    i need the two peices that the rear window slides in inside the tailgate. I think they are called window guide cams or something. this is the only thing preventing me from putting my hardtop back on my truck. without the window installed, it will rain in my ride. the two i had were severely rusted when i went to recondition them and beyond repair.


    thanx

    in all the search i havent really tried the dealer to be honest but i did find a company in Ca that wanted 25 each and i thought that was a little high for a peice of channel a few inches long. if i would have been thinking straight, i would have kept the old rusted ones and just fabbed two new ones. cant be that hard. maybe ill go see the dealer tommarrow

    The channels are about a foot long with the felt stripping in them. $25.00 each sounds reasonable but i'm not sure what i paid for mine but they are factory original GM pieces from the dealer.

    They are in good condition. They are from a 91 tailgate. Make me an offer. Then we can exchange addresses and I'll send them out and you can send me a money order. Let me know what else you need. I may have other things that you need also. I try to get parts to sell all the time. I took some parts to the Long Beach auto swap meet yesterday and made some money off of the things that I had.
