I'm working on a tilt design for the driver's side front seat. The factory buckets weren't the greatest in terms of adjustability and the driver's side seat goes forward and backward only on these. This will allow the driver's side seat to flip forward. I designed everything, have all of my materials and will start building it tomorrow. Hopefully it will work out good  8)

Wow, I've done a LOT since this last post. That seat flip is all done and very nice for driver's side access. I took a video and can post if anyone cares. I installed a rear PDC along with a 12V receptacle and 10" slim sub as well as a grounding bus. Some new 6X9's and dual 4x10 center replacement Kenwoods and Fosgate's. I got the USA 740 radio and will probably get that in this week. I made new rear panels from scratch as the originals were toast. They took several days to make but came out great and I found exact match material and color.  8)

I have a new steering box to install still and a few other things I'm hoping to get done this weekend. I've done about 8 million other things but will post more later. Too busy!

Oh, still waiting on the seat foam and new seat covers. They're saying another month if I'm lucky...

Looks great!  I'd love to watch the video.

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!

Nice man! I’m right behind you, just put peel and seal on the floors and firewall, then insulation on top.

Well, I have not been good at keeping up with posting my work that's for sure. I stripped the tailgate, fixed, epoxy primed, primed, painted, and cleared. Working on restoring tailgate band. Did a bunch of other stuff. I'll update more later.

Beautiful! Green is my favorite color, then red. Looks very nice and an eye catcher!

I enjoy seeing the updates on this truck.
It's crazy to think that the person that sold it to Vile didn't even know what year the Blazer was.

I don't think he cared to even know. Back when I bought this, people just wanted these rot boxes out of their yards. No one really cared about them and as long as they got better than scrap value, they were happy. I'm just glad I acted on it and even though I sat on it for a decade it was worth it.

That’s beautiful work, Vile!

You guys are inspirational. I’m painting my next truck myself, the old 52 international.
