Craneboy, I got the kit from LMC and used the assembly manual for help. This is how they turned out.

Re: My winter project

Those things are kind of a pain to install.

Re: My winter project

I found seat support patches from a truck to use. The floor mounting braces look close but the mounting holes are a bit different, I need to cut the blazer floor and move the braces to the new patches.

Re: My winter project

You are getting in the fun part of the build. Once you have the mechanical in good enough shape to drive it - you can repair the cosmetic and rust as you go.

Nice work so far!

Re: My winter project

Now the front is off and I can see what I'm working with, the sway bar and these brackets are going. I plan to get a stock look with an minor lift. Anyone know if this harness for the smog pump.

Thanks

Re: My winter project

I got the windshield header today. I'm checking measurements and it looks pretty good so far and a lot better than what I have now.

Re: My winter project

Cool - new parts - will be watching you work with the header piece - needed it in the past and sold the truck before that part came out.

Some light reading for another member who used the same parts and found some challenges using them.

Not sure if the parts have changed any since that post is from 2015.

Keep us posted on your progress with the new header pieces.

Re: My winter project

I do not believe the smog pump had any electric hookup. I also believe that Morgan county is smog exempt for your truck. Am I wrong on that?

I'm not sure if you saw my thread on my experience with installing one of these but bolt up your visors to make sure everything lines up, I had to move some of the nut serts a significant amount to have the visors sit right.

Tom the blazer was smog equipped, just trying to figure out what and where the harness went. I think I have the AC harness checked out.

Thanks

69-72 I checked your thread many times before I went this route and thank you. I think this is my best way to go. I have been carefully checking measurements on my original and I put the visors supports on with bolts and holes seem to be spot on. Then again it's just 5 parts out of the box right now.

Re: My winter project

Cutting the windshield frame off is a BIG leap of faith when you first do it. But once you have it repaired you will feel great. I nearly crapped myself when I stepped back after cutting mine off. But after grafting the donor frame back on, I felt a great boost of confidence.

It went better than I was expected, I knew where the new parts were suppose to be but just a little scary to start chopping.

Re: My winter project

Finished the windshield header and the top is bolted down to start floor work. I will say it's a bit time consuming but will work great.
