Under Hood Light
  • GM 1599293
  • Fan: Napa BK 6551039
  • Spring: Ace #102
  • Foam: McMaster #86225K53 1/4" w/adhesive (24" square)

  • Foam: McMaster: #8865K53 1" w/adhesive (12" square)
Hole: 3 1/2" (maybe 3 3/4")

Removal: Open glove box door, remove inside box insert. Unplug fan resistor wires, disconnect control cables from door levers (only the ones that come in from the dash). Remove the defroster duct flexible hose from the top of the box. Go under the hood. Disconnect the wire from the blower motor, heater hoses. Remove the nuts from the studs that hold the box to the firewall, don't forget the one behind the valve cover. Go inside the Jeep, pull the box back and may have to tilt it down in the rear a little to clear the firewall. I had mine out in about 15 minutes. 

When I reinstalled mine, I put a self-tapping screw into the motor mounting flange with a ground wire attached to it. This way I knew the Blazer motor had a good clean ground.

Heater Core: Autozone Transpro #846071 - 399210 (make sure it has the silver L-bracket welded onto the hose side)

Color Scheme


We had originally picked a burnt orange pearl, but Adam convinced us to go with more of a traditional Jeep color.  These photos are of another project that he did.  Every time I went over there, I must confess, I drooled over it.  Anyway, Mary and I are loving the new choice and look forward to watching the transformation!

Sold the top and doors to Adam for another client of his.
