Finally got the frame rail modified enough to clear the neck.
Did you take any pics when you did this? I'm gonna have to do the same thing eventually, and I threw out my old tank already...

Finally got the rear wheels. Wasn't sure if I'd ever get my Coys. Customer service is something else.

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Took my best girl to Lowe's yesterday to buy an air compressor. Thought I'd snap some "action" shots while waiting

Got home and started sanding down the top.

Great looking truck. I just unburied mine from a foot of snow and drove it around the countryside for awhile.

Oh nice. Luckily here in California I can still drive around a little in the winter w/out freezing my face off. I like the look of your white body / white top, still debating on whether to paint my top white or black.

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Mine came with a black double wall top and it looked fine. I found the white single wall top and liked it better. In Colorado, the white top worked better temp wise (I suppose...) The extra UV also fades everything there, so I left it white. Now I'm in Northern Michigan and I'm thinking that once I get all the body work done, I may go back all gun metal gray... Too much white around here. I'm getting cabin fever.

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Pulled this stuff out of my 71 CST. The center consol has 4 speakers and in it and two subs. The two amps were under the front seats. Wiring was a cluster f**k from the firewall to the rear bumper. Fixed the intermittent no start and wouldn't turn off issues. Turns on and off with the key like it should now!!

Consol and amps are in the Blazer parts for sale area now.

Horrible wiring job by PO was back feeding voltage from the ACC side of igintion switch causing the engine to run with the key in the off position.

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Po Wiring is not Fun. I had to Go Through and do the same thing with mine. So Many wires going To nowhere and cuts and Splice to half The dash. None of the gauges worked either. Is still like romeomeday require the truck as you have. It would Be much easier than trying to remember all the shortcuts I hadn't to fix and Still rig some places to get a strait looks bE wire Where it Was Supposed to be.

What did you use to paint your console? How about a quick 'this is what I did' post.
