Looks good so far!

Thanks lks dcvn! I just got that plate yesterday! Hopefully get it in this weekend! Still waiting on SKC to get the full floor pan for a blazer! If they don't have soon I will attempt to use the truck floor pan and cut it!

- If I had waited for parts that were pending - I would still be waiting on a few.

Took out of box and laid on frame but did not have time to mess with it at the moment! Going to work on some this week! But doesn't look bad!

Re: 1972 Blazer undecided!!

That's pretty cool - can you take a few close up shots of where the floor meets the step up? Also all holes are present for bucket seats and passenger floor latch?

This really makes rebuilding these trucks even easier now...

Re: 1972 Blazer undecided!!

OK! I have a few pictures of the floor close up and the bolt holes for the seats! It says the floor is for bucket seats but they forgot to weld the fasteners to the floor on the passenger side where the seat latches to the floor(Not to big of a deal). The support brackets may need a little adjustment(L-bracket in picture) but overall the floor fits quite well! Going to work on it again tonight and weekend and will send more photo's.

Re: 1972 Blazer undecided!!

Yes! Floor fits good but when I was test fitting I noticed that that the notch in the firewall was not notched on the new floor so will need to adjust to make fit very well. Not sure on why these turn but will figure it out.

Re: 1972 Blazer undecided!!

That was quick! Looks great - any concerns now that you have the majority of the panels installed?

Did you end up getting new doors as well?

Re: 1972 Blazer undecided!!

I think everything is coming together good . I have a set of factory doors off a truck that I am going to cut and try.
