Re: My winter project

I rounded up some straight down exhaust manifolds. I could use some help from you guys with stock AC. I have the brackets, compressor and some bolts but not sure of right placement.
Thanks

Re: My winter project

Re: My winter project

I may have to rename the thread to (My many winters project) I'm getting things done slowly and a lot of boring stuff but I've found out that the phrase rebuilt means....do-over.

Re: My winter project

I now have the needed puzzle pieces to start floor and body repair stuff. This will be a challenge for me.

Re: My winter project

Go slow, take pictures, ask questions, etc. Many have been down this road before and have made pretty good progress.

It can all be fixed.

Re: My winter project

Just a little progress but no welding. I have trimmed and fitted, trimmed and fitted again, put the door on and then take the door off. This takes a lot of time. I plan to start welding soon.

Re: My winter project

I agree! if can make past the "B" post ,you've got it made. they're like like pcs. at that on intersection. I actually added one more for additional support

I took the guts out of my door, it was getting to heavy, for the amount of times I took it off and on

good luck on the welding

Re: My winter project

Thanks for the pic inside 'B' post, didn't cut mine open that far. worried something rusty was goin' to stare back at me. bottom of 'b' post is one of the most complex parts of the blazer

great work so far, thanks for posting up and entertaining me while mine sits in electrical prison

Re: My winter project

I'm working on the outer B panel patches and I have some questions if anyone has replaced these, should there be a flang or tab on the bottom panel to attach the panel to the end of the rocker box.
Thanks

Re: My winter project

Here's a couple of pictures of how it should be. The b pillar area on this Blazer is original & unrestored . They are just a tab that is spot welded on.

Re: My winter project

Thank you for the response that will help me a lot. I had no reference of how it should have be attached since mine and had rusted away.
