Light Grey Armrests

Does anyone know where I can find light grey armrests for 1969 GMC?
I tried using light grey SEM on my dark grey armrests but the paint just keeps cracking. I guess because they get a lot of use from closing the doors.

Re: Light Grey Armrests

These aren't correct but the early 50's arm rests are what I put in my Burban. They come is several colors. I used the grey and black ones. And they bolt on with no modification.

I bought them local from Dan's Classic Chevrolet. Here is a link to Classic Industries' website.

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: Light Grey Armrests

One of my favourite discoveries was that 1991-1998 Geo Tracker armrests are a perfect fit on our trucks. I mean like a glove. And they are reminisent of the the 67 handle so they don't look out of place.

Basically free at a junkyard, give them a try. I wouldn't suggest it to most purists except that you did want it in grey and they are pretty much all grey.

I put them on my 70 because I had nothing else handy and I was scrapping my Tracker and thought why not.

I will post a pic of it installed tomorrow if I remember/anyone is interested.

My interior is a lighter grey. I bought the darker grey ones you have originally. Then decided to coat them in the lighter SEM color.

Re: Light Grey Armrests

That is a nice truck Lux. I am doing mine in a similar color combo. I want to use the door panels from a '72 and was wanting to dye them light gray but now I may not if the dye flakes off of the arm rests. Got more pictures?

If you look at 503 green long enough you realize its got a little grey to it. The inside of my cab is sprayed satin so its not shinny on my eyes while driving. So I figured even though it's not an original color I'd use a light grey. The door panels are covered in a vinyl material I found at Hobby lobby. Most everything else is sprayed with SEM. The SEM works good on everything but the armrests. Because I use them to close the door, the SEM keeps cracking. Maybe I didn't prep them right for the SEM paint,,but I'm pretty sure I did. I think that SEM paint just can't take a lot of abuse. The color combo is a little different but I like it.
