    I’m not doing a full grown resto or anything like that. Just fixed up the top and painted it with a roller - made for a nice textured gloss white finish. Now my original plan was to flatten some gloss black and spray the top and body. Interior will be gloss white with gray seats, dash pad, and door panels. After seeing the top I’m thinking now about leaving it white prepping the body and having a cheapie paint job sprayed on it factory “baby poop yellow”.
    Either way I’ll get the back windows very dark tinted.

    So question is your opinion: semi-gloss black Stealth Blazer or original white over baby poop yellow?

    '72 Blazer mostly stock original "Baby Poop" yellow color

    This may help you decide. I am not a salesman for this web site but he has good deals on paint that would be great for Blazers and such. The total cost delivered to you door for a gallon of paint, reducer and hardner is 79 bucks!!!

    No, but I have some on the way for my Harley tanks and my 86 Jaguar. If it works okay I will bless my Blazer with a fresh coat of hugger orange.
