Re: Added a Blazer to the family

Don'y know how much time I can spend on it right now, I need to build a motor or find a good deal on a built motor for my Nova. But I figured I better go ahead and pick up the blazer while I had the chance.

I think I saw a post about rust repair? I am glad you were able to do that and still save the original paint look. It looks great!
