Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Just a little of everything.... It's like falling down a squirrel hole backward without my old man reading (shop) glasses...

Sorry that the photo is sideways, i guess i had my phone the wrong way, but I'll get that figured out too.
I had a tough time with that color. This is close, but "brighter"

Looks great.

Hey, I worked that scuff out of the K 20 front cap. I was pretty proud of my handy work.

Thanks

That's really cool. Has me thinking about my butchered dash(s) and how to repair.

Nice project, like to see more. Much more involved than mine on the stock frame. I did not want to cut fenders to much and am limited. Maybe think about a build thread in the 4x4 section or main build section. BTW your pics are really big. If you are hosting off site, maybe downsize a bit for easier viewing.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the feedback. I was struggling to get the photo down to a reasonable size without rehosting them for this site, but looks like I don't have a choice.

Let's try it again from PhotoBucket this time: (Using "Medium" setting)

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Swapped carbs on mine - from a 750 Edelbrock to a 600 Holley.

Word of warning - those $15 mechanical fuel pumps put out a lot more that the 5-7 psi recommended. Mine is overpowering the system and flooding the engine something terrible. Now I need to install a regulator...

Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

It was delivered Friday from CA to MA.

I replaced the vent windows with some from Roger Koop that I was going to use on my 2 wheel drive Blazer, I ordered a pair of replacements.

I replaced the sweeps and fuzzies, I can never get them perfectly straight.

Replaced all the locks with a set from Leon including the glove box lock.

And I took the top off today, outside by myself!

\

The Blazer as it should be!
