marine ply -- liberally coated with Varathane -- and some vinyl from the local fabric store. Oh, and an ugly hack job with some angle aluminum to match up to the doors /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    If I did it over again, I'd use wood presevative (nasty green stuff) instead of Varathane, and might spend a little more time on the aluminum. OTOH, it worked out well, cheap, and much niver than my evil original ones which were pretty saggy and soggy /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Where are you located? Someone nearby may have what you need. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif I've got a pair of gray factory side panels, with 2 speakers per side, that have a few scratches and small tears. I've also got all the factory brackets that let you fasten them to the side of the truck. But due to the size of the side panels it would be rather expensive to package and ship them. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I made some plywood ones as well. 1/4" ply absolutely soaked in wood sealer... then covered with vinyl. Pretty easy to make and they look good too. If I had to do it again tho, I would prolly make some out of either thin steel or aluminim... and then I'd herculine or Line-X 'em for protection against the elements. I need that kinda protection... Ive had my hardtop off all winter, lol! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Make them, they are easy. Keep in mind all the things you may need them for if you wheel before you do make them.
    I have a opening in the back for spare stuff (belts etc..)
    Other things like Hi-lift, axles, speakers, amp, sub woofer etc. should be considered.
    If you need them, I can take a couple pic's.
    What do you want them for?
    1- keep the stock look
    2- looks & function (mounting gear)
    3- just want to mount speakers
    and so on........

    I've been looking for a nice set of these for two years now. No one makes them, and it seems people like to junk them and the rear seat in most k5's. I say that because almost every K5 I come across in a junkyard, the rear seat and rear interior panels are gone. Good luck, and let us know if you find a source!

    Here is mine. Inside rear panels
    I used some 3/8" plywood, cut to fit but left a little room for thin carpet. After they fit good I got some spray adhesive and attached some cheap walmart roll carpet, then stapled the back. It's really hard to tell now with all my stuff mounted. I ran the wiring to the amp and speakers 1st. I also used the finshing caps on the screws. I wish I would have made a couple 5x5 sq. cut outs behind the speakers to hide more stuff but you get the idea. I think it cost me about $50 bucks. Hope this helps.
    Sorry but the Trooper needs a good dusting.. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I'll make a deal with ya. If you'll stop at ORD on the way and pick up the K5 door that I bought from Stephen, I'll give ya the side panels. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Do you need the mounting brackets too? I can toss them and the screws in a bag. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
