Source for upper body side moldings

I'm wanting to paint my 70 Blazer two tone, and getting close on the body and will be spraying when it warms up.

I haven't been able to find the upper body side moldings. I can find complete sets for the lower moldings, but the upper sets I find are for truck only. Do I need to cut down a truck molding to fit? If so, how do you recommend cutting them to avoid damage?

Are counterpart moldings OK? The pic below shows the upper moldings and two tone paint.



Thank you,

Wes

I think Blazers never came with upper moldings. Cutting and bending ends on the rear piece to correct length, is something I also would like to know.

Thank you for the suggestions. I could not find them on Mar-K's site, but I did send a message to ask.

Oops. Sorry, it’s the 67-68 molding they make that I am confused with.

They did not offer 2 tone paint and upper mouldings on blazers but I do like the look

Re: Source for upper body side moldings

Thank you for the suggestions. I may go ahead and order the truck trim to cut down for the bed sides

Re: Source for upper body side moldingsClass

Classic Industries has short and long bed upper molding kits ......upper short kit $317.....no experience with their trim. 2 places they show a 2 tone Blazer dark green and white with both trim. Call and ask who makes their trim?......IMO ...Mar-K is very good.

Re: Source for upper body side moldings

I would say Classic Industries sources theirs overseas but I could be wrong. Mar-k is top notch from what I’ve seen and is made in the US. I would pay more for US made quality.
