Looking for reputable shops with blazer experience for restoration
 
Love this board but there is so many threads I wasn't able to find if this question has been answered before. I am looking to have a 72 blazer restored and updated. I see some great builds on here but unfortunately I just don't have the time and tools to do the job.

Hoping a few of you can give me some recommendations of places that have experience with restomods and can point me in the right direction. Location doesn't matter that much as I can have the truck shipped when completed. Definitely going with a 4x4, LS motor, with upgraded suspension and steering. Also considered a frame swap with a later model tahoe.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I highly recommend not swapping the frame with a late model chassis. That said I'm all for the LS swap and restomod. Plan to drop an LS in a scout I'm restoring.

I currently don't have a reputable shop but getting ready to start one. I've been an engineer going on 8 years and finally decided it's not for me. My family owns a small steel supply shop in WV and recently put in a four bay garage for automotive work. I've put in my notice at my current job that I'll be leaving in June to start my own restoration shop there. Going to make a go of it and see what happens. I plan on focusing on early SUVs blazers, scouts, broncos etc. I currently own a 72 blazer a 79 scout traveler and 77 scout II I'll be restoring for myself or resale depending on what business I get to pay the bills. I'd like to take on projects on a one in one out basis.

Appreciate the response. I'm in no rush to start the project so lets talk in a few weeks and discuss the project I had in mind.

Check out Turp Mcspray's build. He's a pro out of Rapid City, SD.
