I am new to this forum and getting a lot of interesting information but am into the restore of my own 1970 Blazer, and having a great time! I do have some questions but my questions may seem silly to most of you as this is my first restore project but one that I ahve always dreamed of and worked toward. I have a real nice clean 2 owner 1970 plain jane blazer that has 56k miles on it, ran great but needed some rust work and paint as the trtuck sat outside for 35 years, just a farm vehicle for southwest Kansas. I de-fanged the truck last week, pulling the engine, tranny and t-case. I started dismantling it this winter and it is almost totally apart, been fun, taking lots of pics so I hope I can get it back togather! Got couple of question, do the seats of 73 blazer have the same frame as the CST seats of 70-72? I want that seat in it, found some 73 seats and wonder if I could strip them to frame and retro fit all of the foam and seat stuff, then use my mounts. Also, did 70 blazer come with dealer installs such as skid plate under t-case and gas tank protector, a big metal pan covering the tank. Also had a huge trailer hitch mechanism under it. I will try to post some of the pics I have later. Thanks for your help,great site!
