    before and after. Its still not completely done..needs gears, steering, brakes, lockers, etc. but it is getting close. I bought it in June '04 with a smoking 305, ratty interior, guage cluster not working. It was a POS!! I would like to take this time to thank everyone here on this board for all the help, I would have never gotten this far without you guys :saweet:

    its called Eagle, but is made by Ultimate Linings. We spray it at my shop, so I use the Blazer to show customers what can be done. The flames were a pain in the butt to do though.

    HA! The black bedliner looks schweet! How strong is that stuff? how much it cost to shoot the truck with bedliner, or I guess how many gallons it take?

    Looks good! :D

    we taped the flames off and then sprayed them, then taped over the flames and shot the blue color on the rest of the truck. I have pics somewhere It took about 4 gallons to spray the inside and outside.
