did simple trimming work on the blazer console? i have one like that but didn't know how it would work with the 4wd transfer case hump on the front left part of it.

basically, i had to trim the little "nipple" in the front tray flush. and trim the back a little also. had to cut down the metal bracket as well to get it to sit right. the hump hangs over the edge a little but once its in you cant really tell

For your seatbelt replacement, go to your local Upholstery supply shop and buy the seat belt material your self, then take it to someone that can sew, make sure they are using NYLON THREAD!!!! it is important to use this kind of thread, remember that your like depends on it.

I have done a few seatbelt replacements and it is super easy, just make sure that who ever sews them for you know what their are doing.

Any Local Car Upholstery shop should be able to help you, I recommend buying the material your self and save a few bucks.

Nice Pictures

Wow, what great looking pictures! Amazing what a wide angle camera lens can do - those pictures are really sharp. You don't often see interior pictures that look that good.

Nice. What wheel is that? That looks like a great replacement for the factory wheel, especially on an ex-service 9C1.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. my friend took the pics. i agreee. there arnt very many full interior shots out there. so i wanted to provide some. :)

The wheel is off 94 Lumina. its really sharp lookin. only drawback is there is no airbag so your dash light will be on and you have to "hide" the connector for abs inside the column. i just unplugged the bulb.

I painted the dash/ashtray/rear shelf carpet/speaker covers with the duplicolor paint as well.


as far as seat belts; they sell this material at upholstery shops? how do i wind it onto my retractor?
