Needs some work. the a/c doesn't work, the inside door handles don't work, needs a RF bearing BAD!, inside tailgate handle is missing, pins and bushings in both doors and a spring for the drivers side, a little exhaust work, but the body is SOLID! Just a tiny bit of rust bubbling on the drivers wheel arch and some rust stains for the start of a hole in the lower L quarter. Needs the torsion bars cranked up in the front and a good cleaning.

Went to the salvage yards yesterday. Got some Sanford and Sons treasures. Some I paid for, others were free.
Things I paid for:
1. front half carpet $12.00
2. console lid $4.00
3. outside mirror $10.00
4. front wheel bearing hub $20.00
5. 2 nice door panels $15.00 ea
6. glove box door $5.00
7. inside tailgate handle $2.00
Things I got free:
coolant overflow cap
paint matched door detent spring
2 inside lock rod guides
rear console block off plate
Not a bad haul. I need to go back for more still. I need a steering wheel, (it has a hole through it that has been black taped over from a right hand drive conversion in it's former life as a rural route mail delivery truck, this is also the reason for the carpet replacement as there are holes cut out of it for the conversion) the right rear bumper end cap. I was looking for one in the right color and came up empty. Found a place online that offers painted parts shipped to your door and a new one painted is $160ish. I'm still friends with the last body shop I worked at and Tony mixed up a small portion of paint for me for free. I have clear so now it doesn't matter what color part I find. I'll just paint one at little to no cost. My console is broke at the front mount. I thought I could live with it, but hey, I know where one is for under $20.00 with the cup holder liner and flat tray liner because after cleaning the nasty off of the rubber parts...they're still nasty! I also need the metal clips for the arm rest bolts and If I can find a really clean tailgate trim panel I'll grab it for a few extra bucks.
I might need more, but I'll give the blazer a once over and add to the list if needed.
