    Hey Paul,
    I was lucky enough to get a blazer with an intact floor (rust seems to have concentrated on the rocker boards and the wheel wells). So the floor was only cleaned and painted. Sorry that I'm no help on replacing the floor ...
    Good luck

    MuleMaster,

    What is it costing you to get the inside and outside painted?

    Toad,
    I couldn't tell You the exact price for the painting on the inside. My friend Martin, The Magician did all the work (take the body off the frame, new sheet metal, frame resto, body and suspension lift, and so on including reassembling) for a fixed price (He wouldn't do that again, he didn't make any profit). We agreed upon $6500.00 including all the material he needed. Please keep in mind that labor cost is pretty much higher here in Europe. The paint shop charges me with another $2100.00 for the outside paint.
    Yes, having a Blazer is quite expensive over here in Austria, especially if You know that fuel is at $3.80 per gallon!
