i'm getting ready to start the build up on this truck and figured it belong in the technical section. heres a link to the thread that got this started. the body man (Briggs) came by today and looked and we agreed on a price, he will come and pick the truck up on monday. he said it will take about 3 weeks so i figure about 3-6 months.

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/054468.html


does anyone know off hand the paint codes off the pace car? i plan on painted the gmc the same colors so it will match.

please give me your suggestions and opinions on this project, if you have cool and inovative realistic ideas about different things i can do with this let me know.

I've seen a Jimmy Indy Hauler before. That was just over the summer. I was at wal-mart then I seen a Jimmy with an odd spoiler type thing on the back. Then I seen it said Indy Hauler. Never heard of one before that. Seems pretty darn cool though.

just a lil update. i got the lmc catolog and come to find out they do not have anything for the blazer/jimmy, only the p/u. i have ran into a snag, to get the front grille of an 84 i will need to change the core support. the headlamps bolt up in a different spot. my problem with this is i do not want to bolt a aftermarket core support to the truck, aftermarket does not always line up perfect and the whole front end of my truck could end up looking like it was wrecked and redone! i also cannot find a used one that has not been in an accident. anyone have any suggestions?

cruise over to s10forum.com or s-seriesforum.com and ask in the wanted parts section. lot of guys over there have part trucks.

I thought about doing this project as well to go along with my Indy.

This was 5 years ago , but for those who haven't been there, you just tell them what you're interested in and the staff will start bringing you photo books of that years race and associated vehicles.
Hope this helps and good luck


i took your advice and flew to Indianapolis and went to the Motor Speedway Museum and looked thru thousands of pictures! as a matter of fact every picture of the 84 indy 500. i found a couple of the s15 pick-up at some sort of ceramony at a different location and time than the race, and 1 pic of what i'm sure is the pick-up way in the background. but nothing at all on the jimmy version. hell i found about 5 pics of the full size gmc van(safari i'm guessing) painted up gray and white w/logos and such. also found quite a few if the wreckers but could not find one of the back to get a clear shot of the licence plate to see if it matched my wrecker plate i bought. here i am

yes as a matter of fact i did. i just put them into frames a couple of minutes ago. i got them in 11x14 size. i got 1 with a picture of Rick Mears standing by his car and the pace car, another of all 3 pace cars in the garage together using a lens from the camera that makes it look like you are looking though a peep hole. i wanted more pictures but they are expensive.


UPDATE: body guy is slacking off, just got off the phone with him complaining about swapping rad. supports over. i put a lil fire under him, we'll see what happens.

I was just going to PM you on the progress of the truck. Did you finally figure out how to put the older front end on, and choose the wheels?

I know about 2 years ago when I had my 89 s10 blazer I was recieving LMC catologs specific to them. Do they not print newer catologs now? If you need one I might have one laying around.

body man swears that he can make the 84 grille work without changing the radiator support. i don't believe him but we'll see. no, i'm still debating the wheels.
the LMC catolog does not offer parts for the blazer unless it is a part that cross-references with the pick-up.

don't know if these guys have an exact match but you could ask for a few samples from them to see

http://www.auto-interior.com/carpetindex.htm?wcw=google&gclid=CPnRv9nlj4UCFQ5gSgodxCZDIQ

they also have the molded carpet for the blazer.

It's all but impossible to match up colors based on what you see on a computer monitor, since they will all be slightly different. Ordering the samples and holding them to an original Indy's carpet is the best way to go there.

Also, if you haven't looked into decals yet, shop_rat45 has made repro door and fader stripe decals, he may also be able to do the 'Official Truck' and 'GMC Indy Hauler' decals?

Very cool idea this Indy Hauler. I have a concern though with the Blazer. Is this going to be enough truck to haul a car and trailer? Is it the Vortec V6 engine or a V8 swap? I usually haul my cars with a 2000 GMC Sierra 5.3 liter V8 (290 horse or thereabouts) and class 3 hitch. I had a Blazer for a while and it seemed pretty strained with such a load on a class 2 hitch although I think maybe a class 3 might be available for the Blazer - dunno. Regardless, if the power isn't there when done they offer great V8 swap kits for the Blazer. Keep truckin!!!!!

i have the same concerns. but in reality i'm sure i won't be towing with it much. i don't go to many car shows cause i have a full time job & 2 part time jobs. the blz has the 195hp VORTEC, so i'm thinking it can do it on occasions. i hope they do make a class 3 for the s10 blz or i'm in trouble.
if all goes well with this truck there will be a V8 conversion in the future(i'm thinking LS1)

its pretty flat in the area he lives in, so as long as he isnt hauling in the larger hills the blazer will tow just fine, and if all else fails, vortec makes a supercharger for it

How far are you going to go towards authenticity as far as the interior? like swapping out the gauge cluster and steering wheel for an 84 one? Are you going to paint it all the same light slate gray and charcoal gray used in the Indy Fieros, with red carpeting and leather seats with red cloth inserts... (can you tell I'm not the one paying for it? )

Have you looked into decals yet? What about accurate side mirrors? Did 84's have that T-handle thing on the back for opening the hatch? Or a rear wiper for tht matter? OOH what about the ground effects?

(can you tell I'm not the one paying for it? )

Have you looked into decals yet? What about accurate side mirrors? Did 84's have that T-handle thing on the back for opening the hatch? Or a rear wiper for tht matter? OOH what about the ground effects?


very good questions bob. actually you just gave me a few ideas.
guage cluster - no change
sterring wheel - indy fiero wheel
as far as the slate & charcoal i had not put any thought to that yet because of the interior already being light gray, but i will !
seats - original indy seats (problem is then what do i do with the back seats so they match?
door panels - look at the picture, you see factory carpet?, i'm putting all rerd carpet up to that next line right at the armrest.
decals- not looked yet, but have local shop or the link provided up above.(just wondering how good the link can do w/no truck.)
side mirrors - no thought yet.
t-handle - i'm think 84's have
wiper - i'm keeping
3rd brake light - i'm keeping(have to, body shop did not remove when painting, means blue underneath)
ground effects - aaaaaaaarrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhh

what would be the correct size tires to order. of course they are going on Firebird 15in rims, but going on a truck, so i don't want car size tires. i don't want a low profile look but a meaty, tough look would be nice.
