Fishing stuff/bike parts for Blazer help in California.

Discussion in '1969-1972 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Feb 20, 2003.

    I"m in the middle of restoring a 71 K5. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in trading work for High end Fishing Gear (fly or conventional) Bikes/bikeparts (Mountain bikes or Road) R/C cars or car parts...

    thanks,Forrest

    Hey welcome dude. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    Where exactly are you located?
    There are quite a few of us in the bay area and an even larger group throughout cali.
    You can check out:
    www.norcalbigdawgs.net
    where we started a wheelin' club with all the people we met through ck5.

    It depends on what exactly you mean by needing help restoring your blazer, but there are a lot of us with different skills. Are you talking replacing body parts, swapping or rebuilding drivetrain parts, what?
    I've replaced or rebuilt lots of the things on my first gen K/5, not much left. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Anyways, you've found a great site to help you with whatever you're planning to do with your K/5. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Just do a keyword search and you'd be suprised what you can dig up here. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    In what part of the Bay Area are you located? I'm smack in the middle of the Peninsula and I'm willing to help with some work or whatever.
     
  4. Ryan, thanks a ton for your post! It really makes me feel good that there are others in the Bay that are doing restorations on K5's!! Thanks for the welcome! I need to replace the rockers, sand or sand blast a bunch of rust on the frame and some parts of the body. I think the motor needs to be rebuilt. The tranny seems to be ok. I would like to get it painted and rhino coat the interior. Anyway, thank you for responding, I hope to meet you someday!

    Thanks,forrest
     
  5. Wow! Thank you very much Steve. I live in Pleasant Hill but my truck is in Lafayette. I actually work in San Mateo 3 days a week! Mon.-Wed. Thanks a ton for the offer! Please let me know what days would be good for you!!!!! I will pay for your transportation costs or if you want me to drive it down, that is possible too!

    Thanks,forrest

  9. Thanks again for responding Steve... here is what I need done:

    1) need to get rid of the rust under my rockers

    2) sand the frame, shackles and any other part of the undercarrige for painting.

    3) get the body and interior ready for paint and rhino coat

    4) drain all fluids, check tranny, motor, diffs etc.
