Default V8 Toyota project

i was in the middle of trying round up parts for by K5 build when i ended up with this Toy so out with the Blazer, this is my new project! it's been on fire so i'm getting it put back together. it runs great though and sounds pretty good but it will sound a lot better when i get Flowmasters on it.










it has a 383 stroker, th350 trans with a np203 transfer with a fixed yoke.







here are my plans...

bob the rear

1 tons

cage, exo?

purely functional interior

rear mount radiator

gotta have some flex too

fab up bumpers and get my winch mounted

thanks guys. all of the under hood wiring and some of the dash wiring was burned so they cut the harness out. dash just has a small burn spot on it but if i can get my hands on some sheet metal and a brake i'm going to make a simple dash and mount my new gauges and switches in it.
i am looking for Dana 60's for it at the moment as well.

i got a little more done on it the past couple of days, would have gotten a little farther along but i spent all day yesterday working on the Blazer.

fuel lines replaced and engine bay painted..






working on straightening the inner fender, just trying to get it close enough to mount a new fender..








removed the drivers side fender to see if the newer style dog house will work but it's not even close. i can get the grill and bumper to work with a little rigging..



i cut the shock boots off and removed some unneeded (and burnt) wiring..




i'm going to try to find alternator mounting brackets this week for the short style water pump and get a temporary radiator and fan mounted. i also need to find a pass fender and hood.
