Re: My '71 2WD Blazer K/5

...and the notch got worked on over the weekend as well. I'll try and get back here and update it more often. Slowly but surely... placed the back wheels to see how it's going to look.

I'm curious to know what it is. Mine just says special order fleet colour. No paint code. But it looks a lot like yours. I'm trying to find out what my code would be, pretty sure it's the 505 but not 100% sure.

Looking awesome! I'm actually quite jealous. I wish I had the stones to cut mine up.

Re: My '71 2WD Blazer K/5

A few photos from last summer. Did a small event with JohnyG and a bunch of other C10 Club guys, then it was at the Brothers show... then pretty much went into hibernation until recently.

Re: My '71 2WD Blazer K/5

Recently decided to jump back into it and give it a facelift, i'm just too fond of that '67 front end... goodbye to the '71/'72 grille and goodbye to the green patina and the "Tortuga" nickname given by Ronnie (c10talk)

LOoks crazy. Looks to be a lot of chop in the bed to get things to fit.
