No, but if I were going to 2-tone mine, that's exactly how I'd do it. Modify and install the pickup moldings, and 2-tone the center. Looks the best in my opinion, and would probably fool most people as being factory.

I've really been thinking hard about doing it....

Re: Pics of Two-Tone Blazers

Here's a shot of the 50th Blazer that is unfortunately not getting much love in the shop currently.. Someone on the boards photochopped it from one very nice truck.

Love it! Planning to paint mine the same way, but with black where yours is white, and a silver pinstripe instead of charcoal.

Re: Pics of Two-Tone Blazers

Went the traditional two-tone as on the pickups with mine. The original Medium Red with a Chevy Navaho tan from the 50s matching the tan soft top.

I love that I'm trying to fix some minor rust on mine without repainting the entire thing. Seriously thinking about fixing the rust and painting the bottom black where this one is white.

Re: Pics of Two-Tone Blazers

Webfishr, that's a really nice looking truck. I'm thinking of doing the same type of thing with mine, except yellow and white with the top being white.

That looks good on the blazer so long as the early style front end and side molding trim is used like Twisted posted.

Did you guys buy short bed truck trim to make this combination happen?

I've been toying with the idea of doing a Burb "twin". Or at least my dad is PUSHING me to do it. But, I've got a '68 clip... so it may be more like Twisted's

My photochop....

Love the color combo!
A few questions about your top;
1. What brand is it?
2. How difficult was it to install?
3. Overall satisfaction with the top? Would you buy it again?
Thanks!

This picture you have here is exactly how I'm doing mine (same colors even).

Even the short bed trim is too long, but guys have been trimming that down for this for a long time now. We are fortunate now as another member mentioned above that a place called Mar-K Truck Parts in Oklahoma City now makes this trim specifically for the blazer since these 2 tone paint schemes have become so popular.

Re: Pics of Two-Tone Blazers

Correction, after looking through their site, I only see the blazer modified moldings for the older style 68-69 front clips. I don't see upper moldings made to fit the 71-72 style. So it still looks like you'll have to buy short bed moldings and shorten them for the paint scheme above.

They don't offer the spears as a standard online product for Blazers, but I believe they can be custom ordered for a Blazer. They are a supporting vendor and I've heard good things about them. You can PM user MAR-Ktech and they should be able to answer your questions.

Nope. But they should have 'cause it sure looks good.

Re: Pics of Two-Tone Blazers

Finally got mine finished. Fixed the minor rust and bedlined the tub. Also put bedliner under the molding rather than paint. Powdercoated my bumpers, wheels, and tire carrier. The rest of the paint isn't great, but feel alot better about driving the truck in mud and occasional snow which is what I bought it for having not spent 5k on new paint.
