Dash is very cool. Going ultra retro. Maybe you said but what's that out if?

Thank you, it is out of a 1955 Bel Air. Had to be stretched 9.5 inches, but it fits.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Did you figure out what to do with the cowl along the bottom of the windshield? I've been curious for a while what you decided. This thing is incredible!

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Roadster cowl customization in 5 easy steps!!! I really hope this helps someone out!

Mark where your cowl should be cut to match the A-pillar.

Views: 616

First the back portion of the cowl was cut off and relief cuts where made from the back toward the front. I took out about 1.25" at the rear and none across the center of the cowl. I cut out excess metal until both pieces butted together nicely. This gives you a flatter surface than stock.

I cut out the fresh air vents on the cowl and replaced it with 18 gauge metal. I made the metal concave to match the cowl then used a shrinker/stretcher to get it to bend properly to match the compound curve from side to side.

I worked a little short hair fiberglass into the cuts then went over that with some trusty bondo to get it to look halfway decent.

After a small amount of sanding I got it very close but still feel a small dip where the inside relief cut was made. A little more pookie on it, and it should be good! For the record, I'm not a bodyman!!

Excuse all the junk in the background. Just wanted to post a picture showing the shaved cowl. It makes the whole truck look different.

I have been working to get the dash, door, fender, body and custom sail panel on the door aligned. This is turning into a hassle but it will be worth it in the end.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

I have not done much to the Blazer lately, but that is about to change!! This is the concept I have in mind and if it flows together it may be what happens. I am going for the old Corvette look. Thoughts?

This is the reason my Blazer has not been getting much attention. I bought this little 78 GMC and put some time in on it. She is cool, just not old enough.
