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

    update

    had some rust...



    fixed



    tailgate done need to fix alot of dents in that gate..



    unlike my original blazer im not using jeep wagoneer hinges for the suicide doors, they are bulky and arent appealing.. so im gonna go with the hidden hinges. soon to install... probly gonna sandblast that coating off of where i need to weld on them so i dont die from the fumes lol



    leaning towards doing these lights, 50's chevy truck lights updated with leds! i bought 4 so it would be 2 per side, just like a how a chevy HHR has them.



    had a rusty front lower part of the quarter and both rockers.



    all that cut out and replaced. i bent up some new rockers in a sheet metal brake that essentially shave the pinch weld




    passenger doors shaving has started.




    more to come soon.

    Since you had one corner of the roof almost cut off, that would have been a good time to chop it. :)
