    I was just thinking that I have my truck to a good point mechanically and now would like to start working on the body a little bit just to get rid of some of the major rust. Where is a good place to get new panels/doors/tailgates from? I have a limited buget so take that into mind. Thanks for all your help. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    LMC truck sells everything you need. You can order a catalog form there web site for free. They are a bit expensive, you might look in junk yards in the desert areas such as AZ. They are more likely to have rust free parts. Good luck. I just cut all my rust off w/ the sawzall and let the trail do all my body work /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Depending on what you want to replace your parts with, I would look into 2 places. The first is LMC Truck - They produce a very complete catalog for Blazers. Also, there is a company called US BODY SOURCE if you want to go the 'glass route (not cheap stuff, but very nice and durable, and NO RUST EVER AGAIN). Both places are on the web. Good Luck.

    Too bad you weren't closer . A local here in AZ is selling a whole 84 tub and frame (roller) for 650.00 /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Napa in town has cheap body panels. Around 100 for doors, 70 for front fenders but 300 for rear quarters. Those are rough prices I can't remember exactly. He said that if your not in a hurray and can wait a couple for weeks for some more orders shipping is free.

    Well, tomorrow morning I'm going out welder shopping. I guess I'll see if I can patch mine up if I can get a good deal. If not I may be hittin up Napa. Thanks.
