    [project]third times a charm??

    well so it starts.....

    heres my truck for those who dont know it...









    after much debate, ive come to a some what of a decision. its time to do everything right and 100% how i want it.

    so what does that mean... well it means literally starting from scratch.. will it look the same, yes and no.. the color, wheels, and some elements will be retained, but a lot of additional changes and mods will be done.. as to what they are heres a short list, but it could change... different tail lights, maybe sfbd, rear bumper, really i dont have a complete plan, its gonna be as i go. would i like it done for next show season? yes is it likely no.. but we shall see.. so instead of taking my truck off the road, and losing complete interest, the choice of a new body and possible frame will be used to retain my truck into one piece as long as possible.

    well here we go... the new truck...





    after about 8 hours of teardown. im left with this.. interior gutted completly, motor trans, gas tank, front end, all glass, and whatever else stripped off the cab.





    tomorrow the shaving and such will start... and more to follow....

    Since some parts will probally be transfered to the new blazer, it may be sold off as a project or something? What are the plans for this?

    Thats funny stuff.


    The bitter after-taste of a poor quality job will last far longer than the sweetness of that cheap price!
