I have a '76 blazer but really like the full convertible top and the late 60's and early 70's body style but have rebuilt the entire drivetrain and suspension on my '76 but the '76 is in need of some body work and kinda want to get a feel for thing before i start cutting sh*t up...if somebody does know or even if they dont if it will work or not, do youknow where i can get a rust free tub for the blazer? i can use the interior in my '76.. it's kick ass.. it's the dark tan with all wood vineer trim and is absolutely mint..the truck now is pumpkin orange with the white stripe down the side and on top..beefed up 350 with t350 trans, np203 case with 2x4 conversion and dana44 with 4:10 gears, 6" suspension lift, steering stabilizers and 35" bfg's..any help would be greatly appreciated..thanx

    I read about how people custom attach a body to a mid 70's frame. The body would be a 50's-60's. So it should work with some work
