    My 76 K-5 has some scars on the aluminum tailgate trim panel. So far, I have been unable to find anyone willing or able to try and restore the finish to this piece. LMC does not list this part as being available and GM has discontinued the part also. Any ideas on a way to re-furbish the panel. Or any ideas as to a professional I might be able to take this to in order to affect a repair /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif....thanks!!!

    The chevy duty catalog has only the notch-top version for the pickup truck. The one my K-5 has is just a elongated rectangle.

    I have the stainless steel tailgate band.. that big piece right in the middle.. it's off a 89 Blazer. I'm sure it'll fit the 76..
    That's only if your wanting to buy a used one cheap !!!

    The problem with later ones is that they are notched from what I know so far. Take a look at the measurements and let me know. 7.5"x66.5" with no notch or cutout. It is only an elongated rectangle. I would be interested if it is in good shape and fits.....thanks!!!
