    since im waiting for a new tranny, i thought it would be a good time to get all the new floor panels i have in the garage welded into the blazer. i have a new tailpan, the 2 rear sections, rocker panels in and outer and innner fender wells.

    ill also throw the ord 1" zero rates and the new poly body mounts in at this time.

    i only have the front section done taked=n out so far. wanted to get some input on how bad you guys think it is,


    where the seatbelts attatch, what is the best way to fix that? i hAVE A SHEET METAL SHOP DOWN THE BLOCK FROM ME FOR ANYTHING I MIGHT NEED.


    in the third picture, thewre is a black wire that is cut. anyone know what it is? it runs to the back somewhere.


    thanks

    doood, don't sweat it... We'll bang that out like nothing... I'm betting you got some rot under that carpet where it goes vertical up to the bed too.. they're notorious there because the wheels hammer that spot..

    either way, no big, I've got scrap sheetmetal to cut up for any patches we need that you don't have in new sheetmetal... your gonna have to cover some supplies like weldthru primer, grinding discs, seam sealer, etc, but I can pick them up for ya...

    I'm telling ya, the biggest issue will be whether the neighbors call the cops... hope you got some shooters muffs! it'll be devestatingly loud...

    do you have the body mount kit? perfect time for it since we'll be doing the tailpan too...

    I think it's for the rear dome light, but I'm not positive...

    Can't see your picture but if it has an inline fuse, then it's probably something the p.o. installed.

    Dome light wires are generally white and orange.

    Yep, We have a winner !!!!


    Mines just as bad if not worse than yours. Your rockers look like they need help to. I've been searching for that same seatbelt mounting spot, nobody makes it. I think it's just something that's got to be fabbed. Keep posting pics for us so we can learn more about bodywork.
