    Can anyone point me to rear hatch hardware for 1969 K5 Blazer? Specifically I need posts that bolt to cap and body on each side, where the hatch locked. Also any parts from inside the hatch, rods, latches, etc. would be a welcome find. I am intesested too, if anyone has a complete hatch (glass not necessary) with hardware. I can also be reached privately at gislerhj@mchsi.com
    Thanks

    Good luck on that...

    The usual suspects like ChevyDuty, LMC and Early Classic Enterprises have SOME of the parts needed to restore the old tops, but there are some items that NOBODY makes a repro item for.

    Hatch guts are one of those areas where you're unlikely to find parts (except by buying other hatches or complete tops). The rear support rods/slides are also reported to be as rare as hen's teeth.

    When it comes to certain 1st Gen K5 parts, there are some items that take forever to find. I've gotten lucky and found some rare carpet holdowns, and some interior trim that I wanted....but I've been on the lookout for the last couple of years.
