    Does anyone know of a company or person that sells interior rear side panels as an aftermarket product. Mine are warped and tweeked from moisture. I know you can make your own but I'm trying to avoid that. Also, does anybody know where and what price I can get a full carpet kit for the truck?

    Thanks,
    Chris M.

    Classictruckshop.com has carpet sets, a full set is about $250 and just a people area set is about $125. I don't know if they carry rear side panels, it wouldn't surprise me if they did.

    As a real cheap alternative I went to Home Depot and bought black indoor outdoor carpet( not the astro turf crap),Its a tight weave .pd 50 bucks ..and layed it myself..check it out at my website page 4 or 5 in the 70k5 album..turned out not too shabby..check out GMC Pauls website for the panels

    70K5 350ci.350/205 "PROJECT 40"BOGGERS" It runs and its clean !!

    Just as a reminder......SARAZK5 is an LMC Dealer, so if you happen to find stuff you want from them, she can probably save you a few bucks...

    I don't think they have those side panels though.

    I am just finishing my interior.. new carpet steering wheel, new seats ect... I did alot of shopping around and the best prices for the side panals and skins as well as carpet that was pre cut (that saved me many hours) was at Mile High Classics Trucks.. I think their website is milehighclassics.com but you really need to speak with Mike there and he can be a big help. They are located in Denver and Nobody matched thier prices.. I saved around 20 - 50 bucks off. Also they are real honest guys.. Hope this helps.. Tom Alexander

    Hey, thanks for all the info. I checked milehighclassics and classictruckshop. Both are cool. I also found www.salesco.com. They have Blazer carpet kits at about 225.00. Has anyone used them. I'm going to make my order from one of them in the next two days.
    That side panel price is a fu©&amp;ing killer.
    HEY DO ANY OF YOU GUYS GOT A PAIR FOR SALE.
    Also, my fasttrac top is being installed this week (if the weather warms up a bit). I'll post some pictures of it once it's on. These will be different because the top is white rather than black.

    For those rear panels:
    I just cut a piece of plywood to match the opening and covered it in the same material as the carpet. It screws on easily and looks good.
    Alot cheaper than buying the panels.

    You say they are warped and tweeked- but is the material ripped? If not, it may be removed , cleaned and reused on new backing. Just a thought. What color are you looking for?

    As far as saying their tweeked, I mean the panel itself has water damage. The exterior material is fine so color is not an issue, I can put that back on or something else.
    My question is what is the material the original panel is made of? Mine is kind of a thick cardboard material. Maybe it is not original. I don't know. If somebody knows what the original is made of let me know. It would be odd if the original is made of that cardboard, yet at gspp it's over 400.00$ to replace.

    Thanks,

    Chris M.

    The stuff is not cardboard, but it is closer to being cardboard than plywood. The material is the expensive part.
    I'd get some 1/8" masonite and reuse your material. I would also coat the stuff with a few heavy coats of polyurethane before recovering to protect against moisture. ( then put something between your material and the poly because over time the poly could react with the vinyl and cause damage. I don't know that but i wouldn't take the chance)
    The only problem area is the top front where the originals are molded around the pillar. I haven't figured out how to deal with that.

    if you have a table saw or a router you can use it to take off the lip. if the marterial on the old panel is salvageable you can peel it off the backing very carefully. then use a razorblade to cut closely around the rivets. then just cut a new piece out of plywood or masonite using the old one as a stencil and reapply the fabric. you will have to use slightly larger rivet things for the screw but you can get them at a craft store.
