Well, i finally paid off the ole K5 so she's all mine mine mine. Now comes the fun stuff...i think. I was going to take it in to a body shop and see how much rust repair would run me. Then i got to thinking that 2k+ on rust repair would be 1/3 the cost of the blazer and that just hurts /forums/images/icons/frown.gif So i figured it was time to learn to weld. Any recomendations as to what to look for in a welder? I don't plan on building roll cages or anything so complex. I just want to be able to fix all the rust in the K5, maybe build an occasional bumper, you know, typical use of a welder. Also, where are the main trouble spots for rust on K5's? So far i've got rust in the following locations... seat mounts both sides, passenger side seat belt bolt, behind both rear tail lights, rockers, inner front fenders. Where else should i look for this nasty stuff? I must admit i'm a bit skeptical of my ability to do this stuff, but if you all can do it so can i right? /forums/images/icons/wink.gif Thanks in advance for any advice.
