Re: New life for an old 2wd, farm Blazer

The owner will be glad he went with taking the body off the frame. At this point it's not that much more work and the results will be noticable. Just about ready for some color there.

Re: New life for an old 2wd, farm Blazer

Ok, so at 10:57 this morning, you posted work on the windshield frame. At 11:08, the body came off. By 1:46 a ton of work had been done and primer was sprayed. For my sanity, please tell me that you didn't do all this between 10:57 and 1:46.........that would really kill my motivation today.

LOL! I work as hard and fast as I can, but I can't get stuff done that fast!. I think I mentioned awhile back that this build is actually a lot further along than the current pics show. I was always going to do a thread as progress was being made, but just never seemed to find the time. I try to post more pics every saturday. I've actually been working on my own blazer for the last month or month and a half. So thats why I didn't post for about a month straight. I didn't want to stop my own progress! I need to post on it again as well.

Re: New life for an old 2wd, farm Blazer

Ok, good. I'm not nuts. If you had done all that today, I was gonna load mine up and head to SD. I figured by Tuesday, you'd have this one done and could have mine done by next week!

Re: New life for an old 2wd, farm Blazer

This pic scared me at first. I thought to myself, "Oh man! That's too bad. All that work for it to fall off the lift?" then I went back up and read and took a second look and realized it was on the rotisserie.

A little undercoat in some hard to reach areas, before the "B" pillar supports are installed for good.

Re: New life for an old 2wd, farm Blazer

The reason the rear part of the bed floors rust, is because the tires throw water and dirt, which pack in the gaps from the floor ribs. I seam sealed these areas to eliminate any future problems.

Wheel tubs installed. I plan to seam seal them, and paint over the bolt heads for that "factory look".

Re: New life for an old 2wd, farm Blazer

Time to get the chassis tore down, sandblasted, painted and parts ordered, so I have somewhere to put the body, once the firewall and inside are painted.

Re: New life for an old 2wd, farm Blazer

Got the frame and parts sandblasted. Found a few things that need some attention. One of the body mount frame pieces is broke off. Also found a crack near a steering box bolt.
