Most body shops would repaint/tint the tailgate to match better. Did they match paint chips or use a reference like the old one? I worked at a body shop for a few years and that is what we would do.
Nonetheless it looks great. Thanks for the pics
Nice! In a few weeks i should be done collecting all the parts for a new tailgate. But i have to get all new stuff. My tailgate falls apart every time ifs opened. Stupid salt lol.
The paint code used may have gotten the tailgate closer to how it looked coming out of the factory.
I will say that even though most LMC (and others) parts have to be modified to fit I am glad that somebody does still make the parts...for how much longer? Who knows...
Nice Job ! How did you get the tailgate from Rattling ? , My blazer tailgate makes a lot of noise !! Thanks Don
FYI, 33's should fit without any lift with no problems. I have 33's on my stock k10 'burb.
Thanks , I'm worken on that talgate now -)I put new weatherstripping on the inside and it really holds it snug! Really gotta give it a decent shove to close it now.. After 30 years, the stripping really gets flattened out. it used to drive me insane with all the squeaks and rattles it made...
Good to know! I've really got the fever for wheels and tires... Think I'm going to stay old school with 15x10's.. But the truck is already a pig with 31's (that actually only measure to 29") so I'm planning on ripping the tbi 305 and replace it with something that makes 400+ before then... and then a 3" lift with 33's or so. The goal is a 4x4 K5, but with hot rod styling. I'm not building it to go fast, I've got a pretty radical Camaro for that, i just want it to be able to get out of its own way.... A fun cruiser that can beat up on the new trucks
