(project) My Username

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

(I've also been updating this on Blazin Low for a bit. http://www.blazinlow.com/forum/showthread.php?t=77472 )

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

Update Time. I put down some paint on the hood today. It's just a first coat, so yes it looks a bit... bad. But that's just for now, I'm going to clear up all the imperfections in the hood, and lay down a few more coats.



Pulled the hood, so I didn't have to mask. Also need to get off the cowl, but I'm not sure how yet.


Just the hood drying off in the sun, after wiping it down.


My "paint-booth". aka some plastic sheeting from Home Depot. Told you, I have no money :P


And here's how it looks. Rather lined, and crappy at the moment. But it's a first coat, so I'm forgiving myself for that. (Yes that's the light coming off my one headlight. lol)


And here's a crappy dark picture.

So that will be the top half of the car, a deep glossy blue. The bottom half will be flat black. And I'm taking my time with this paint job, because it is rattle can, and I want it to look as good as possible. I'm expecting a lot of false starts. But hey, I do what I can

Yeah I saw that in your thread. Those asshole kids , sorry to see that. But yeah it's looking pretty good. I did some flat black today, and changed my mind on exactly how I'm doing the two tone lol

Alright so here's one picture of what my friend and I got done tonight.



The new core is sitting in the truck right now, it's just not bolted up. We called it a night and decided to finish up tomorrow. From there, it's just putting in the filler panel and bumper, finishing paint, and then it's suspension time

Ah that's shitty man, sorry to hear that. If you ever catch them, you'll have to put those knuckles to use

As far as the two tone goes, I decided to go all flat black with two blue stripes running down the middle. If it doesn't look as good as it does in my head, I'll scrap that plan, but I like the flat black enough to put it on 90% of the body lol

Speaking of which:
Progress!

And with the suspension, I'm doing a static 5/4 for now. I'll be bagging it one day, but that may be a ways off lol

Re: (project) My Username

Alright so I may be double posting, but here's what I got done today. Might as well post it all in the build thread.



Front end? Done. That new support is in there. I stuck the hood on just to keep myself from getting fined during the week. Association in the community doesn't like me working on my car, and such lol.

I also discovered today that the wire from my battery to my alternator is nothing more then a speaker wire. I think that has to go pretty soon, might also explain why my engine feels so choked most of the time.

Tiny update time. You know how I said I had a speaker wire from the battery to the alternator? Yeah well no more. It's not a big 3 upgrade to 1/0 awg, but at least this is safe. lol


Before. The white wire is the wire in question here.


That's in comparison to the 4awg I bought. Seriously unsafe. The guy who owned the car before me made some bad choices.


And in. Pretty boring update.

Also picked up some new spark plugs today, no idea when the last tune up on the car was, so I figured I'd start on that.

Safety, and the fact my truck won't catch on fire now. When I looked closer at the wire later, the wire was melting in places. Also maybe I won't have to jump my car now every time I want to get it going, because it'll actually charge lol

Oh man, they have it out for me anyways... They send me fines for any little thing about my truck or yard. My neighbors down the street work on at least 3 different cars at any given time, he says they've never got any fees at all for having them up on stands for a week.

But I look forward to hearing them complain about my next project.

Re: (project) My Username

You think thats bad lol if I even park my vehicle infront of my own driveway in my condo for 15mins, the douche bag on the end takes a pic of the license plate than calls a tow truck. I've had to run out and move my vehicle 3 times now as a tow truck was rolling in.

Wow, that guy needs to get a hobby or something, what a douche bag. But that sucks man, at least they've never really managed to tow it

100mph may be a little... optimistic. heh my car struggles with 60 right now. Needs a tune up badly. But hey for 310k miles, it's not so bad. And yeah, I have a few updates.


Tail gate is now painted. That was only after the first coat, it'll look better after a few I'm sure. Slowly but surely its getting to be one color.

Now for the fun stuff I'm working on.


This is how the interior looked when I got it. That wood panel on the door? That's hardwood flooring... I love the last owner's mods


Pulled out the cluster panel.


Sanded it down to get rid of as much texture as possible.



Masked it then primed it.

And now I'm waiting for the primer to dry so I can go smooth sand it. I'll update again as soon as I'm finished with this. lol Hopefully this turns out well. Otherwise I'll have ruined a cluster panel.

That's exactly of what I was thinking when I saw it. All I need now is a concrete floor lol. I have no clue what to do about it yet either, if I take it out. The deeper I dig into this car, the more I have to do lol.

Well it's cheap stuff, but it's not $1. It's (to be perfectly honest) Rustoleum rattle can paint from Auto Zone Now before anyone says it's total shit paint, I know. It's just until I have real money to put in this car. The faded nasty tan color just wasn't doing it for me lol.



Speaking of which I put the first coat on the entire car tonight. Yeah it's a little lined, but it needs a second coat, and then a really fine sanding to get rid of dust nibs. But otherwise, paints pretty much done. Then to the interior, and sound system. Then the 5/4 drop.

In case I hadn't made this clear before, the deadline to finish all the first round of mods (ie. pre-bagging) is September. Long story short, I get my license back then, sooo.... *cough*

Re: (project) My Username

Yup, I did the best I could given time constraints and lack of knowledge. I'm not going to say it looks amazing, but it looks alright, so it'll do for now.

When I really tear it apart and bag it (someday... lol) that's when I'll put the serious time and effort for an awesome paint job.

Thanks! And I do too, they've really grown on me. When I first got it, all I could think about was replacing the Camaro's with 20s. But now I love them too haha

Seriously, that would make my life so much easier I looked into setting up some system like that in my garage, but funds wouldn't allow that. Someday... lol

Ah yeah, it sucks man. That white Mercedes you see in the background of some of my pictures, it had no AC for a few years. It was miserable in the summer. And it's white . It just hit 100 for the first time a few days ago, I went to get something out of my car, and it was like opening an oven lol

Thanks! And good to hear about the Wal Mart prices, I am looking to save money. I didn't know they had it so much cheaper. lol

-----------------------
And I guess I have a small update for everyone, just no pictures. Dash covers are mostly back together in the car. Tried getting the new headunit in, but one of the back speakers suddenly isn't getting sound. Either the harness is bad, or the wiring is much more shitty then I thought. As is, there's about 6 wires leading no where from the slot for the headunit lol.

Also if anyone is interested in buying an old Pioneer head unit, let me know. I have it and the harness. I'm not looking for much, just trying to recoup some costs, and get some money for my front springs. PM me if you want pictures and more info.

Re: (project) My Username

So I have no update on the Blazer sadly. It's just sitting all sad like, waiting for me to do something. I need to replace the battery, and possibly the altenator to try to get some more electrical issues sorted out. But none of that will be done for a while.

Why?



It's not mine. I've been asked to pull it apart, and get rid of that nasty shade of purple. They want it in a nice shade of flat black. Hmm... wonder where they got that idea? If anyone is curious, it's a Honda Shadow. Not sure on what year, but it's got roughly 400k miles on it.

Also in other news I thought about going with a theme for this truck finally. I had been thinking about going with Rat Rod sort of theme with the truck for quite a while. But I hate rust, and couldn't do that to my poor blazer. And then I saw a few Island theme trucks. So that's what I'm doing.



I found this. It's a Jeep decal, from the Islander special edition. I know it's for a Jeep, but I'm kind of digging it. Just to get the ball rolling. Not sure how extreme I'll go with the theme, but that's the plan. What do you all think? lol I also have a plan for my currently blue hood to fit into the theme.

Re: (project) My Username

Not sure what the hell I was thinking with the Islander thing. Kind of an embarrassing post. Oh well, I'll just pretend I never said that, and I'll get on with my build.

Right so it's been a while since I've updated. My truck has been suffering from some extreme electrical problems. I'm taking the truck into a shop today to see if they can sort out some of the electrical problems, I've been working on it for weeks and only seemed to make problems worse. Hopefully they'll get the car back to full power too.

I also got myself a new toy.



The compressor is temporary, we just happened to have that one in the garage. It's way to small for the impact wrench, but I'll be buying a new one soon, much larger. I'm loving having the wrench though, it's making life easier. I also might buy myself a spray gun, and give my car a proper paint job someday.

Also I've been working on this for the most part.



Tank is primed as you see. Bike is still in pieces in my garage, but it's progress. The person I'm doing this for keeps giving me new things to do for the bike. I did manage to sort out the electrical on the bike though, a lot simpler then on my blazer.

I also just ordered a new Bumper and Grille from LMC. My scrap yard bumper was destroyed by accident. But my dad agreed to buy my a new Chrome one in exchange for what happened. So finally my truck will have a proper front end.

That's it for this update, not many pictures sorry lol.

Hate to keep posting after myself, but I have updates. Real updates regarding the Blazer for once.

Sooo this happened today.



Inside it contained





And that's it. I literally just got them in, so I'll put it all on later. But hey it looks good, and finally my truck will look right again.
