    Blazer

    Jslick asked for pictures of my early 70's Blazer creation. I built this before the EPA site so many may have not seen it

    Here you go..

    I set out to make an accurate 1/10th Blazer body, since I have seen maybe 2 others in my years with crawlers that are accurate.

    First was to correct the body line on the front fender



    Many steps in between here, but this is what you can do with some determination










    FYI, if you care

    The donor



    Chop, chop.




    Then came making the front fenders match the year, a little styrene strip helped. It is a little hard to see with the light primer.



    Then the stock grill was the wrong year also, so after following someone elses tip from their build, I bought a repro Blazing Blazer grill


    But it was wider than the stock one


    I had to cut off roughly 1/4" each side



    Test fit


    I had to extend the front of the hood to match also and finalize the fit for the grill





    I would LOVE to do another. Maybe this winter I will need an easy project.. And yes, it was an easy project. time consuming but easy

    Why do I care where Waldo is?

    THE MASTER!!

    Saw this a while back on GSRCRC, top friggin notch. THAT blazer class 1 would win the season on looks alone. Lol.

    "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered...I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -Thomas Jefferson

    I wish I would have kept it now... The guy never posted a build thread, so I have no idea what is looks like at this point. Did good on a trade though, it was a sweet looking build
