I'm looking for the body chrome trim i plan on two tone paint job by next spring/summer I would like to have truck primed by fall this year. The chrome body trim my c10 is an 85 long box. Wondering about 5 bolt rally wheels. I was also having issues opening my tailgate currently its shut and I cannot get it open anyone have any ideas besides Sawall. There are few badges also I will look at what I need. Also bed rails black or chrome I'm not picky they can need to be cleaned up. I maybe need suggestions on muffler cans for my truck also I ordered headers I would like to run straight pipes back to muffler and tip the ends. Thank you everyone let me know what you got.

Try pushing against the tailgate while pulling the handle to release. If this doesn't work then take a #2 Flathead through the gap between the tailgate and bedside and release the latch(es).

Everywhere from Amazon to every classic car parts house has the lower chrome trim. Either by the roll, or precut for a few bucks more.

I could possibly get trim, i have tailgate hardware, I have wheels, and I have quite a few emblems....

Not sure it's really worth using recycled peel n stick lower trim molding. Would have to find good pieces (most all old stuff on trucks is weathered or yellowed and would have to get good long pieces for doors bed sides and tailgate) It's still only $107 on Amazon for a full roll, enough to do the whole truck, but looks like alot of places are $150-200 especially for the pre cut kits)

That said, anyone near me needs some pieces, I have a whole trucks worth that I took off (chrome, not black) that could replace probably half the pieces or more on a truck with a few messed up pieces. Come get it or it'll be in the garbage can before too long.

I used this on my 83 K5. It matches the metal corners perfectly. I make a point to put some 303 on it every time I wash the old girl and it still looks good 2 years later living out in the Texas sun.
