    What\'s everyone doing for the Fourth???

    Well, like most of us, I've got tomorrow off. I'm pretty ticked that it wasn't a three day weekend as I could use a break. But oh well, a day off is a day off. Anyway, what are y'all doing on your rigs tomorrow?
    I'm finally getting the 454 ready to be dropped into the Blazer. I'll put the new gaskets on it, paint it (Chevy orange of course) and I'll pick up some new motor mounts and make a list of all the little things I'll need to pick up. I just thought I'd share as it's been a while since I've worked on my rig and I'm pretty psyched about putting some time into. My stinkin' Caprice has taken up a lot of my time lately.
    Happy Fourth to y'all!!!!!

    It's not what you buy, it's what you build!

    Tommorow is a day for the ocean Gods. I'm taking the Waverunner up to Oxnard and do a little wave jumping. After that it's the drive back to the 106 degree San Fernando valley. I can't wait til' Canback has soft tops for the 1st gen Blazers so I don't keep getting fried.
    Regardless, everybody have a fun and safe 4th. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Yeah, alcohol and fireworks have always been my favorite combo. My wife tells the neighbor to not even mention the word fireworks around me when I've been drinking.

    Re: What\'s everyone doing for the Fourth???

    They just closed both my offices (of course they couldn't tell me earlier, so i could go to the other and get some work done...), So I'm hoping to bail early, hit my favorite junkyard and start moving with the onboard air, then tomorrow morning, try the balljoints again! Then wife and kids to see fireworks. Off until monday, so probably taking my kids to sesame place thursday or friday... Family stuff startin' to cut into my K5 time...j/k

    Good luck dropping the big block in!!!

    Wow... I get to sit around working on my final paper for English (summer school) and then at 5:30 I'm gonna work... I get double pay, so that almost makes it worth going ;)... and then I should be done just in time to meet the 'rents and possibly brother and his wife for fireworks show at the park... this year's supposed to be a big one :D

    79 K5 Blazer Cheyenne.... That's all I have to say about that.

    Re: What\'s everyone doing for the Fourth???

    Well, since my worldwide fishing tour got cancelled, July 4th was catching the parade in Red River, NM and then an attempt to get up to Goose Lake; but I'm going to stay in the beautiful San Joaquin Valley in the chilly triple digit temps and work my real job.

    Providing that the monsoon bothering me goes away, I'm going to install my spiffy new coilover steering damper and see how much difference it makes - Then go up on the mountain and consume mass quantities of barley based beverages while watching the fireworks.

    If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all[​IMG]

    I'll be driving all over the bay area looking for my 60.
    And, as always, I'll be having Blazer withdrawals until I find one.
    Then it's down to Monterey for the rest of the weekend.




    That's because I'm the devil.
