    Re: Lets see some pics of your restored or \"being\" restored chevy.

    I dont have any before pics on a digi cam, but this thing was just awful.

    I bought my blazer almost 3 years ago, didnt do much to it the first year but since I have had it I:

    Took off all the stock baby poop paint, primered it.
    Pulled the body off the frame, sandblasted and painted it, along with the underside of the tub. All new everything
    1" body lift
    Built a new 350 for it, rebuilt SM 465, rebuilt 205
    12" lift, 10b/14b, 42" Swampers
    AutoMeter Guages

    Now it has a NV4500, Hydrauic clutch, 38" Radials (but I still have the 42's) 14" lift, 14 b front axle, Crossover, Hi steer, truck avenger.

    On the list for the summer is:
    TPI, Maybe paint and maybe get my whole transfer case, front driveshaft worked out.

    Re: Lets see some pics of your restored or \

    This is the latest project truck. As of now, it's all apart. Interior is gutted, new cab mounts all around the front. I have a new rear floor, drivers 1/4, and a rust free used gate for it. But have yet to put them on. Have everything i need, but time to do it! will post up a current pic, when it stops raining!

    Just started on her this week.

    I owned this truck about twenty years ago, I just found her in another state and brought her home. My poor baby is in an awful shape. :(
