That turned out great. I wish that I would have caught you before you choose the color. Are those original seats or something else?
is the blue one going to be for sale?

I just bought a 72 Jimmy on Nov 1st, so I am just beginning my journey with this style truck, but holy cow that orange one is awesome. That is a beautiful blazer. Looking forward to see this new one you have turns out.

I know this is not a for sale posting! but I do have some of the parts I am not going to be using when I put back together if anyone is interested? Let me know but I will be posting more pictures of the build in the next 2-3 weeks. Spare tire holder, original speaker and mount, cross member, all heating and cooling, console.

Thanks

Someone could not get back bumper off so they cut the frame horns off(never understand)! So I found another blazer and got the horns off it and got them installed today!! Starting to make progress! Body comes off next .

Not much happening right now but going to remove body next week and start on frame and let body guy get started on painting after i have the body media blasted! Will update next week!

Thanks for updates. Any insight on media blasting? I am torn between all the methods or trying a DIY solution like wet sanding or soda.

twp1 12-28-2017 04:29 PM

Re: 1972 Blazer ls swap
 
if i had time i would do it myself but local guy is not that expensive to media blast!

Re: 1972 Blazer ls swap

Re: 1972 Blazer ls swap
 
so it is truly a bolt in piece, my blazer is a dd so I need to make sure this is a efficient swap, also did you get any special wiring set up to connect the two?

twp1 01-07-2018 09:50 AM

Re: 1972 Blazer ls swap
 
Yes it is a bolt in piece but not sure what you mean about wiring?
