    Does anyone here know where I can get an outer grill /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif shell and inner plastic for a 1971 blazer? Or maybe someone knows what other years will bolt in?

    You can put a 69-70 grill in place if you like the looks better, it will move your turn signals out of the bumper and into the grill so you would need a new bumper. You can also replace the hole front clip from a 67-68 truck and have very unique look.

    How hard is the installation for bolting up a 67-68 front clip? Can you get any pics from anyone who's done this? Sound pretty interesting!

    I don't have any picks, but the installation is faily simple. A 68 front has side marker lites so it would be prefered and a 71-72 have there turn signals in the bumper so you have to get a new bumper, but other than that its the same as the 69-72 for bolt holes. You remove the cowl cover, the bolts at the back of the fenders,radiator,radiator support bolts, bolts at back of inner fenders, wiring at the fire wall connection and have a buddy help you lift it off. I might have forgot something , but it's pretty simple if you can find a 68 truck to get a hole clip from.
