Later Model door trim panels in 82 s10 question

Postby XXXXXXXX » Wed Feb 08, 2017 2:47 am

So I bought some door interior trim panels out of like a 90'ish s10. I tried to install them in my 82 s10. They don't fit. There are several issues...

#1 They kinda stick out behind the window crank. As in.. the are not flat.. it looks like how they are molded ... they hit the metal of the door. Has anyone run into
this and if so what did you do to get them to fit? Its like when they molded the trim panel they moved the arm rest forward.. and the part behind the front of the arm rest is molded different and hits the metal and makes it stick out or makes it look pregnant right there.

#2 The arm rest is different and mounts different. So when I go to put the 90's trim panel on my 82.. the screws that go into the arm rest have no place to go. My 82
has a metal piece for them to screw into but it sits about 6 inches or so farther toward the rear of the door.. They must have changed the mounting location in the later model s10s.. has anyone run across this and what did you do?

Thanks X

88-92 were basically the same. So find an 87 and older.....if you can. They've become quite rare

82 to 85 panels should be the same. When gm changed the dash in 86 they changed the door panels too to fit the dash. If your panels come from a truck with round gauges you're good to go. If you're looking at truck with the square gauge cluster, move on.
1985 S10 originally 2.5 and a 4 spd 3.42 rear. Now 350 and 700r4 still 3.42's.
