Aaron’s 1987 Blazer Build

Little background story. I bought a 1990 K5 for my first vehicle and built it from the ground up. Lt1 our of a 90s corvette, 3/4 ton axles, 37x12.50 MTRs and I loved it. A few years later I sold it and have regretted it since. I bought a 84 blazer that was already lifted but just didn’t have the interest I did in my first one since I didn’t build it. Only kept it about a year and sold it too. Fast forward about 5 years and I got the itch for another one. After a lot of searching and realizing these things are a lot more sought after now than they were 5 years ago and I found one. Bone stock old fleet vehicle with what I consider not too much rust. Some small parts on the exterior and then the rockets and front floor pans need replaced. I don’t really off road much I just love these old trucks. So plans for this one is a complete on frame restoration. Gonna get the rust repaired and new paint, then just have a small oil leak from the rear main seal. Other than that it’s just minor stuff like the wiper motor and interior work. I’m excited to get back in a blazer and can’t wait til it’s finally done!

This was my first vehicle. Built it from stock. Should’ve never let it go.

Got the top off, carpet and back seat out tonight and found this. Oh well. I was expecting rust under the old carpet anyways. Gonna wire brush the floor and fix all the rust tomorrow hopefully. 8D04397E-FEA4-487E-8416-1A15DA944FBE.jpeg 416D4070-B6B8-48B6-9837-549A9894327B.jpeg 15B9FEE7-F505-4109-8027-AEF5318E2A05.jpeg D2D20AB7-4A71-47FE-BDEE-8B80E26E1AF3.jpeg
