Thanks Rob! It should look like that the next time you see it in Oct. for CTC. Will the SuperBurb be there this year?

Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

The bagging has begun! I want to get the control arms, bags, and Accuair all setup, working, and driving. After that, I will narrow another axle that I have to be able to mount my American Racing Gassers that I bought over a year ago...

Thanks! Yeah, that's the idea, although my junk will never look as good as SactoJim's truck.

I couldn't help it...... I think it looks AWESOME!





I do need to do some narrowing on the rear end though.

Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

It's been very slow progress, but I finally got it off the jackstands... for now anyway. I still have to set up the rear height sensors for the Accuair, mount the valves and ECU, run the airlines, and wire everything up. But here are my motivation pics for now, aired all the way up, aired all the way down, and where I hope my ride-height will be. Excuse the mess, there was some thrashing going on in there to get to this point.

I have to go back to work in TX now, and I only have 2 weeks left to work on it before Cruisin' the Coast... Why do I always wait until last minute to get things done?

Thanks Guys!

I just have bags and c-notch in the rear, with bags and PB 1" narrowed/1" forward control arms on the stock crossmember. Still have inner fenders all around. All of it will be controlled by an Accuair e-level system.

Awesome! Did you go forward arms to center wheel in wheelwell and narrowed for the particular backsapce on your wheels?

I'm going to be doing the same on my '68 soon and want to make sure I'm thinking about this the right way.
