    thinking of the total, that door jamb and firewall look mighty fine for being caved in. I cant wait to see it back together.

    You know, for what its been through the truck is still looking pretty good :D

    But it still a bit tweeked. The accident(s) have taken their toll in one way or another...but also the v8 and high torque have done their magic as well.

    I have the truck back at my house, mostly together. Gotta put the door glass in, along with the airdam and billet grille....and make some minor adjustments. Gonna get to it all day tomorrow...

    yea mine got some war wounds too, like the front bumper is very stupid since it meeting a trailer hitch a while back. It looked straight with one bumper on it, but with the bravada bumper and cover its way crooked. Also driving an inch off the ground is bad for your skid plate and other things lol. A lot of days i wish it wasnt so low, its got dents in the floor from the rear end hitting lol.

    how do you like the 235/40s upfront. My truck needs a new set of tires and been thinking about just doing new rims too. Id like to keep the front tires around that size and been looking at 215/45s, and 225/40s

    The Kuhmo's that I had up there were good. They didnt rub whatsoever even at full lock. It seems, although I have to measure to verify, that the new Sumi's are somewhat wider but the same size. Some tires are cut more square than others....

    With that said, I wish I went with a 10" wide rim in the back. Next rim change I'll do that for sure. Really want the Eagle 225s. I used to have a hookup with Eagle and get the wheels wholesale thru a friends shop, but he's out of business and we dont talk much.

    Not so great weather all day with some rain. I didnt get anything done, or even pull the truck out of the garage.

    Still raining.

    Just got back from the junkyard. I somehow lost the metal guide that goes in the window track. Got that along with some miscellaneous screws.

    It was sad, there used to be 30+ 82-93 S-10/Blazers there. Now theres about 10. Only 2 pickups.

    Those parts are looking smooth, man! I hope you get some time to put it all back together.

    Just this past weekend I went to my parents house to clean out my Blazer. I'm just scrapping it but seeing yours really makes it that much harder.

    Seeing you get work done on yours makes me want to get something done with mine. It's kind of taken a back seat to other projects. Your Blazer is lookin good though!

    Interior i have to put back together. Door Panels, back pieces, headiner

    Engine I will be cleaning up too. Nothing major - pulling the heater core, getting rid of those lines....making a heater box delete panel. Wire loom, etc.....pretty much done! Garage kept now, hopefully I'll never have to do it again.
