Default black 2002 Blazer from Germany

Hi @ all. My name is Thorsten and I want to show you my 2002 Blazer build.I bought the car April 2015 īcause I needed a car that can tow a little bit more than my E200 Mercedes that I owend at that time, cause I wanted a car that can tow a trailer with my other project....a 1954 Lincoln.
On a german car selling internet portal I found after searching for some days a 2002 Blazer S10.

the plan was to repair/renew damaged and old parts, taking in a LPG system, a trailer hitch and make it a little bit better looking

orderd LPG system

<a href="http://s372.photobucket.com/user/oldschool-vw/media/my%202001%20Blazer/IMG_20150505_180341_zpsw9gxotal.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i372.photobucket.com/albums/oo170/oldschool-vw/my%202001%20Blazer/IMG_20150505_180341_zpsw9gxotal.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_20150505_180341_zpsw9gxotal.jpg"/></a>

new parts that went into the Blazer were brakes, brakelines, shocks at the front, trailer hitch, wheel bearings and some more safety relevant parts. After some problems with my hydraulic ramp we moved the Blazer to my friends workshop and began the work...


first part was the LPG system

my buddy had some old 8x15 wheels in a corner of his workshop and we took a look if the they fit





after sandblasting and powdercoating



I orderd the new tires....no 30īs.....in Germany it is not so easy to get them street legal so i decided to order the original size 235/75 15 as MTīs







first test on the car without lift...but black paited widenings ;-)

Nice work so far, I got a little worried when you cut that much out of your dash but you finished it off nicely. You're probably going to get a bunch of people drooling over your flares soon lol.
