    I'm contemplating removing the fenders and tub and building my 89 from the frame up. I'm not in a hurry, I just want to do it with ease since I'm a one man show. I did this with my 76 CJ7 and it worked out great. Everything was easy to get to and painting the tub was easier.

    What am I getting in to if I head in this direction? The CJ was easy, few clutch parts, steering column, wires, but I haven't look at my Blazer in depth yet.

    Anyone done it?

    I'm sort of doing that and wish I wasn't. My K5 has a bent frame so 'm building a second rolling chassis to eventually swap the body onto. Since you've already done the Jeep you know what you're getting into. The biggest problem for me is detail, I'm having a difficult time actually making big progress because of the urge to make/buy/use new stuff (even nut & bolt type hardware, etc).

    I guess I'm really just saying be careful and don't let the "snowball effect" take control of you. At this rate I'll be 45 before mine is done. :doah:
