Re: My first blazer!!

You guys painting at home are killing me. Jealous! From reading threads on it I think I could do this (or at least would try) if I had a garage.

Re: My first blazer!!

So clean. Even in primer. Everyone gives me ****for converting mine to 2wd but I think there's not much sweeter than a lowered blazer with the top off

Re: My first blazer!!

crazy to think if you combine the ls in the blazer and the lt in my c10 the horsepower would be pretty close to what the Hellcat is bringing to the table!
