Cool build. Do you happen to have the original interior out of it?

Yes I have the complete interior that I am going to sell. It is Black and grey. The headliner was trash so threw it away but have everything else. The driver's seat has typical wear and the carpet has a hole cut in it for the shifter.

Nice work. There is more of us following.

Just the very radical transformations are out of scope for me. Sometimes I wish I had kept my second Blazer and built that for a race-truck. Unfortunately over here in Europe you cannot race that except on track days but not in competitions because there are no classes for that.

Should have done a show truck instead.

I like the idea of lowering the blazer. Once I'm ready to put my new engine into my 94 I'll also lower it as much as possible without reverting to lowering spindles. Might be an inch or so.

Once the cage is in, how do you plan on building the floor? A tubular frame and fiberglass?

There isn't a class for the Blazers at all so just going to go out and have fun. I have had my very competitive racing days and just out for fun now. I got an itch to build something different from the usual builds and this is the first of the builds. Next is a twin engine hotrod but need something to go out and romp on first so decided to do the Blazer. That and Blazers are an addiction that I have had for years.

For the floor I am planning to build an aluminum lower skid plate from the front bumper to the rear end and main floor aluminum also. That is how my formula cars are and works great. I am looking at options to relocate brake and clutch master cylinders down low on the frame to keep the firewall clean also.

Sorry no updates this weekend. I helped my son with some rust repair and paint on the firewall of his Blazer and think I have it to where he can do most of the work himself for a while, so I will be able to work on mine more I hope.
