Re: "Project S" - My boy Sam's '72 2wd Blazer -The Red Sled

Took a few parts to work and media blasted them. Then brought them home and painted them. It was the fuel tank straps, the retainer ring for the fuel tank sending unit and the two plates that mount the tank. They came out awesome. The fuel tank is about to go back in!

Re: "Project S" - My boy Sam's '72 2wd Blazer -The Red Sled

Tonight I nearly finished cutting and installing the new fuel line. I had one piece I cut a about two inches short (story of my life) due to a tight fitting so I need another foot of line and It'll be ready to install the tank again and get it buttoned up. I also installed the new fuel pump I ordered. It looks good. When I ran my daughter to dance tonight, I bought 5 gallons of fuel in anticipation of firing it up by Friday afternoon.

Next up is the brake booster issue.

Re: "Project S" - My boy Sam's '72 2wd Blazer -The Red Sled

The push to get her Street legal continues. More new parts! The park light housings came from a board member. With a quick media blast and a coat of clear, they look like new!

Sure wish I was taking it to the Charlotte auto fair this weekend!

The fuel system is hooked back up and she is running good. This also cured the hard idle.

Re: "Project S" - My boy Sam's '72 2wd Blazer -The Red Sled

Decided to add the trim so it looks more "road ready". In the state of NC, the DMV has to come to your house and inspect your vehicle once you license it. So, it effectively has to have everything working before I can tag it. I guess in my mind I figured the DMV guy may take it a bit more serious if it 'looks' like its ready for the road.

Now, I switch my focus on turn signals and brake lights. I've gotta make sure everything is working before I register it. If he has to come out for a reinspection, it costs me $75.

Re: "Project S" - My boy Sam's '72 2wd Blazer -The Red Sled

Sitting home. Stuck inside on a Saturday. Waiting for the remnants of Hurricane Florence to pass. But I had a new Blazer pic I thought I would add to the thread.

At least I think it looks cool!

Re: "Project S" - My boy Sam's '72 2wd Blazer -The Red Sled

So, ever since I started back on the Blazer, Iíve had a persistent ground issue. On Friday, I cut the wiring harness at the distributor and replaced it all the way to the starter. Not only did I find the problem, Iím shocked it didnít burn to the ground. Completely burned and melted to the header.

I also replaced the positive and negative battery terminals since they looked like crap. So, sheís back to starting on the first crank.

Donít have any pics of the new part installs but since sheís running again, I pulled her up into the yard and took some pics. Sheís almost road ready. Took it down to the end of the street again.

Re: "Project S" - My boy Sam's '72 2wd Blazer -The Red Sled

Looks great Jeff - I'm sure there are wiring issues on every truck after 50+ years of road use and storage.

Glad to hear you were able to track it down and get is resolved fairly easy.

Thanks! Yes, Iím not totally out of the woods yet. Wiring issues continue. Now I have discovered I have no turn signals, but this weekend I was able to get the park lights wired up!

Thanks! Yes I already have started installing the front fender trim but I have to get new stainless hardware because I donít like the hardware that came with it. And I have to drill the hood to install the trim. Iíve been too chicken to drill it.
