    Does anyone know where to find light covers for the interior and the back area? nmine are missing, and have been for some time. another question, should i consider upgrading my alternator? when i drive, the idle and voltmeter fluctuate with the amount of current i have running, its not affecting much, its just annoying that the lights dim, and occasionally the radio cuts out and gets staticky.
    any thoughts? thanks a bunch fellow k5'rs

    unless you are running alot of highpower lights or stereo equipment then a standard alternator should be fine. Yours might be going south and need replacement. They don't have to die 100%, they can just not put out full power. I would have it checked. Most auto parts stores will do it for free.

    As for the light covers, I would say GM direct or maybe LMC might have them.
