    The blazerlow project

    Figured Iíd start a thread on my í83 2 door blazer after all these years. Iíve owned it since High school back in 2000. It already had a 400 S.B.C with a TH350 and was static lowered with heated coils and bad shocks.

    Drove it like that for a while, tore down the suspension and replaced shocks and springs and started some body mods and drove it like that for a while again. All ugly and primer bombed in multiple colors. Then decided to tear it down again and go for bags and a body drop with 20ís.

    Here are a ton of pics.


    This is how I bought it, and the 72 Blazer was also mine. Itís been sold since.

    Fabbing all new body mounts and floor panels because the original stuff was rusted out.









    rolled it outside for some photos one day. Only has body mounts and no floor or firewall in these pics






    the other blazer was my daily driver for a couple years

    I will have a couple access panels to get at the bags, compressors, and tanks that will all be under the floor.

    Still need to make the access panels, trans and driveshaft tunnel and firewall.

    I’m running a manual steering rack with an electra steer electric power steering unit.

    Lots of work left to do.

    I started my bag and body drop build back in 07. But I haven't worked on it the whole time of course. I were able to work on it on a daily basis it's probably a few months worth of work.

    Nice work ! Lookin' good. I'll admit the slammed thing isn't really my kind of thing, but your interior work and frame work looks good. Nice designs on customs stuff too. All that with a 400 sbc, ought to be interesting. Can't wait to see it done and running.

    BTW, I would have loved to bought that 72 Blazer from you. A man that taught me a lot about auto mechanics, was a Chevrolet Parts Manager at a local dealership, and drove a Blazer like that one, except it had an old style rally wheel with center caps and beauty rings. His was a 350 4 speed and always ran smooth, and sounded great. He also had a 1967 Camaro RS/SS 396, wood grain steering wheel, hide-a-way headlights, 375 hp 4 speed 12 bolt 4:11 posi, all factory original. His brother ended up with the Camaro and the son got the Blazer.
