Re: My first blazer!!

got the firewall sanded and prepped. Sprayed a little self etch on it tonight. Ill paint it tomorrow. Also got the chassis all cleaned up and painted. Haven't painted the control arms yet as Im about to change ball joints, inner and outer tie rods and wheel bearings. That way i know their all new and good to go....On a side note i sold the tbi 350 already so thats good too, less clutter in the garage.

Re: My first blazer!!

garage lighting is killing the color in the photos. Im thinking the chevy orange on the engine has to go. It'll clash big time I'm afraid.....
