Been following your 2wheel project for a while now it's really came along way and it's looking fantastic! Looks as if we both bought 4wheel Blazers around the same time got my last one around the end of March. Nice to see these come back to our city. Here's mine.

^ Nice - and it came with a Hickey roof rack. Was that an Ohio truck? Looks pretty clean for these parts...

Congrats on snagging that one up!

A few more updates from DeWayne at NSaneHotRodz and the update from what was under the paint of the blue tub. A few spots of rust, but nothing compared to the original tub...

Never would have guessed. That blue tub looked solid. Won't be much left other than frame rails and vin plate...

Re: Lks Dcvn - 1972 2WD Blazer Build

Selling off the parts off the blue and original tubs to offset the cost of new sheet metal. The labor hours to fix the blue tub are more than buying new metal in some spots - so working smarter not harder in some spots.

Cool! It's neat watching a basically brand-new Blazer being built.
