Traditional B/D '88 2dr blazer
Hold on... Let me step into my flame suit before I post.
"okay Im good."
Yes I have used the search function. Ive found some very good info on this site, hence the reason I signed up. However, 90% of the threads I tried to refer to, the pics have been taken down, or whatever.
As the title states, I am traditional body dropping an 88' 2 dr blazer. Yes, this is my first time doing this by myself, (but I have seen a few in progress, and helped a few friends on different model trucks.) No, I am not a newbie in fabrication.
all that out of the way.
I am looking for examples of traditional body dropped blazers, cargo areas. 2 area in question:
1. I dont want to tub the rear... I actually prefer to keep the back seat, and am hellbent on it, for my kiddos. Im looking for cuts around the rear fenders. I know I can cut on the out side of the fender seam, in the bottom of the fender well, close to the seam, and I can cut the high arch on the fender on the skeltal side of the body on the inside. Im just looking for pics of this in other builds, if anyone has ever done this.
2. the gas filler neck cover, on the interior side of the body. just curious on how some people have handled these.
For info on the truck, well, Im body dropping 3.5", truck will only be running 15x7's on 195/60's, and will be static for the first year on a 5/6 drop. so, I dont need huge tubbed fender wells.
I will be starting a build thread on this project in the next few days.
