Well I figured after reading other Project Threads for a while, it was time to make my own. I'm in high school, I have no money, and almost no time. I also have no real experience with this sort of work before, so it's all trial and error. So if this doesn't get updated often, you know why. But I'm working on my 1984 S10 Blazer. Plans currently are a 5/4 static drop, new paint (rattle can. I have no money, it's the best I can do lol), clean up the interior, get it back to full power, and that's it for now. Future plans are to bag it, body drop it, 350 swap and get it painted right

This is how it sat when I bought it. But for $650 I couldn't complain.
Another angle on that, you can tell it's dented pretty bad. The filler panel behind it was also rusted to hell.
I put a billet grille on it, because hey why not?
That's why not.
I have a friend working on fixing it though. Said he could do it, so I let him give it a shot.
Started preparing it for primer. When I bought it, half of it was primed, the other half? Not so much.
Picked up a filler panel from the Pick a Part.
Sanded and primed it.
Also got this Bumper.
It wasn't chrome, so I decided rather then repaint it black, I'd give it a brushed metal look and seal it so it doesn't rust. It's a work in progress.
After getting those, I found out the core support was damaged much more then it looked like. (It really is bad, pictures don't do it justice.
So I got a "new" one at the Pick a Part.
This was the worst part of it. Just a little surface rust.
Nothing a little grinding and paint couldn't fix.
Also just painted the whole thing. I know it won't be seen, but I couldn't help it
And that's as far as I am right now. I have some DJM 4" blocks ready to go in, but I'm waiting to get a bolt in notch and new shocks before I set that in place. I'll be doing DJM 2" spindles and DJM 3" springs up front. Thanks for looking
