Great progress! You might need that A/C to work when you take the Blazer out on its first drive come Spring!

Hey Pete...do my eyes deceive me, or is that not 61 Dodge that we saw at Mild to Wild 5 years ago in your K20 build? I sure hope they're done!!!

Re: 1972 Medium Blue Highlander Blazer Resto

Quick update. Progress continues. The blazer will move and stop under its own power now. The single wall top was stripped, has had the few cracks repaired and is on deck to be painted this week. The front fenders will be buffed then trim and interior will be installed.

Bucket and rear seats have been rebuilt. The front bucket driver and rear pass tracks were black phosphate coated with the bolts per OEM and the other brackets and hinges powder coated as these seemed to be painted originally. Foam is USA made - thanks Wes.

I assembled the inner outer grill today both pieces NOS with NOS bow tie and NOS hood bumpers and head light bezels.

Brad you have the sharpest eye! Indeed that is the same dodge truck but was back briefly only to update some front suspension components. The owner has been driving and enjoying that truck for a while.

Re: 1972 Medium Blue Highlander Blazer Resto

Added these NOS accessory steps - correct for first gen with instructions dated 1970 - for my wife. These were added in a manner such that they can be unbolted when desired. Without these my wife would grab ahold of the gb door to scramble inside.

This is even cooler than the Delco air shocks on the K20!!! Thanks for the inspiration Deadhead!

Re: 1972 Medium Blue Highlander Blazer Resto

Thanks again guys. Getting so close. There was a short traced to the tilt column that's fixed. The radius of the tailgate handle is tight such that it contacts the upper middle trim - odd but something that shimming may easily fix. Also having trouble getting the clips for the bright trim on the tailgate to bite and hold to the gate but we are going to try clips from another source.

Lol! I still have this set up in the box. I am tempted to use this on the blazer if I get any sag with a rear load. I'm pleased the steps are removable and a real GM accessory. Was tempted to add front bumper guards but held back given these steps are present: want to avoid too many bolt-on items.

I'm really liking the look of the rally wheels.
