    $2,000, 3 months, and I\'m still not done

    Wow, 3 months with out CK5 and I survived, it can be done. I've been spending the whole summer doing a rebuild on my truck and had to blab about. I gutted the whole thing, pulled the bed, tailgate, and gas tank. Painted the frame rails and cleaned that up. Replaced my rotted subframe at the back of my floor pan with 1/8" square tubing (make tool-man grunt). Put in a new bed, tailgate, and got everything to line up?! (Trust me, forget the bolt holes and get a welder and come-along, its tougher and you have more control). All the floors have been done with Morton bedliner. I also had to get busy with the welder and body puddy and graft in some patches panels on the quarter panels and floor pan. As of now I have my first layer of primer on (epoxy, because I had to take it down to the metal in some spots). I had to do a double take on my body work because I spent several hours going over the puddy with a block sander and it looks, well you can't even see it all. I suppose I shouldn't have goofed off so much but I had fun and hopefully I should be done by the end of the month. Well I'm still slighty bitter because I'm here without having a Blazer to drive and can only work on it on the weekends because I start college. OK, blab done.
