I started in on the task of repainting the Blazer, what a pain. I started last Wendsday and have been hard at it the last three nights. It's your typical 70's era Blazer with all the stainless trim on they body which I could never stand, not to mention it's was just another place for rust to rear it's ugly head so I removed it all. I then got rid of the door mirrors which had been rattling for about the last ten years and had actually started cracking the sheet metal. I removed the grill assembly and both bumpers door handels and locks and all the emblems. After removing the trim I found that the original color was two tone white and red under the curent black paint, which means with the original primer there is up to four layers of paint in some places. So I decided to strip the entire body to bare metal and start all over. The last thing I want to see later down the road once a scratch or chip is in it is another color.
