Ebay! They were on there a couple weeks ago.

I have the visor with bolts and caps and have a couple side windows I may not use. Let me know if you still need them and I'll see if I can part with them.

Re: thinking about getting this in the morning

Very nice restoration!

I read the entire thread start to finish. Interesting because I have a 91 Suburban that desperately needs some TLC.

Re: thinking about getting this in the morning

Anyone have a suggestion on how to remove frozen screws from aluminum frame? Buggers are frozen TIGHT! You Tube showed using a torch but I don't want to destroy the rubber seal. Also saw using wax but don't understand how it would get under head of screw. Thought about trying to heat just the screw with a soldering gun then quenching with ice. What says the hive?

ETA: This is to remove side cap vent windows.

I have twins girls at university of south florida and one is there now so I am sure she could collect them from your wife. I am happy to pay you what you think is fair for them to cover your trouble.

I'll see what I can do. I got my wife first class tickets so she "should" have luggage space. I still need to get the top and make sure the vents are good for you.... I'll keep you posted.

Re: thinking about getting this in the morning

Yea. Open up the slider and that bracket is held down by two phillips head screws. You'll need to remove the rubber filler gasket that just pulls out. No need to deal with that single flat head screw. Hopefully the ones I send you have better set screws.

Two on bottom, two on top. Get those squirted with penetrating oil. One on each bottom bracket were frozen when I took them off.

Re: thinking about getting this in the morning

Silverado badges. Nice touch. Anyone know the years those were used? I think 88-91, but it might have been only 90 and 91? Seems like you only saw those on the trucks with the updated grill.

Yes, thanks. those were there originally, I just replaced them with new ones after we painted it. My truck is a 91'. Says Silverado on the dash emblem too.

I used older style K5 fender emblems, mirrors and trim moldings because I dont care for the new plastic ones. I never tried to keep things stock for the year of the truck, I just set it up based on what I like.

My '88 doesn't have them and it's a totally stock Silverado. Just for information purposes.

10-4, I remember seeing the top painted with the glass out. I didn't know it had them before.

I canít tell you how many people have told me to put big chrome wheels on the truck but I prefer the 15Ē Steelyís over a shiny set of 22ís any day Lol. To each his own I guess.

My 89' has them so I'd say 89-91.
