Default 85 Chevy K5 Build

Just picked up my first blazer from a buddie and it is going to be done up as a mud truck. Has a 350 bored 10 over with a crank and some other mods. Im doing a 2 month build to start with. I will post pics as the progress is made. Enjoy and open for whatever.

After a good pressure cleaning. It had allot of mold on the top of it.


Getting the body stripped of all molding, pin striping and all the decals.

nice truck,
and def interested in what you do with the dash. i've been thinking about swapping it out for a newer one when i get mine, but if i like how yours comes our i may follow your lead.


and as for the door panels, are you going to stick with the stock lock/window buttons or are you going to do something else?

As for the door panels they are going to be no switches as I'm going to relocate to dash. I haven't decided how I'm going to do the door panels either flat with no arm rest or put one in. I will be putting 3 marine speakers in each door. Right now just trying work on dash.

Just got the 6 inch lift and that will be installed this weekend. Ordered new 15 x 10 inch black steel rims. I haven't decided what tires but I'm leaning towards 37 x 13 boggers. Will update with pics very soon.
