1972 Blazer.

Post by litebulblsc on September 4th 2010, 2:11 pm

Wanting to get started on this project. Got new parts that I am going to begin to strip and get rolled in primer so they will be ready for body work.

For those who haven't seen it, this is my Blazer.





It is a 1972 first gen Blazer that I bought from my dad back in 2008. When I bought it it looked like this.




I through the 6'' suspension lift, 36.5" tires and the 350 cu in engine in it. Along with the front sheet metal.

Now that you are caught up on the truck, I will start a new post on the progress being made (my laptop doesn't have a battery and likes to come unplugged a lot, so it is like I am saving my progress).

A couple weekend ago, I went and picked up a set of fenders and a set of doors. The fenders were not totally needed, but the passenger side one will save me some trouble. The thing I really needed was the doors.

Here are pics of the fenders and doors currently on the Blazer.

I stripped this one last year, it has 2 dents, a crack, and some emblems holes that need attention.


This one I am glad I got a replacement for.


The doors





The hood will only need stripped and painted. The cowl cover will need the antenna hole welded shut and I want to add some steel mesh to help keep debris out.


The new passenger side fender appears to be all original. I started stripping it down today. It has trim holes that will need welded plus some dents that will probably have to be bondo'd.


This is the driver side fender I bought. The PO started body work on it.



That is all the pics I got for now. If I am posting too much or too little pictures, let me know and I will adjust accordingly.

Thanks,
Josh

We love pictures, especially ones that show what the project looked like in the beginning. It is always amazing after you are done to look back and see where it all started and then all you can say is "DAMMMMMM" Very Happy

I have always liked that style of Blazer.
Its one of the Chebby cars/trucks that I really do like!
I'm enjoying watching your progress, so keep posting as many pics as you like!
