Turned out awesome! Wonder if they'd make some for others?

Re: Lets see those blazer interiors!

Bit of a work in progress.











Just replaced the seat and put the top back on for winter. Once I get the rockers repaired id like to spray the inside with a dark gray bedlinen.

Last time I looked LMC sold a few parts but not the whole assembly. It's a junkyard quest.

How easy or hard was that install?

The seats?

If that's what you're asking the answer is not too bad. I used 1/4 think steel bars and matched them to the stock seat holes. Then added holes for the new seats.

I used the factor bolts to secure the brackets to the floor and 1/2" bolts to secure the seats to the bracket. Took a weekend but there was no welding involved just a lot of drilling and cutting steel bars. I didn't add a single hole to the Blazer. I will tell you that you may want to add some underside reinforcement to the brackets since now a shoulder belt will be pulling against the floor.

Re: Lets see those blazer interiors!

Are all Blazer driver seats a fixed base with only a slider? Did any flip up or have a forward folding back like older extended cab trucks?

Did you take any pics by any chance? Does the rear fold forward as well as pull out completely? The passenger front seat probably doesn't fold forward though, does it? If not does it slide up enough to get in the back?

I took some pictures of the front and back. I'll dig them up and post them. The front does not "flip" up like the stock seat but both seat slide and tilt forward with plenty of room to get in the back. I'm 6'3" at 230lbs and I can move in and out just fine.
