    I want to put rear panels in my blazer. I am going to use plywood, probably 1/4 in. Does anyone have a template I could "steal" from you to make these?

    Don't have a template but I can recommend you go thicker than 1/4" unless all you want is a thin "aesthetic" panel. Mounting anything in 1/4" will be not very strong. Used 5/8" when I did mine out of particleboard, other guys have used MDF. See link below for pictures of my panels.

    Do you not have the original ones or did your truck not come with the panels?

    I may take you up on that. I was going to go the get together at Lake Pleasant but I just came down with some horrible friggin flu and I feel like [censored]! I'm goijng to Rocky Point in two weeks so I'm trying to stay healthy for that.
    By the way what is MDF ? I'm going to guess medium density fiberboard. I might stick some 6x9 speakers in there, maybe a door in the rear for cables or other "junk" so I guess 1/4 in wouldnt really work.
