Sort of I guess. Think I'll jump all over the place like in the documentary "Last Dance"

Re: 1972 cst k5

The windshield went in real nice.
Original polished stainless trim with a precision seal.
Lots of precision lube really helps get it in place.

Re: 1972 cst k5

Strong work! Keep the photos coming. What’s your opinion on the quality of the CST rear panels?

Re: 1972 cst k5

How did the door hanging go?

I assembled my doors yesterday, and plan to install them today.

I took a scribe around the hinges prior to removing them, but unfortunately the scribes didn't make it through my paint and primer process.

The Blazer looks great!

Love the rear panels from PUI. Better than OEM in my humble opinion. A bit thicker and richer vinyl. Perfect fit, easy install.

Re: 1972 cst k5

The carpet should go in before the seats and carpet trim strip are installed. Just a heads up
