Smoothride - I realize you have every right to state your opinion in this forum. But to add a post just to state your personal intense dislike of someone elses work or truck is pretty weak in my opinion.
all post are, are opinions

and it is what it is, i feel that way oh well, it shouldnt bother you

Your opinion doesn't bother me at all. In fact it means nothing. Just trying to keep you from appearing like a jerk to the others on this forum next time you just feel like letting your thought fly.

Re: Check Out My New Hood

It's pretty cool to see period after market parts make their way back onto the road.

Re: Check Out My New Hood

I think that hood came off of a blazer up here in Washington. It came up for sale on craigslist a couple years ago. I believe someone bought the hood off of it. WES

Re: Check Out My New Hood

Someone needs to bring that hood back to the aftermarket. I would buy a couple.
Gonna be a nice rig!
Can't wait to see it with paint.

Re: Check Out My New Hood

BillD -

Thanks for the story on the hood. I've often wondered about its origins. By the way, the hood I got (from a seller in Washington as stated above), is by far the nicest quality fiberglass panel I have ever worked with, It is very well reinforced and is completely finished on the underside (no rough gorilla hair edges or surfaces). The fact that it is still around today in usable condition is a testament to its engineering in my opinion. I'm proud to own it.

I would be proud of it too. Don't forget pics when it's painted. I've been watching for one too but not very hopeful after seeing billd's post on how many were actually made and out there...

Bill do you have any more pictures you could share. That white and red one looks so cool with the hood, pin stripes and upper molding. Thank You

Hey cleszkie, did you end up getting the paint finished on this Blazer? Any pics of the finished product?

Chris - Sadly it still exists in the same paint/primer scheme it has been in for the past 5+ years (see my avatar). I have done a ton of other mechanical upgrades over that time, but no paint. I just use it too much and don't want to take it out of service to completely gut it, blow it apart, and send it to paint prison. The upside is that I don't care about scratches and rock chips. The downside is that I look like a homeless person driving it (according to my wife). Some day it will get that paint and all new trim and it will look awesome. Some day.......

Totally understand. At least it's been getting used and not blown apart for years. 👍

Re: Check Out My New Hood

I have seen your Blazer in person and the hood looks great on it. I think it looks better in person than in the photos.
I understand your issues with getting it painted, I just spent a whole year with my 72 suburban doing body work and paint. It came out great, and I am glad I did it, but man that was a long year.

Re: Check Out My New Hood

Cool thread, awesome hood and who would have guessed the original designer of the hood would pop in to educate everyone on its history, and sad short-lived run.

I love this forum.
