    there was a yellow mid 80's chevy truck that had this done to it in one of the 4x4 mags awhile back. I don't remember which mag or when!

    i saw that truck at the 4xFunfest at sandwhich il. back in sept of 97...it made the cover a few months later...check about jan of 98 4wheel and off road....not sure about the first gen. blazers, but on his he said that the wires all matched it just had to be seriously molded, cut and modified since the windsheild is fairly flat compared to a 90-somethings curved glass....it looked good as hell, he even made it into an extended cab by using a section of a blazer....its a big yellow chevy with a green splash type graphic going from the bottom of the front wheels to the bed at an angle--so you know what to look for.....

    I had seen a mid 90's ford truck with a complete Lincoln Mark eight dash and seats. Although not a k5 it was trick none the less....
