Thanks for the advice, I had to replace the alternator this weekend and I got the same advice for a chrome alternator (not to do it because the retain heat and fail sooner than the regular cast metal).

Seeing your K5 is making me drool. I'am totally in love with it. Don't tell my wfe or she'll be jeaslous. She thinks i spend too much time with mine trucks as it is.

What are the specs on her?

Re: How about some pics of 69-72 Blazers and Jimmys.

Here's my '72 Blazer. A project of course, although the '68 burb and '68 4x4 may take over the work space in the next week or two.

Not really much done to it. Straight body with no exterior rust. Just rust on the bed floor. I'll probably shoot some flat black epoxy on it this week, maybe weld in patches for the markers lights (haven't decided yet), polish up the chrome etc. 33's with 16" steelies and a small 2" lift out back. Stock up front. 350 crate motor, stock tranny and 3:73 rear end. For being such a big beast it spins the tires easy.

Re: How about some pics of 69-72 Blazers and Jimmys.

Here are the before and current pictures.

10 years ago it was all the same color....working....driving....useful...since then it has pretty much sat.

Now I am finally wrenching on it again, you can see I am changing the color to orange. Hopefully this summer it is finished and I can update the picture.

Bought it this way. Didn't want to get into a long project at this time. I bought some lower trim from you for my blue 70 4x4 about a year or two ago. Have you done anything new to your blazer ?

That 's funny you mention that. I just sent you a message. For some reason I thought it was k5 emblems. I haven't done much to mine, but drive it hard and put it away wet. I can't wait for the warm weather. I still take mine out in the cold, but its not as comfortable. I moved to Davis and bought another '72, but since this is a blazer thread, I'll post a pic.
