Hey guys, I am needing to buy the rear filler panel for my tailgate on my 86 K-10. Yep, that @#$#! expensive "brushed aluminum" panel that I have priced at such places as LMC truck parts for approx. $500!!!
Does anybody have any suggestions on where to find one at a more reasonable price? Ebay is a no-go, never found one there yet. And the boneyards around here have nothing to offer.
Just wondered if anybody else had found a good part for less?

theres a place called classic parts.com they have the same stuff as lmc but are way cheaper thier tailgate bands are $325 for chevy, $300 for gmc and $125 for plain( which all youd have to do is drill some holes for an emblem which are about $30
I ran into the 300 to 500 dollar problem myself and decided to buy a sheet of diamond plate aluminum and will cut the piece to fit the tailgate and still have left over to maybe use on door runners or trim extras in the cab. May be an option. The sheet cost 150 bucks.
