    WELL, started working on the blazer today, the plan was to replace the door weatherstrip, drill the holes for the mirrors in the new doors, put the fenders and radiator support back on, and put the glass back in the doors. SUPRISE!
    the guy I bought the truck from came up with an idea to swap my 3/4 ton axles with his 1/2 ton ones. Fine by me, the truck wont be used for pulling anything and it isn't for off road, so what's the difference to me (other than now there is $$$ in my pocket). so the guys get to work, it was actually easier than I had pictured it. Didn't realize it wasn't a complex swap. BUT, night grew quickly on them, and the 5 year old starts kindergarten tomorrow, so we only got the fronts done. Hopefully this weekend the rear's can be done, then maybe just maybe I'll get all the new metal on the truck.. I really am starting to think snow may fly before I get this thing on the road!!! Anyone planning a trip to vermont next weekend, feel free to drop me a line, I'm sure I can come up with some "extra" wrenches !
