I have an '83 Blazer (350, 700R4, NP208) that I purchased a few years ago for what I thought was a pretty good price. About a year ago I had to pull it off the road to do some major work to it; it had a blown head gasket, the 700R4 wouldn't shift past 2nd and the transfer case would pop out of low, just to name a few things. So, I am simultaneously rebuilding the Engine, Transmission and Transfer Case myself. Also, I'm stripping the interior and using Line-X or Rhino throughout and changing the interior and exterior color. My question is: Am I being brave for undertaking such an endeavor, am I just dedicated to my Blazer, or am I really being stupid sinking this much money into it? I am attempting to document some if the things I'm doing, and I'd like to hear suggestions and feedback about the decisions I'm making. Here's a more detailed list of what I plan on doing: * Rebuild 350 * Purchase new / rebuilt heads and possible intake * Investigate converting to TBI (must stay legal in Calif) * Rebuild 700-R4 (Manual and video are on their way!) * Fix NP208 (Overhaul kit and fork pads are on their way) * Sandblast undercarriage and cover with POR-15 * Sandblast engine compartment and either paint or cover with POR-15 * Sandblast interior floor and cover with Line-X The rest I think I'll save until after I get this beast back on the road!
