Question Trim Parts brand K/5 Blazer emblems

Since I have been happy with previous Trim Parts brand emblems and tailgate band for my 1972 Cheyenne Super, I have purchased their emblems and the tailgate band for my 1970 Blazer. Oddly enough, they offer 1973-up Blazer fender emblems, but not any that I can find for 1969-72. What is out there for QUALITY fender emblems without spending several hundred bucks on NOS?

You could also go with a set from Rad Machining - I had a set made up and they turned out pretty good - you can have whatever want made up - including custom badges if your truck has a name, etc....

I bought Classic Parts 59-055. They were exactly like the originals, as far as I can tell.

I had no idea quality was an issue. The ones I bought from Bill's Trucks are perfect and have been on my truck for over 4 years.

I just want the best readily available emblems. Trim Parts emblems have always been as good or even better than GM in my experience. I see Counterpart reproduces them. I will give them a look.

I'll second RAD Machining's emblems. They're solid pieces. I have a custom 8-383 badges for my engine size.
