S10 Blazer $200 Project Ep. 1 - Resurrection
A new video mini-series going through this 1988 S10 Blazer 4x4 project. Bought for $200 and saved from the demolition derby, this truck went through a lot more than I expected in the six months this video covers. Hundreds of hours of work, and several times the buying price in parts to fix up this junker. Practical? Sensible? Probably not, but a satisfying, frustrating, extended project and an excuse to hang out and fix some things with friends. I want to be clear that this isn't some racecar build, some fancy restoration, or even building this truck (SUV?) for anything in particular. I wanted a cheap project and even though this ended up costing more than I expected (total is around $1000 by the end of this video), still not half bad in the end. This is almost more of a photo album/collage, composed largely of still pictures, but hopefully comes across as more interesting than your great aunt's slideshow. As teased at the end of the video, episode 2 sees the truck getting a Chevy 350 swap. People talk about how easy it is all the time, should be a piece of cake, right? *Collar pull* And don't worry, the 280z series is continuing soon. This is sort of a side-project, maybe made more for my own entertainment than anyone else. Sean was out of the country for three weeks and then both of us were sick for a few more. I still sound a bit congested in this video. Special Thank You to Leon, Sean, and Rob for all of the help with this truck through thick and thin.
