Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

Thanks Doug, I think these are the only full-length SBC headers that don't hang way below the frame and still allow you to keep your mechanical clutch linkage.

Looks like I'll be picking up my back seat while y'all are having the Wire & Fire party (still wish I could make it). I got this picture in a text today. I'll FINALLY have a matching back seat! Plus it'll have room for bigger tubs. Now when a buddy's son and his girlfriend have to drive me home after drinking too much, I won't have to sit on the floor of my own Blazer.

Very nice. What’s the plan for the tubs?

Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

Cut = Custom!

I'm picking up the seat this weekend, and I have multiple sets of tubs laying around. I'll take 2 sets and make one set approx. 1.5" wider than stock. I wanted to wait until the seat was back and mounted so that I can get an accurate measurement on how wide I can go. I'd be really embarrassed if I widened the tubs and then they didn't fit with the seat in there.

Once they are done, I know a painter that can make them match.

Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

I did similar modifications to my 48 Suburban. I widened the wheel tubs and I raised them a couple inches to allow me to layout on 22's. This also effected the placement of my 3rd row seat. I did something very similar to yours. I took 2 3/4" out of the center and cut the seat springs to match. It was a lot of work. I love the look of your blazer, from the wheels to the stance and everything...Looks great man.

Thanks Marc! I've been following your build also since an AD burb is on my short list of vehicles to own.

Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

For those of you that haven't voted yet for TOTM, this month's theme is for Blazers. There are a ton of really nice Blazers in there, so go pick your favorite and vote!

I'm not saying for you to vote for my Blazer, but if it is your favorite, then by all means!

Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

It's been a while since I have worked on the Blazer, but today I got my filler plates from Full Custom Fab. They are real nice pieces. They are thick metal and were packed extremely well to avoid shipping damage. Now, I just need to get them painted and installed.

Those do look nice, wish I’d thought of it. This firewall has really slowed me down...

Those look awesome! Zac at FCF does a killer job. Just installed his seat lowering brackets in my 68 shorty.

Yeah well, I wish I had thought of what you did to the valve covers...

Those look good too. I would have ordered those, but I have buckets.

Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

After looking for specs on your wheel set-up, I went back and got caught up on everything you're doing to the blazer. Man, it's so sweet! Can't wait to see it in person in the future. I'm going to do a better job of staying plugged in on it. Keep bringing the updates!

Re: Ratchet's Blazer - 1970 2wd with Original paint

If I have time before HRPT, yes. Although my wife and friends are trying to get me to leave it as it is until I can get the TKO. I am focusing on getting my first home-built exhaust done and A/C before anything else though. The A/C has taken a nasty turn since I decided that I don't want hoses coming out of the firewall anymore... I can't seem to do anything the easy way.
