Default 2004 Trailblazer LT Small build

This is a small build thread so I do not need to blow up the "what have you gotten done to your blazer today" thread.

The 93 Jimmy saw its time, it ran and drove fine, but had many small problems that would have cost more to fix than it was worth, including a lot of rust. So we traded it in for next to nothing to get this 04 trailblazer. It has the LT package, moon roof, cloth seats and it is 2wd and not 4wd. It has the G80 with Traction control.

I am currently building the tail lights for it and will be getting all the wires ect tomorrow to put the stereo system in.

At this point I have plans to just do the stereo, the exterior lights, LED interior lights including the instrument cluster, and paint the wheels black. I would ultimately like to do a leveling kit to drop the back down to match the front. Other than that. I will do small things to throw some more black into the interior, like wrapping the sub box in black leather.


Here are some photos (which I have posted in the what have you gotten done thread)

I named the thread that because of you LMAO!

Yeah, its going to be reasonably small. Mostly cosmetic and audio. And of course the lights. I tried to talk Chelsea into bagging it since its 2wd.. but apparently she does not think that is a good idea hahah

I have started on the reverse lights. I cant do the other lights until I get the spare housings in the mail on Monday and cut them open and measure for the board size.

This is just one side, 15 Nichia LED's... and I am under powering them for longevity.

Extremely bright, pictures taken in a fully lit room.

Well, it has begun. Housings are cut open. I am going to work my a## off to get these done, OEM lights dont cut it.
