Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

The ones from Slick? What size were those? I'd like to have a set of them just to change it up every once in a while, plus I love the look.

They are 15 X 8 but the back tire measures about 10 inches wide, they may be too wide as well.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Well guys, I tried to clean the SPID off and someone had already ripped off the majority of it. No info on this one. But I did find that Reducer works really well but slow at taking paint off without hurting the SPID.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Drove to a little town called LaVernia close to San Antonio this past Saturday, about 3 hours and 15 minutes one way to pick up a really clean hood. The lady parting out the 68 gave me the hood hinges and headlight buckets with trim rings for free. She also said the core support (in nice shape) would be delivered here in H-Town for the low price of $60 bucks, by her!! Hell-of-a-deal!!! Couldn't wait so I slapped the hood on the Blazer.....oh and I pulled the front springs.......

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

After an exciting couple of weeks I finally got back on the Blazer. Got to hang out with Mr. Slosh Tubz himself Mike Losh for a little while at Lone Star Throwdown (got my Slosh Tubz) and met Travis from Pro Performance. The C5 brake kit is awesome! I learned a new skill as well, welding! Love it, this was my first time to mig and it came out pretty nice!! Really looking forward to getting in my Porterbuilt stuff soon too!

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Here are a couple of pics of the Blazer, I was able to tack in the side marker lights and cut the drip rail off and the a-pillars. I purchased my first aftermarket fender, let's see how that goes. I pulled all the springs out to see what it would look like too.

Progress is progress, looking good. I see you're going with the side window delete option, I recall you saying there was gonna be a lot of deleting going on.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Might add this 74 to the herd. Blazers are addicting! The price is right but the 4 hours each way to go get it isn't fun.

Yeah, no doubt! It's the same guy I bought my 72 from and my friend's 73, my brother in law bought a 50 Buick Dyna Flow from him as well. Since I helped him sell all of these he was going to give a great deal on this one.
