    Ok ive got an 88 fullsize blazer that i started to convert to a 4 speed but i dont hav ethe time to finish it, i wanted to see if any of you guys know of or work at a shop that i could bring it to. all it needs is to have th epedals put in and the linkage hooked up, and a fule line needs to be replaced. but if im going to bring it to a shop i might as well get the rust taken care of and some electrical things i havent had a chance to track down yet. anybody know someplace that does that kinnda work, i dont need, or even want a show truck but i do want it to be nice enuff that i dont have to be embaresed to drive it or have people wonder if it even works. the truck is in tobyhanna PA and would obviously have to be towed so thats the only limiting factor of where i bring it is how much it will cost me to get it there. I got ripped off bad on this thing and have allready spent way too much money on it so i cant be spending a crazy amount on it. that being said though i certanly dont mind paying for good work. thanks allot in advance.

    Chris

    do you have the pedals? the rest of the parts? are the drive shafts hooked up and the trans all mounted? not to many shops in this area will touch it, without charging you out the, well you know. You work at Tobyhanna? I got friends that do. There is a 4x4 shop my friend owns but i think he's booked up. If it's just the pedals and little stuff, I might be able to help. I'm just past scranton. You must make time for your K5!

    i have the pedals, supposedly all i need to do is get the original bracket out which im not sure how to do and widen it, the drive shaft isnt in yet but its all ready been shortened and all i just have to hook it up.

    i wouldn't use the original bracket, i would just get a complete unit with clutch pedal from a junk yard. or i think i know someone on here that has one. if you take it out might as well put a clutch unit back in. they take time (not too much) to take out but there not bad. if you need help with the pedals i could take a ride down. so throw in the drive shaft!
