Discussion in '2wd Suburban, Blazer and Jimmy' started by Mr Clean, Sep 19, 2010.
Here are a few pics of my total frame off project. The Things I have planned for this.
Hey that's a 2WD! You gonna tub it/drop it/BBC it???
YES!!!!!!! shaved everything, suicide the doors and hood, 4" cal hood, one piece windows, custom center console, and dash. Ford 9" rear, 700r4 trans. Disc brakes all the way around. 4" drop in the front, and 6" in the rear. Not sure on the wheels yet, but I'm thinking real hard about Torq thrusts, 17s in the rear, and 16 up front.
not a bad looking blazer but I'd rather have a 2wd short bed truck then a long bed, blazer or 4x4 really, dunno though I'd take a 4x4 short bed too, or a long bed to cut down to short lol.
That blazer is going to look sick!! I love old square body blazers!!
so which is it 81 or 82?
GreaseDog...It's an 82
You dirty, rotten, bastard. I want one!
So, is that considered a C5?
Jaymez... You are really going to be pissed, when you find out I drove it home 60 miles for a $1000.00, the trans went into my short bed, and the motor went into my soon to be daily driver. I think I read some where it is a C-5, I thought it was a C-10 like the truck, but a buddy of mine showed me in a book, or a mag. the K-5 was 4WD, the C-5 is 2WD. So all I can say is "GOOD LUCK ON FINDING ONE", because you ain't getting mine. lol
$1000???? Ok, that's it!!!! Someone throw this guy off the forum!!!!
Up Date....... I was out on a location today talking with one of Chevrons Big Wigs, and I was telling him about my Blazer and what I'm planning too do to it. He tells me when we leave, I need to come over to his house to get something I may want or need. I've work with the guy for about 6 years on and off, top shelf guy, so I go to his house (his wife looks a little pissed off I just pulled a truck and pup up in her driveway) He takes me to his shop, and there sits a 70 2WD Blazer (perfect would be an understatement). He goes on to tell me, him and his son were going to build an 85 Suburban, but his son got into the mini trucks, he sold the Suburban, and was cleaning out his other shop, and found a set of front doors with power windows, locks the whole nine yards, that he can't use. I asked him how much did he want for them, (because finding a great set of doors here in Texas is like finding Hens teeth). He looked at me and said if you need them, take them and get them out of here. A outstanding set of doors for the right price FREE!!!!!!!!
The Chevy gods blessed me today
Ok, so first you buy a blazer that is in great shape for $1000 and NOW you fall bass ackwards into a set of free doors?? Will someone who lives close to Mr Clean go over his house and kick him in the nuts??
Ha ha, I guess the Chevy gods are looking out for you. Wow, what a deal so far! I look forward on seeing this build.
In all seriousness, good job on finding the great deals! I look forward to seeing thing get built up. That thing is going to look wicked...
