    Help with \'74 Consmetic Fix up

    I've got a '74 Blazer in Denver and I am looking for a shadetree or a reasonable shop that can help me pretty up my Blazer. Interior stuff like seats, over the shoulder seatbelts, dash. Plus a little body work and a paint job.

    If you want to buy the parts (which will save you $$) and do it yourself (interior stuff is easy), try these links -
    http://www.cheyennepickup.com

    There are others, but these are the two that have a LOT of stuff...........did my whole interior with Cheyenne Pickup stuff (except for the Flofit seats, got them from Seat Source in Riverside, CA). You can see the interior project on my site - click on the link.

    Before you sink any money into the interrior you need to check the floors. the 69-76 are VERY prone to rusted out floors and cab suports. GM didn't even pain the inside of the boxes under the floor and crud get slung into them off the tires and just rots them out. Unlike trucks, floors for K5's that old are hard to come by. The only place I found them is the dealer. they found part numbers that looked like were good. Price was $450 each side. That inluced a complet floor half with cab suport inner suport rail inner rocker assembled. You need to have the truck fully inspected and a price quote for the rust repair before you decide to do any other work. you may find you got a big ticket repair if you can't do it yourself.
    hit the link below to my site for some pictures of how bad the floors can be and how much I had to cut out to fix my 75.
