    Finally after 9 months of endless work the blazer is going on the road. New fenders/Doors/Rockers/Rear quaters/tailgate and a bunch of holes in the floor welded up. The truck is a '85 with 72250 ORIGINAL miles. The motor is a goodwrench 4bolt that as far as i can tell was put in in 94 to upgrade the 305. a replacement 700r4 and lol ten bolts of fun front and back. I wil post pictures of the old girl... http://www.coolwebworks.com/blazer/12Jul991.htm these are pictures of the body work I did before I let the body man do the finish stuff..

    FORGOT TO ASK ABOUT THE FLOORPANS!! Give me some more coffee please.

    sorry its early. how do the front floor pans fromlmc go in? I plan on welding then all around the edges... but how hard are the to get in? Should i cut the old out? This will be my project in the sping if i keep the blazer... not sure if gas prices will drive me away or not.. But it will feel good to drive a tank vs. my little s10 pickup

    Easiest way is to lay the new pans in to get an idea of how they will fit. Trim the new pans as necessary until you get a good fit. Then draw a line around them. Leave about an inch to work with and cut out the old metal. I put about a 1/2" flange on the lip, trimmed everything to fit and tack/stitch welded the pan in place. Then I gave the entire seam a good coating of rust prentive paint and then brushed on brushable seam sealer. The support rib that runs down the middle (under the floor pan) I popped riveted with 3/16" flange head rivets then coated them with seam sealer.
