shorten the body to fit the 11 3/8 wheelbase I wanted (I know the blazers are shorter) but from my Tamiya jeep build I know shorter sucks :lmao:

...Another awesome Chevy build that's going to put mine to shame...Really!? That's off to an awesome start for sure. Between the two of us I think we're going to run the farm stores outta 3/16 rod ; ) lol. I love the old Chevy builds. I could look at them all day.

Body looks great, chassis is definitely not hard to look at either. Nice job so far.

I got some parts in this week so I made some time to work on the blazer
http://i1290.photobucket.com/albums/...ps72914w6q.jpg
and picked some wheels from a member on here still need to get the pitbull rock beast most places are out of stock :x so put the swampers on them for now
http://i1290.photobucket.com/albums/...ps2judahnc.jpg
I decided to cut out a spot in the floor/frame so I can put a full size spare in standing up and I will be making a tire mount for it to stand up and off to the side

I picked up a 3D printed grill off ebay to save me some time and cut out for light buckets but didn't like that it was flat :x

http://i1290.photobucket.com/albums/...psgdvsgfyq.jpg
so I cut the ends off and added to it :)

Nice Grill!

I need to make one for my 74 GMC Drift Dually. Are you going to convert the fenders to the older style? I've got that done, along with extending the nose of the hood as well. but need to work on the grill.

Here's a pic side-by-side with the stock clod shell

Re: 77' blazer "clod body" by southern builds
 
yes I am going to extend the hood the fenders maybe it all depends on how much of it is left after I cut to fit the tires the ones that are on it are a little taller then what I will be using

Re: 77' blazer "clod body" by southern builds
 
Spare tire cut out looks spot on! "thumbsup"

Now hurry up and get the shock mounts done so I can lift each corner up and set it back down for hours :lmao:

I have some time and parts now that there back in stock. :lmao: so I started with putting the pitbulls on the wheels and was going to use these rings but didn't look right so back to the simple rings for now.

Absolutely awesome fab work, almost a shame to cover it with the body! Truck looks killer so far!

You have a good eye for doing tubework, very nice!"thumbsup"

Re: 77' blazer "clod body" by southern builds
 
the thin rings and irok tires looked the best too me. the pitbulls kinda ruin the super scale look you had going imo.

Rodamis 05-07-2015 10:26 PM

Re: 77' blazer "clod body" by southern builds
 
For a Super scale look you would be running some 4 inch tires . The pits are at least smaller looking and help it away from the monster truck look

Re: 77' blazer "clod body" by southern builds
 
I drool on it everytime I hold it in my hands. This needs to be prioritized. My mental psyche can't handle this wait
