I sold my s10 Blazer with a brand new 3k plow on it plus salary for my wife's ring. I told her that since I had to sell my plow truck for her ring she has to shovel the driveway in the winter, but that never happened...:)

Ok, just an update... I'm still not married :lol: (just figured that would fit in this conversation well), my car was dropped off at the body shop about a month ago, he is hoping to have the bay finished and painted, and all of the rust/rot on the rest of the body finished in the next week or so. The body will be sprayed this spring when I get some more money. Haven't decided if the fenders are going to be pulled yet or if that is going to wait. Either way this project isn't abandoned, just moving slow as things have come up.

Ok, didn't get to take any pictures, camera was dead. The front fenders are pulled, the bay is shaved, plates are being welded onto the flat spots, where the ac stuff used to be on the pass. side, and where the abs pump used to be on the drivers side. Haven't decided how much more we are going to do. The car is mainly going to be looks so I want it to be clean, but I don't want to get it to the point that I don't want to drive it. You guys have any other suggestions?

lets see some pics, I would like to see what you've done to the bay. It's easier to suggest things when we know what your talking about, lol.

Just got a smoking deal on some xxr 006's for the vert. I'd take some pics but you all know what they look like from yoshi's ride. Car is in storage for the winter.
Picked up a different motor from white325is on the tech with a mls gasket already installed and the head gone through. Block is all painted and clean. Haven't given up on this project, just slow progress.
