    I have a 1988 K5. In 2 weeks I am repairing the floors. While I was removing the interior I found a spot that needs to be repaired. The loction is behind the driver seat were the floor meets the wall, its the panel were the seat belt bolts to the wall. LMC has a part# 38-7912 called footwell. Is this the right part? If I can get pictures tomorrow, I will put them in.
    Thanks,
    Tom

    I was on your exact situation. I ordered a couple of those. The pic in the catalog is very deceiving. It is not what you think it is- it is the footwell for the front seat- the kickpanel.
    I even posted up on here and asked folks if they thought it was for the back...which they did. Like I said, bad pic. Don't make my mistake. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
