    Hi everyone, I just purchased my first blazer a month ago and I love it. its a 99.5 % factory stock 86 K5. my question is does anyone know where I can get good replacement interior parts? I need seat covers, not the junky partsstore version,but something like the original material. I talked to a local upholstery shop and they quoted me $250.00 per seat, WOW !!!, is this the going rate? I'm going to replace the carpet and headliner also.
    by the way, a friend owns an 87 k5 and he is needing a new dash pad. he doesnt want a cover, he wants a new complete dash pad. where could he find one of these?
    thanks guys.

    Try some of these places for replacement parts.. and upholstery kits..
    I highly recommend Classic industries.. The catalog is very worth the $5.00
    Everything you can possibly imagine .. they have it for your Blazer.
    www.classicindustries.com


    I haven't failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work. www.rocko.rockcrawler.com

    For the new dash, get the GM part number from your dealer and then buy it from American trim and Upholstery Supply. They have a great website. Their prices are competitive. And they are very knowledgeable. They are setting me up with new carpet and headliner stuff. They sent me some samples to make sure it would go with my seats.

    Is it a bad thing when my reality check bounces?

    Check with other upholstry shops, because $250 each is WAY to high, at worst case you should pay that much for both, still a little high. For carpet go straight to the manufactorer and use ACC or ACS, these two companies make the majority of molded auto carpet, why buy their kit from LMC when you can buy it direct and save $$. I will check w/ my uncle on a more exact price to recover the seats, so you can bicker(sp?) for a better price.

    Good lord. The rod up that man's butt must have a rod up it's butt.

    <font color=black>First, shop around as much as you can, because you can find good deals, and you can also get royally shafted. It also depends on whether your willing to buy used. You may have to color interior parts to match, but even if you buy new, it would be hard for all shades to match. I'm currently redoing my interior (slowly) so I've been looking for sources. Don't forget ebay. I just picked up all the interior molding to install a headliner for $80. New, it would have been over $300. And, of course, don't forget to patronize your neiborhood junkyard.

    Here are a couple of places to check:

    <font color=white>Currently on ebay, if you want a complete red interior:<font color=white>

    <font color=white>New:</font color=white>

    There's a hundred other places, but that's a start.
