how do i replace this piece?
any info please, TIA
Buy the post from LMC and splice it in. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
is that what they are calling cab corners?
I just looked in the LMC catalog and I dont see that part.
It should be called a "B" pillar or lock pillar, GM part# is 347115(discontinued), try napa or another supplier in your area. If you can't get the part then you'll have to cut out the exising one, beyond the area thats already been welded, and just make a new piece of metal to fit in the hole.It would be best to weld a backing plate in so you have at least 1" of overlap for strength.
Check any body shops in your area also. They might have the pillar laying around. JcWhitney might have it.. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
I'm pretty sure that a post off a 73-77 p/u truck will be the same, maybe look into that. Gives you more options if you try finding a used one.
