Says the man that drives a Fire Truck! ? ? ?They're not peeking...they're glaring...
I did this about a month back:any new updates?
I've still got everything to coat in house, but my friend in the shop next door sends out large batches to a local place and we tossed in a few parts of mine once the mounts got welded up.What happened to the in-house powder coat?? I see the mobile parts container made it back to the shop. Are you going to fold the body seam back while it's open?
The second gen Blazer frame is pretty well boxed up already. I've pushed it pretty hard and haven't felt any twisting and I've had it unload a rear wheel under some circumstances too.since your doing 'pro touring' are you going to weld up any cross braces / frame stiffeners while the body is off? I'm curious if it would help at all. The frames seem like they could twist some when sliding around turns or hard into corners.
I would be interested in your motor mounts. I'm in the parts gathering stage on a LM4 build in a 2002 xtreme blazer will be doing a DBW setup for a DD. I'm not quite set on the oil pan the Holley looks to have more ground clearance. I like the idea of the lower mounts seems that Dirty Dingo is the only one that does a different mount for the blazer.Body is back on the frame more permanently today.
My custom design engine mounts went right in where the rough prototypes had been, so my ruler and napkin sketch work translated to CAD and cutting/welding just fine.
There's always something or 3 going on in the shop.

I got many hours of practice working and reworking this design back when I had all the fancy CAD and FEA software at my disposal.
They're designed with the Blazer frame and GM hotrod oil pan in particular. They are about 1/2-3/4" lower than the typical S10 mount as the Blazer crossmember is lower. I kept about 5-10mm clearance from the pan to the crossmember as well as keeping the oil pan's lowest point about 5mm above the bottom of the crossmember.
If anyone else is interested... I've got another 4 sets of the final design ready to go as well as the original prototypes, which are very functional, but not as fun looking.
I'm also curious to see how these work with the Holley pan if anyone else is curious too.

My shop help disapproves of the lack of back scratches.

Looking to get this completely back together and out of the shop on Thursday.
Shoot me a message and we can talk. I need to sit down and look at my costs, but I have a number in mind. I'd love to get these on more trucks!I would be interested in your motor mounts.
