Re: PO has me PO'd

They're from Marquese, only come with reflectors, had to modify my sockets to light up

Don't cheap out and get the American billet, they don't fit near as nice as Marquese

Lots of precautions on the label, I plan to use a 3M mask and a fan in the shop.

I haven't applied flame to it yet, just brushed on. You don't want to aerate it by sanding, more of a scraping motion with a sharp tool

Re: PO has me PO'd

Bumper is a 1/8 " in the way of letting the bolt seat

Not wanting to grind bumper, have to try moving bumper or grille guard

Re: PO has me PO'd

Ok fixed my problem, I broke my own rule when assembling parts, start all fasteners and hand tight before using a wrench....

Just need to find the right socket to fit up in there

Re: PO has me PO'd

I got my blazer on a killer deal. I drove it for several years with it in primer. I planned to paint it a couple different times and finally pulled the trigger.

I have one comment on the thread where the roll pan in the back was welded and the tailgate will not come off (no access to the bolts).

The latest gave me quite the scare as I think back. I have been on it pretty hard a few times, even snatching a gear here and there. Super fun.

Pulled the wheels and found 2" spacers and this style of spacer and lug nut has three, and maybe four threads engaged on the wheel studs. (four is a stretch).

Still not complaining, but sometimes I wonder what people are thinking...not thinking....when they build their rides?????

Re: PO has me PO'd

Scott, I agree. My spacers are 1 1/2" and have plenty of threads on the lug nut, if you have 2 inch spacers, you should probably lengthen your wheel studs.

Thanks for posting up, and enjoy your ride

I've always wondered what was done when these trucks were new.

Loose nut on the back side, or well nut?
