    I know a bunch of people reccomend LMC, but I have been looking through "Truck Shop"s catalog, in orange CA, and they have alot of stuff I dont remember seeing in LMC, and their prices arent too bad either. Basically im looking at alot of interior parts like the firewall pads,, glove boxes, bolt kits, ashtray, grommets, stuff liek that. Its going to be better weather here soon and I want to get a painless body kit and redo the interior and wiring now. Just wondering some other companies to get parts, since its been a couple years since ive even touched the blazer. Thanks.

    I know a guy here in Fremont that runs a place called Vintage Chevy Trucks, his name is Bill. I know he used to have nothing but used stuff but then i heard he now has new as well. Might give him a call to see what he might have or if he can refer you some place for whatever you're needing. His number is 510-651-5874. http://www.vintagechevytrucks.com/

    Do this "truck shop" have a web site? I've never heard of them. Did you look at www.Chevyduty.com ? Theyre prices beat lMC alot. I bought alot of my parts from them and I have an LMC catalog. Also www.classicindustries.com Sells alot of parts. Theyre catalog is huge.

    I dont see any link to it. Unless im reading it wrong it says "but I have been looking through "Truck Shop"s catalog, in orange CA,". I tried to look them up on a search engine with no luck. Can you send me the site? Thanks.

    I think vintage air. They have a kit for the 73 and up trucks I was looking at for my 78. If there isnt one for first gens, they make those under dash ones that are supposed to be hidden.

    resto parts

    You might try www.bumpandgrindgarage.com, it's got good prices on early Chevy truck parts, the company is in Texas and Virginia,my daughters boyfriend and his father own it and are easy to work with.
