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

I can't believe it's been over a month since I have updated this thread. I have gotten it back from the body shop. The driver's rocker has been replaced and color matched. Original mirror arms (that were in the glovebox) have been put back on and the holes from the big ugly mirrors have been filled with small screws that were color matched. I used a stainless panel plug to fill the aftermarket antenna hole in the cowl so as not to disturb the original paint. It has all new trim everywhere and has been polished to perfection (Thanks again Kevin!), but still need to clean up and repaint the grille. The entire cooling system, clutch, u-joints have all been replaced as well as servicing the 4-speed transmission just to make sure I don't have any problems while at Cruisin' the Coast. Speaking of CTC, Friday I will drive the Blazer to work and will leave directly from there to head North to Natchitoches for the Return to the 50's car show. Sunday we will caravan from Natchitoches to Mississippi for CTC! If you see me or the Blazer while we are out & about, come introduce yourself as I would love to meet y'all.

Here are a few pics of it's current state. The round mirrors are what I ended up with, the rectangular mirrors were cheap and vibrated bad while driving.

I was hoping to get the seats recovered before CTC, but that isn't going to happen.. Oh well, it's rolling just like it is!

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

Super nice Blazer!
Your body shop guy did a really nice job with the repair and color matching the paint you can't even tell there was a repair which is quite the testament to his skill.
After seeing the quality of his work I would have him do the rest of the rust repair because he is obviously skilled at subtlety.

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

Thanks. I haven't done anything to it since Cruisin' the Coast last month. I have been working a lot to re-coop some money that has been spent getting it ready.

I have been driving it every chance that I get and will be taking it to a show this weekend. After that, I will swap the engine and trans from my other truck into the Blazer to make it easier for my wife to drive it. Hopefully, the drivetrain and complete interior redo will be completed by March for the Spring Goodguys show in Texas.

Sounds like a good plan. What's the motor/tranny in the other truck?

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

Just a little 350 with a 700R4. I want to keep it stock-ish looking under the hood, so no LS for this one. My wife has neck and shoulder problems and the SM465 causes her to hurt if she drives it too much. I believe I will use a black trans mount shifter to keep the 4-speed look though, I may even leave the clutch pedal and use the 4-speed knob to throw people off a bit.

I like the plan. The tall shifter in factory 4 speed shifter location seals the deal for me.

Looking good. I'd like to fix my rockers and I have one cab mount that is starting to go.

Have you started the motor swap.?

I have all of the parts to build the motor, just haven't had the time to put it together yet. I did just get my old rusty headers blasted and painted with POR-15 High Temp Manifold Grey though.
