Painting questions

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Mar 13, 2000.

    I am currently re-painting the old blazer and was wondering if anyone can help me with some questions.
    <font color=green>1st</font color=green>. I was thinking of doing the cap with some type of bedliner paint, any suggestions? Like Herculiner but not as expensive.
    <font color=green>2nd</font color=green>. Where can I get moldings, emblems, fender moldings to match the origionals? GM dealers?
    <font color=green>3rd</font color=green>. I removerd the top to get to some of the rust, now every one in the world who doesn't own a Blazer tells me that it won't ever seal, I know it will but should I take any precautions, New seal, silicone?
    Thanks for any help.

    <font color=green>2nd</font color=green>The emblems, mouldings, etc, you will find them at http://www.lmctruck.com and at http://www.cheyennepickup.com. Their sites don't list parts, but order their catalogs. They an invaluable source of Blazer parts.

    <font color=green>3rd</font color=green>The top will seal back as long as you tighten the top bolts firts. It won't need silicone or anything else.

    ABO,

    You can find some emblems on ebay. I see them advertised on there all the time, cheap too. Just type in Blazer for your search. Regarding the Bedliner, I coated my entire cab with Durabak. It like Herculiner, but it has rubber chips in it for non skid. It is very good. I wouldn't say that it is invincible, but good enough. Cost me a little over $80 a gallon. Hope this helps yah.

    The duplicolor bedliner is half the price($50), you can spray it ($35 gun) and a few people said it was good quality. It may only come in black though, Im looking for grey.
