Re: Pictures of 1969 Blazer

Thanks for the support. Good to know there is a brotherhood out there that cares for these vehicles. Overall the panels turned out very nice and they were the only company that would even try to duplicate the originals.Hopefully the Blazer will be done in 2 months. Or maybe,my luck the first snowfall!

Re: Pictures of 1969 Blazer

These trucks are never done done. Lol. There's always something to do to them. I'm just happy to get mine to a point where it's drivable and looks halfway decent again. Don't have a ton of money or time so Mine was down and not driven for almost 6 years.

Re: Pictures of 1969 Blazer

After 21/2 years and waiting patiently. My Blazer is finished! Super happy with the end result and want to THANK EVERYONE on this forum for all their advice, answering questions , and many kindnesses.This Forum along with the restoration shop really made this possible. I was really lucky to have purchased a Blazer that was pretty original and in good condition. I was also very fortunate to find this site where I could find all the NOS/ OEM replacement parts. My main goal in this build was to return it back to original. I did make a couple changes ( updated wiring, cup holder console, dual exhaust, and grill insert from a 1970). I was able to snap a couple pictures. By the way I'm still in need for those damn side Reflectors in Amber and in Red, NOS of course. Thank You

Re: Pictures of 1969 Blazer

Thanks Brian. Just happy it's finally done. I was very happy you had a bunch of items I needed and lived close. I'm glad you were able to find your Jimmy. Look forward to meeting up with you to see your new/old ride!!!
