Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Not complicated at all. Just used a prepsol to clean the inserts. Back of the vinyl has grids to make measuring easier. Cut to length and width. Removed the top 1 1/2 of the backer and attached all the way across the top. Then worked the vinyl from the larger area to the smaller area. Used a firm squeege to get air bubble out as you move along. Make sure the vinyl is tight against both sides of the raised perimeter detail and use a brand new razor blade to cut the vinyl off the top of the detail. Use the center of the razor blade and hold almost horizontally. I did each of the six perimeter sections one at a time. Making sure the vinyl was attached well and used 3-4 razor blades.

Not really. They are out there. Check your local K5 Facebook pages or marketplace. I had an extra one just sold to a member here.

Got some satin black on all the seat brackets and air cleaner assembly. Would have more pictures but had to pack up early because of another thunderstorm.

Sorry Dale I missed this. Not yet. Still at the shop getting a few other tweaks like an odometer swap, choke adjust, and slider windows: http://www.musclecarrestorations.com...Blazer-72-001/
