Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Wow. I was not in on your thread when it began. Just read through the whole thing now. hard for me to believe that you learned to weld at the beginning of this project. You have a very good vision for things and you're very inventive. Now shut all of that off, so that you can get it done, at least usable and drivable and then you can mod it from there, haha. I really respect how you used your enthusiasm and ideas to develop as a fabricator.

Thank you for taking the time to go through the whole thread!!! Yes, I started welding just before getting the Blazer. I took my time and learned but it was natural for me. I do plan on keeping at it and getting this thing on the road and enjoy it. Should be a fun little Blazer when I am done!!!

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Well guys, I am at a crossroads. It is either pay for a storage unit to put the Blazer in or consider selling it. The price of keeping it will be high but trying to build it and pay for storage may be too high.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

These decisions are not easy, with everything going up I can imagine so has storage units. If you decide to sell I'm sure someone would give that Blazer a good home. Beautiful ride!!

LOL, that is a valid idea. It looks like she is going to be in someone else's living room.
