    Well im bored so i thought i would update this thread......

    i said i would have all my body work and paint done awhile ago but that didnt happen.
    I got a new job last july and that didnt mean much unitl a buncha dudes quit leaving them short handed and requireing me to be there 24/7. Then school started and there isnt nnnnnno time for the blazer at all. Im squeezing work on it whenever i can. Mostly 6-3 school 4-11 work. i get like 1-2 days off every schedule. and let me tell you those arent weekends. so really sense its getting fall and getting dark at like 6-7 thats only about 3 and a half hours to do shit. So its taking so much longer than expected. All ive pretty much been doing is smoothing and block sanding....preping for paint and cleaning.
    Im kinda regreat dioing the v8 because i have no time to built it or take it to get machined.
    I now relize and give maaaad credit to all you married/family guys with awsome self built vehicals.

    Not really and updates tho. got the door kits in and working..still difficult with no battery or real wires until swap is done. Caddy lights are looking real good and awsome now that its smooth and ready for paint almost. ill snap a few pics too, but dont expect much diffrence. its just now off jackstands. still not lowered still not painted. still not fast:(

    in time tho

    :bigthumb:

    yesterday was pretty nice so i tried out my new paint guns...

    i threw a coat on the hood and tailgate. both came out excelllent except the hood had some low and high spots that showed prodominantly because the black...whoops gonna have to do some work to it then...i think its from adjusting the suicide hood hinges and when it fell over a while ago. hehe

    tailgate looked rule good but you can see some slight tapering because i didnt feather out the filler enough after the frenched tag was installed. i can notice it put it would be hard to spot unless you were really looking over the body. im not worried about it right now, ill fix it when i redo the paint in a couple years.


    Also painted the taligate jam and it dont look to bad either.

    reason im painting fenders and doors seprate is because my tank is pretty small only like 25 gallon, it wont keep up with me when im painting the whole truck...found that out when i primered it. so im gonnd paint doors and gate seprate and totally mask and cover them up when i paint the body. that way no overspray and i wont have tiger stripping or hard lines when im done.


    yay! ive gotten so much done with these 3 days off work.


    carlise aint to far now

    true its coming but not fast enough!!!!!!


    nice again today so i repainted the front fenders and doors. so much better with the new guns, still a good bit of orange peel though.

    i havent settled on the idea that im gonna color sand and buff it.
