Re: Classic Heartbeat 69-72 Blazer Body Mount Kit.....

I thought the floor bolts were tacked. The rear bed bolts had a washer that contoured the bed shape.

Only the front-most two hex head (non-carriage) bolts in the cab are tack welded. IIRC only the bolts at the rear xmember have the washers depicted.

Re: Classic Heartbeat 69-72 Blazer Body Mount Kit.....

I redid a set recently on my 72 Blazer and only the fronts were tacked but maybe there are variations. For those getting ready to redo I'd suggest grinding and/drilling out the carriage bolt heads at the floor pan then pounding the threaded shafts out from above.

Re: Classic Heartbeat 69-72 Blazer Body Mount Kit.....

I am not sure witch ones tack welded and witch ones did not. All the Blazers I have replaced the body mounts on all body and bed bolts were tack welded. It would be a simple thing to do when installing the new ones too. I can see your point Pete. However unless I can find a wholesale supplier for the offset washers would raise the price of the kit $15.00 or $20.00 WES

Re: Classic Heartbeat 69-72 Blazer Body Mount Kit.....

LMC's kit only has 4 offset washers in it. Maybe I should offer that as a $10.00 option... Then if you don't want them you don't have to buy them. WES

Re: Classic Heartbeat 69-72 Blazer Body Mount Kit.....

Kind of looks like we will getting enough parts to make 200 kits right now. Looking like price will be around $240.00 or $250.00. I couldn't get to LMCs price of $200.00. I just can't purchase in the quantities that is needed to get there. Hardware companies were talking in the 100,000 pieces to get a brake large enough to do so. There just isn't any way I can afford to do that. We will look into it again once we sell most of the inventory we will have. I think the 40 or so bucks is well worth it when you consider the cushions will not go bad in our kits. I am hoping to have enough stuff here to be able to ship before Christmas, but I must say that may be a little optimistic because some parts are having to be made custom for my kit. If you would like to pre-order I am excepting orders now. We do not charge credit cards before the kit will ship. It is just a way that you can be among the first to get one. So there you have it. I did what I could for now and we will have 200 excellent quality kits anyway. Contact me either by email or phone call if you would like to pre-order a kit. WES

Re: Classic Heartbeat 69-72 Blazer Body Mount Kit.....

This is how the body mounts will be packaged. I am including a body mount position diagram to make it easy to locate where each individual kit mounts. Kind of rudimentary but should work. Thoughts anyone? WES

By the way, I am assembling kits to ship out now.

Re: Classic Heartbeat 69-72 Blazer Body Mount Kit.....

I do not want to sound like I am pushing sales, but I do want to remind people that we have enough to do 200 kits and they will be gone. I haven't even gotten an estimate on the cost for new tooling yet. No timeline or anything. The sale of these kits will help decide once the estimates come in. There is a strong possibility that it may be a cost that I can not afford. Anyway just a thought for you guys. WES
