    Actually the shop is my friends and I did alot of the work myself. We worked very hard together to get it done right the first time.yes I don't trust my blazer to just anybody

    Keith its no biggy. I didnt do all the work on mine either. I don't know how to do paint and body work or the welding. I do not know upholstery or have the shop for it. I haven't a clue on doing gears and lockers and what I have read they don't reccomened doing it in your driveway either. So what I don't know or wanted to practice on my K5 with something new. and mine looks the way it does because I had judgement to goto the pro's when I felt I couldn't do it
