Blazer Build... Done!
Just got done with the build a couple a months ago, so i figured i'd post up some pics and see what yall've gotta say.
2 blazers turnt into one! My father and I did the whole restoration ourselves - only thing it had to leave the barn for was for exhaust and mounting/balancing tires ofcourse. Put a new floor in it front and back, new bedsides(yeah... a bitch to blend), sandblasted the frame... ya da da da da theres always more to do than say ya know how that goes! lol I wish i would have kept better track of the build and took more pictures but hey oh well... i will on the next one...Its mostly a road and silver lake truck.
6 inch all suspension
pretty cool sound system
Hope ya enjoy
onto the pictures!
without the top... or gas door lol
Up at the top of test
And my favorite... me and my old man:p

Yeah unfortunately the motor is an old and tired sb 350... once that goes we may opt to a salvaged 5.3 from a newer chevy truck or suburban because you can pick them up cheap and they'll give ya some go!
Here are some pictures that i took during the tear down... They suck because they're on my old phone... sorry:
From the back looking forward
Did this to spray undercoating on the bottom of the cab
annnd some paint
During the stage just after paint
Only thing i wish we did different was do an older year so that the top would come all of the way off... the rust would have probably been the same lol
Also, like i mentioned in the first post, we did buy another old blazer for the dash, back window, and other accessories.

Sweet lookin rig!
Mine is still in progress. I kinda did the opposite of you, drivetrain performance first, soon the cosmetic stuff will come.
And Idk what that "done" thing in your title means....
And you need more pics!!!
