Re: Prostreet / Dragrace 1972 blazer

Looks just bada$$.... All my hotrods/drag cars, and almost all of my personal cars have always been black, no other color looks better to me than black. Can you show and/or explain how your going to fasten your glove box/gauge cluster to the dash. I just love this idea. Im getting some custom gauges for my project and think I want to do this mod.
Thanks for sharing your build...

Re: Prostreet / Dragrace 1972 blazer

the ground its sitting on is angled some, but yes it has a rake 2 the stance do 2 the fact that front tires are 26.5 tall and the rear are 29.5 tall and thats how i had 2 set the rear up 2 fit my suspension without hacking up my floor and using a stock frame. The front is lowered 4.5 also and i still have massive header clearance, the roads up here are brutall and full of potholes.

Re: Prostreet / Dragrace 1972 blazer

badass your blind i guess. this thing is tubbed and still uses the stock rear floor, which im keeping. the rears can fit up to 20 wide tires. this isnt some air bagged lowrider tucking dubbs and scrapping. This blazer is ment to be driven and dragraced at low ten or high nines. The engine is installed and its a 598 bbc with over 800hp on 1 carb. there are many pics on here 2 see the tubs,floor,frame,motor,and suspension. please take the time ,to look them over and then have something educated from which to contribute.

Re: Prostreet / Dragrace 1972 blazer

what front springs?
you could probably get the front in the air with some stockers
but.... it wouldnt be a true hotrod without rake

Re: Prostreet / Dragrace 1972 blazer

Nice truck! Your project makes me want to spend money on my Suby BUT I've already spent a fortune on my Vette! I'm thinkin Tubs and a smallish 177 blower to fit under the standard hood?
