    Hello everyone,
    I am Chris from the Cincinnati,OH area. I am 25yrs old.
    I have just purchased a 1978 Chevrolet Blazer K5 with fulltime 4wd from N.Kentucky with 78k original miles. It is rather bone stock with the exception of the motor swap from a 6cyl to a sbc 350 v8.

    PROJECT FLATLINE:
    I have started by removing the interior and plan on replacing the entire floor pan front to rear, wheel wells, inner fender wells, rocker panels.

    I will then sandblast the frame and protect all panels from anymore rust in the future. I plan on having this vehicle street bound within the next 3 months before winter sets in, as this will be my daily driver ( I drive a 2001 Ford Mustang GT Convertible and it doesn't fair well in snow.)

    This site looks great and I look forward to making new friends and sharing advise and experiences.

    /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif Now back to cutting out the floor!

    This ain't no place to be looking for women folk. But then again, being from Cincinnati, I imagine the pickings up there are pretty slim.................

    No, I plan on lifting it and riding on 35" rubber.

    I have a few plans already, but money is a issue and I just want to make sure it's ready by winter.

    I don't like the fulltime 4wd stuff at all, so I will be converting that.
