Your build is looking good. I just started to take my Blazer apart.
Turned out good. Need to get the front section done but need to finish my rust repair first.

Re: Project Sandstorm. 1971 Blazer 4wd, Boosted 6.0 sand and show beast

Well, some update.
Its no longer 454. I will have a frame, running gear with a454 in it for sale here pretty soon.
It now has a twin turbo built 6.0 liter.

Random stuff...

That's a monster. How much power do you expect it to put out?

Well, good question. I built the motor to support upwards of 1200hp.
Turbos would peak at 1200 also. My trans MIGHT support 600. lol. And my drivelines.
I just wanted something with a solid 700 wheel horsepower with TONS of room to grow. ITs more of a show rig then a crawler. It does have lockers and what not, but it will never see mud or rocks, just sand and shows.

Pretty stupid what photobucket did. Completely ruined my whole post./ Cant decide if i should repost the pics, or screw it.

Anyways, i have some more pics.

That looks "FUN" Scary fun!! Blazers have such a short wheelbase they get squirrely pretty quick. Looking forward to seeing this finished!
