Default I had to "re-front" the Blazer

My daughter decided to run over a Honda a couple of weeks ago.. So I had to replace the front of the Blazer. I only post this to say how overall cheap and easy this was. The first step was to see what was needed.
1. Right headlight assembly
2. Grill
3. Bumper
4. Air deflector
5. left front bumper support (save your money)

While I was at it, I decided to replace the already broken Left Mirror and the left rear bumper "cap".

I tried the local junk yards.. yeah.. waste of time for old sun beaten crap that was not really correct.

Then I looked at LMC (sheesh)

I ended up using the LMC catalog for GM parts numbers and go everything for the truck for less than half price with free shipping.

Parts with the mirror and the end cap was less than $350

Watched a few videos on how to paint plastics, bought the stuff and painted the parts that needed it as they arrived.

Last Saturday I put it all together. The only thing that gave me fits was the air deflector and that was because the plastic push rivets that were on the truck were screwed, and getting them at the local parts house was trial and error.

The truck is back together and looks rather nice for being a drive way repair job!
