    I think when people like you and me document a modification and put it on the internet it is one of the most helpfull things available. From complex things like a ring and pinion change or an axle swap to somthing fairly simple like installing a speedi-sleeve. This has been one of the most important things I use to figure what is involved in a modification and if its somthing I can do in my driveway (like what CANT a person do in their driveway[​IMG]!). I think there needs to be a site we can go to and have links to all the cool little things we have done to our vehicles. I have been looking for the site where the guy installs auto meter gauges in his truck because I am planning on doing this, but I cant find it..I know its there because I have read the write up...now if there was a site we could go to with links to stuff like this It would be priceless. I would like to get a collection of fullsize blazer and trucks mods made and put them on my website for all to use. Then post it on all of the search engines for other chevy enthisiasts to share. Give me some input on your thoughts and If you have a site you want to let me know about please do!

    That is a great idea! If I had time to update my own site, I'd try to get the ball rolling on this idea... It really does sound like a good idea.

    Ummm this site is where we all can do that. Just submit your writeups to Steve and he would be happy to post them up. Worked for me.

    How's that? It's real easy to create a message board category "Modifications &amp; Writeups" and we all can post our writeups there. Anyone can run a search on what they are looking for and read on how to do it.

    Secondly, since you feel the urge to create some pages, feel free to view the projects on my page I have posted. Click on the "Projects Pics" link. Enjoy...

    I think some type of good organization would help a lot. Just like having Waxers stuff. The problem is I'll bookmark his page, then 2 months later I'll forget where the heck I put it! Same with the Gauge article...here it is by the way....www.jmartin.net/parker/goose.htm

    ahahaha yah. I've been so involved with work and other Unix related stuff. Atleast I have the important page up. I have so many projects to add to it, its not funny. Those include "Entire Electical Replacement" "Roll Cage Install" Floor board Repair" and "Crossover Steering" for starters...

    I am always looking for good articles to put up, I still have a few in the que to get up as well. I will add the gages article to the tech section as well. If someone wants to make a link page with all of them that would be great, then I can copy over as time permits, thanks guys.

    A link page is a very good idea. Brian Swearingen did this for all the Land Cruiser tech sites.

    A similar site for chevys would be very helpful.

    '85mouse, I think your idea is way kewl! Ithink you should also have a section where there are links to places that handle stuff, that works, and is reasonably priced (I'm not refering to links to places like 4WPW &amp; ORU's overpriced stuff) Places like ORD, Missouri Outfitters, High Angle Driveline, etc. Places that are actual wheelers, and are not out to rip the public off (4WPW?????) Even list email address' to guys who build brackets for rear disc brakes on a 14 bolt &amp; the like. I think this would be a hot website! I would be even better if it was like a membership like CK5, with (No) advertising! But then costs, may be prohibitive then. Just my .02 cents worth!

    1 ton '87 Chevy SWB in the making!

    That is the exact thing I am thinking of. And for sites like this one with numerous tech articles just haev a link to the tech section in general and let people pick for themselves. I would like to get some people who have done Misfits or DERBINATOR's rear 14FF brackets with details on how they did the E-brakes, etc...I have a collection of tech articles already and I may have a site up tonight.

    If you've got the time and the know-how I would say go for it. If you get a good selection of links you will definately have a popular page. I have noticed that there aren't as many home-written how-to pages for chevy stuff as there is for other manufacturers.

    I've written a few for Land Cruisers, soon I will have a couple for my diesel. Might help somebody out, and writing a web page is a good way to kill a snowy afternoon.
