    hello everyone im new here. I recently purchased a 70 blazer off of ebay for 750.00. I could not pass it up, ive always wanted a 1st gen blazer. Anyway, i dont know that much about restoring a vehicle; where could i find some literature or cd-rom to aid me. Just to let yall know i probably be asking alot of annoying questions in the near future so bear with me.

    Membership priveleges will allow you to post in the "Body Shop" forum, which is all about restoration, and enable you to search more literature than your eyes and brain can come close to handling. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I'm 1 of the 2 mods in the body shop and I am happy to answer any resto. Q you have. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    also check out www.67-72chevytrucks.com
    a good site, not as much 4x4 oriented as this one, but a lot of good basic things to be found there.
    good luck!

    welcome.. texmex!

    I have a 72 Blazer that is fairly well built for wheelin'; feel free to ask any questions that you may have.

    Do you plan on wheelin' it or restoring it to origional?

    Mine has a 70 grill, and many people ask if it is a 70. I will be glad to swap grills if you would rather have the one for your year. Otherwise, I don't plan on doing much with my grill, and neither should you.

    $750.00 is a steel if the truck is worth a dam.

    later

    Welcome. I've got a '69 that has been modified and a stock, 100% rust free '72. Definately, post some pictures when you can. You'll need to have them hosted someplace else or get a paying membership and upload them to the member's gallery.

    Definately check out the other board atho posted, especially if you plan to restore you truck to stock or somewhat stock. You'll find a lot of parts there.

    If you post the VIN, we can tell you what year your truck is.
