Boxing that in was a lot of work for a speaker but it also gave me a place to hide the wires for the factory doors inside. I'm going to start on the other door tonight then on to the sliders.

I got the drivers slider doen today, I still have some fender trimming to do but for the most part it's complete. It was a lot more difficult than I expected and I'm not looking forward to doing the other side, now I have some idea how hard it was for Chuck to install Eryc's after it was all beat up.

Looks really good! Yeah doing the sliders after the body is mangled sucks!

Sliders are done., also been doing some fender trimming. I'm going to try and paint this thing tomorrow, since I'm not worried about body work all I need to focus on is prepping the surface so the paint will stick.



Planning ahead for bigger axles and some 40's

Cut some more out of the front fenders and started prepping for paint. The next pics you see of this thing it will be dark OD green.

It's green now and this custom paint job includes runs, drips and errors. Next I need to get some flat black paint for the grill and wheels.

Thanks Eryc, OD green wasn't my first choice but I wanted it one color and easy to take care of after rubbing it against the rocks.

like i said man i am really looking forward to seeing your rig in person. 
i'll also tell you that as much as lee hates blazers, he sure does talk a lot about yours.... but of course if he built one, it would be better than all of ours.  his exact words when he was here the other day
just all bad luck at this point.  whatever is the worst that can happen will

Looking good Clint. Still can't believe that you are going to bounce that thing off of the rocks after all that hard work. :headbang:

Well in my defense since Eryc seems to only mention one sentence out of a hundred in that conversation. I told him how I think a blazer should be built for the AZ trails and that it would be better then any of these blazers you know, the ones that belong to you guys. The tub would be narrowed 12 inches in the middle the frame would be scrap metal tubed out chassis built within the new tub front clip would have a slight dove in the rear dovetail in slightly and approach and departure angles wont be a problem. I could go on but am done. Clints blazer is bad a** and is great for driving to the desert and going anywhere in the back country with plenty of room for gear. My Jeep is a piece of sh** when it comes to that type of wheeling. AZ rock trails is where my Jeep shines blazers on the other hand, well just ask Elhm how his blazer is holding up to the abuse. Enough said.

I guess you are right. I give you sh** all the time but I don't ever take anything out of context to make you look like an a** on the Internet open forums either. So be it. I already said I get it. It's done.



Back to our daily lives now. Onto Clints build. :thumbup:
