Re: What goes here? (Interior bedside gap)

Looks like a decent alternative, long enough to experiment with rolling over the ends.

Re: What goes here? (Interior bedside gap)

Another thought would be to use the long suburban panel strips. They are about 71" on the long side and would only require one cut. they are the same profile as the upper door panel strips The short side is about 47'' . I probably still have some from part outs but would have to look

Anybody have a length on the Blazer ones?

Most women like the strong, silent type… Fortunately for me, my wife prefers the out-of-shape, mouthy type.

Re: What goes here? (Interior bedside gap)

OK, an update on this little issue and another question for someone knowledgeable.

Update: I ended up ordering stainless tile edging cutting it to length, manually rolling the ends, then polishing the hell out of it. They turned our incredibly nice. So, I ended up with a very believable set of "retainers" as the assembly manual called them for ~$90 plus some work. Not bad.

But, a quick question - does the [protective sheet metal box for the filler-neck stay on underneath the rear vinyl panels? If so it's going to create a funky gap. Anyone know how the CST's were built WRT that piece?

Nice work.

Factory CST K5s lacked that cover for the metal fuel filler neck, which the panels covered. The cover was used on non-CST K5s.

Perfect! That's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.
