Re: My winter project

I found out that truck bed liner will come off the the hatch with a little heat, prying and pulling but fairly easy to remove. I was also surprised the hatch was in pretty good shape.

Re: My winter project

Well after rolling around on my back for quite some time its finely time to paint the under side of the tub and frame, scraping, grinding and sanding is tough duty. I plan to use a rolled satin black on the underside of tub and can spray the frame. I put new seals in these and ready to go back in.

Re: My winter project

Thank you, and glad it helped. No particular reason that I recall, but I think would look nice as well.

Re: My winter project

I have the engine back from the machine shop and will to start cleaning the outside stuff for some paint. I did stumble on this steering wheel and shiftier to replace the custom wheel and late model shiftier that I have now.

Re: My winter project

Starting to put these back where they go. I'll clean the outside engine for some paint and I'll be ready for the next move.

Re: My winter project

I've started some motor assembly and have a question, the exhaust manifold is very close to the starter and previous exhaust shop made it work by sizing the pipe to fit around the starter, should I change to different manifold before I break in.
Thanks 7D2N

Your Blazer would have come with straight dump manifolds. I believe the correct casting for 1972 is 3989036

Re: My winter project

Thanks Jack B, the engine is not original to the blazer but 1970 block. I'll look for some straight down type.
thanks again, 7D2N
