    Installing gaskets on a K5 full size blazer top

    I am new to the site and I am looking for any info on how to properly install new gaskets on the top. It has recently be painted and the top Rhino lined. The paint shop purchased new gaskets for me but it does not say where they go. I can tell which ones go on the bed rails but that is it. Some of the packages have part numbers but not all. Also I need to know how to keep the gaskets in place while installing the top.

    Installing gaskets on a 1988 K5 full size blazer top

    It is a 1988 I looked at the LMC website and I will try to see if I can match them up with what I have.The kit I received had the doors and windshield gaskets as well. I seem to have more than I need which is causing the issue. Some do not seem to go with the 88 I have but not sure.

    Got it done

    Thanks for all the help! We installed the gaskets last night and put the top in place this afternoon. Once we get it all back together we will get some pics sent in. This is a very useful site. We are new to restoration and it is nice to have a place to go for help from experts. Again thanks for y'alls help.
