Re: My winter project

Thanks, I like the color combo also, I thought it was a repaint when I looked it over. I didn't think that was a color option for blazers.

Re: My winter project

Well the interior is all out, seats, carpet, sides panels and I have a little rust....
Windshield head is gone, has anyone tried to modify one from a truck cab?

Thanks

Re: My winter project

I've never seen a truck header used but they do reproduce it now. Check out gmc Paul's. I didn't know they had a white black combo either. I would love to have that top.

Re: My winter project

I know now why some blazers don't get finished or put back together the right way. I'm looking at replacement panels and parts well over 2k and no labor. humm.. my bean counter might put a slow down on things. but I have one!!!!

Re: My winter project

Your best bet is to keep it running and driving for now. Then you can slowly pick at needed repairs and enjoy it, they are still fun even if they are not perfect.

Re: My winter project

Thanks guys. I have tons of things the blazer needs before rally wheels but it helps me see through the ugly.

I dropped the gas tank to empty the bad fuel. inside the tank looks real good so no more bottle feeding. one step closer.

Re: My winter project

I separated the top form the body and looks to be the first time in 40 plus years. doors, hood, and tailgate close great. lucky me I think.

Re: My winter project

Again I'm putting the cart in front of the horse and no way ready to mount a roll bar but couldn't pass for the price. I like the way this type of bar fits top on and off.

Re: My winter project

I plan to use the original interior door panels that had fabric glued to them. The fabric came off pretty easy but the old upholstery glue not so. I scraped with the stuff you can get at the hardware store and plastic putty knife and it's kinda working. Wish I had the picture of the black stuff glued over the wood grain.

Re: My winter project

You know, get yourself a lawn chair and you have a driver there...

It looks like a good project. I'm curious how the rust gets going in the center of the header. That seems like an odd place.

Re: My winter project

Have you tried 3M adhesive remover on that glue?

My head hits the top with a lawn chair but a five gallon bucket and a little balance I can move it around some. As far as the rust in windshield header I think the cans of spray foam may have contributed to some that, I also had home insulation stuffed in the bedsides which helped with the rust around the wheel wells and floors.

Re: My winter project

I sprayed the door panels with a plastic coating. What do you think just trim or wood insert.

I'm almost ready for the new body mounts, the old ones don't give up easy.
