new 72 Blazer 4x4

hey fellas
just bought a well restored 72 blazer. needs several bits and I've been to many sites. as is the case these days, theres too many choices. would some of you give your suggestions for the best retailers for:

rear view mirror, sun visors.
rear chrome for tail gate.
carpet, rugs, bed liners.

and various brands that you all prefer once i get there.

ill post some pictures once i drive her home.

thanks,

Mmo

Re: new 72 Blazer 4x4

Welcome to the board. I'm not much help, as I'm still in the build stage, but there are a lot of guys on here with a great deal of experience. They'll chime in soon.

Re: new 72 Blazer 4x4

Definitely the supporting vendors page on here. I will add though I see you are in Toronto. I'm west of you outside Waterloo with a 72 Blazer and there is a couple of other members east of you with first generation Blazers also.

Being you live in Ontario the best vendor in your area is Bill's Truck Shop in Courtice (Oshawa area).

Pictures of your new truck are must!!!!

Also, feel free to PM me for personal contact information. Always good to keep in contact with locals with similar rigs.
Cheers, Jeff.

Re: new 72 Blazer 4x4

thanks Jeff

im amassing many wish lists! attached some JPEGs.

it wasn't cheap, but once i started mentally driving the thing, I had to have.
454 crate engine, bow tie heads, Edelbrock manifold and carb, 4 speed, 3.08 diffs for cruising, frame off. they are completely rewiring the exterior electrical now, with under the panel wiring already done.
I'm actually trying to get it lowered 2" at the front and 1" in the back. they've a fairly good double wall hard top which will get new seals and a rear door repair. i aim to then have it wrapped once i get that home.

those are fuel 20" rims and all terrain rubber, 34's i think. if anybody wants to buy, i aim to sell and get something slightly more industrial looking.

cheers,
Markus

Re: new 72 Blazer 4x4

Like Jeff said. Give Bill's trucks a call 905-725-3460
He's the best Guy to get parts from, and he'll most likely have it in stock !! :-)

Re: new 72 Blazer 4x4

Nope Keegan, it's not just you. I was clicking on them too and nothing.

Mmo, very good looking Blazer you've got there. Hard to believe you still need to do anything to that thing. It looks fantastic, but I know how it is, there is always something you can do to make it better. Congrats and welcome.
