    Good work. It's going to look a lot better when it's all one color, even if it's just primer. What did your neighbors say when you had the whole driveway full of parts when you were taking the bopdy off?

    nothing. a couple of people swung by giving it props and trying to find out wat was going on. but the whole thing from buying the body and bringing it home and stripping it and putting it on the frame all took one weekend.

    everything was cleaned up afterward and da blaze was put in the garage. so no one really noticed

    UPDATE: 03/26/2009

    Finished doing the tailgate and the passenger side. After I was all done with the tailgate. a buddy of mine saw that there was warpage on the tailgate. It was caused last week from when I was trying to fill in the holes. So all that work went down the drain since I am just going to get a new tailgate.

    Going to make a smooth cowl. Next thing to buy is a new grill. I also just ordered some Colorado tails and now I have to find a Colorado at the junkyard in order to cut out the buckets to use on my blazer.

    The warpage came from me trying to fill in those holes too quickly. My fault on that one. I knew better that to go to fast but i was just trying to fill that sucker up. :nono:

    I am just going to replace the tailgate and do it again. Its only like 50 bucks to get a new tailgate.

    Cut up and welded the pieces for the shaved cowl. I am done with it for now until i get some body filler. The door handles are now smooth and ready for body filler as well. Sanded most of the body line all around the blazer but the sanding disk that I was using for inside the body line wore out and I could not find any in the small town of 29 Palms. Plans for tomorrow will be to install the roll pan and finish up more of the body line.

    What should I use: Rage body filler or some kind of metal filler. I have just heard of metal filler but haven't tried any.

    Finished sanding the body line all around and got to tack weld up everything. Now the time consuming part of having to do all that body line awaits. Tack welded the roll pan up and there is a bigger gap on the passenger than the driver side in between the rollpan and tailgate. Just going to roll up the inner lip of the rollpan to fix that. Make it look flush.

    Next week I will begin doing the body drop. Decided to go ahead and do it now. Just ordered the front tubs from SD.com Need to look up some more info on traditional body drops and about z'ing the front and back.

    Got a bunch done today. Did the initial cuts for the body dop. 4" all around. Frame is level with the pinch. Now I have to cut some more in order to make the area around the door slanted. Also started the initial cuts for the Colorado tails on the pasenger side. Will have to wait till next month for more work since I have a bunch of training coming up including the rifle range.
