It's currently just cut out, but yes you definitely have to cut/raise it. Going to have a raised floor on it soon.

Yep. For the big Porterbuilt notch and to fit the fuel tank. The framing in the back is just there to stabilize it while I work on getting it done correctly.

Amazing work on the tailgate! Your brother is very talented. Did he lazier cut the letters and then form the tailgate to them? I would love to see more pictures of the work!

I'll have to look for more photos of when it was put together, but this one was taken after the initial primer... was still wet at the time.

Re: My '71 2WD Blazer K/5

A few more photos... insulation by Quiet Ride Solutions and rubbers by Precision and the fellas over at Something Sik Customs have been doing most (or all lol) of the work lately to help speed up the process and get it done... oh, yea... also documenting the bigger parts of the build.

Re: My '71 2WD Blazer K/5

It's taking shape... I wrapped one side this weekend with 3M Gloss White Aluminium (the top silver half). Beginning to look a bit more like the rendering, only a couple of weeks left.
