I bought an 86 Blazer about 2 months ago for a winter beater.It's a 2.8FI w/5-speed and 4.10 gears in the rear.I bought it off the original owner who has taken excelent care of it for the last 17 years.But it has some spots that will be a problem in the future if I don't take care of them soon.There's no "visable" rust,but over the rear wheels the paint is bubbling.I know you can buy doors,fenders,and inner fender wells and stuff,but can you buy patch panels for the tub?I would like to have all rust cut out and patch panels welded in.I think I'll be keeping this thing for a long time.Next week I'm picking up a 3.4 from a 93 Camaro w/12,000 mi.I'll probably get started on that in the spring.Then I want to move on to the body.

I see that they have panels for the lower part of the doors,but I was looking for panels for the rear quarters.

Yes there are several panels available, from just the wheel well lip to complete quarter panels. complete quraters take a while to put on though, ;) hehe

The wheel well lip is probably all I'll need.Thanks for the info,at least now I know they're available when I need them.

So where did you get your panels?Spitz?I just bought a new aftermarket door yesterday so the parts collecting has begun.Next pay I'll buy another door,then fenders,inner fender wells,weather stripping,patch panels,and mabey by this summer I'll be ready to get started.
