Restomod '72 K5 - Old Yeller - back on the road

  • I've loved 67-72 blazers since my first one back in high school. it was a rusted out POS, but I loved it. about 12 years ago I bought another one with the intention of treating it a little better. :D

    I fixed my '72 up about 10 years ago, but its been parked outside so, I'm going to have to do it again soon. I also took a lot of shortcuts last time that are biting me now. :doah:

    I found some info from CK5 way back then, and rejoined a few months ago in order to hopefully do a better job this time. since I've been lurking for awhile now, I figured it was time for an intro thread, and a recap of where I'm at.

    I started out with a basically stock blazer, but with plenty of utah rust... a lot more than I thought I'd have when I got started. :(
