    Hilarious. :rolleyes:

    I'm actually out of debt now, don't even owe the IRS anymore! that's why. :confused:
    Six years Principal left in my mortgage..:p:p

    Still trying to get Bonnie Blazer to a stopping point but right now? It breaks down every 4-6 weeks it seems and that is not good enough. :mad: He'll it's broke down Right Now!

    Can't focus on the Babe Ox just yet BUT! I have been testing the waters lookin to see what people think it's worth?
    I hear opinions from $2500-4000. MOST say 3 grand. Got double that in it.
    I really think it would fetch 10 finished in patina with working AC. It's good to have goals.
    Three grand?
    That isn't good enough either WHICH MEANS to you that i've already decided to keep workin on it lol.

    It seems wicked fun.

    Keep the faith yos. :cool: this thread ain't over yet!!

    Needs a new old tune inserted here... Hmmmm..

    Dedicated to Babe the Blue Ox.

    What?

    o_O :321:

    What?




    What?
    :)

    Very happy to report successful bumper installation! It's so pleasing because it went on very easily...and THIS IS the front bumper from the 75K5! Destiny Blazer has a few other parts standing by here ... Gonna use what I can /whichever is most appropriate. We can add 1975 K5 to the recipe of this truck's donors.
    Cheers ! The Blazer Destiny LIVES!!
    :cheers:
    I think it is awesome beyond comprehension so much GM stuff all fits one another.....up to a point anyways lol. She's also kickin in OG clear markers but I gotta go find em. I bought the screws already and everything!

    Thanks Veruca Salt for the appropriate jam .
    I'll update THIS post again later today. ;)



    For as used as this Silverado bumper is..it hung remarkably straight and easy.. Look! A little 5 pound sledge works wonders on bent brackets ya know? How much longer do you think I oughta whack on that high spot? :D

    20200914_161259_HDR.jpg
    that's dope! All round eye and shit?

    :gm:

    Gonna put the correct OE 1985 L98 valve covers back on the engine and


    20200914_171824_HDR.jpg
    MUCH MORE APPROPRIATE!
    Sleep Babe-y , sleep and be a sleeepurrr


    and I had to buy one of these. -
    The old one failed to fix to satisfaction and it's what we were waiting on. ;)

    Yeah that reminds me..I took the perpetually goin flat rear driver tire to Discount Tire. Forgot it had bead sealer in it already.
    The wheel is compromised and they glued it back together with more bead sealer but it wont last. Ive gotta take it down to Wheel Connection and get it repaired. The others are fine. Prolly have to drop a hunnert bucks to spare buying new wheels.

    I was messin with her a bit today. Fack it's such a great lookin truck.:( I tried to sell it to a couple of dudes at $4,000 and ..... Still have it.
    Dropped price to $2500 and.... Still have it.
    Took the gas tank out. That's what keep me from drivin it around. And the turn signals.
    I'll get them issues fixed and the price will go back to 4 grand when ppl start askin.

    Not goin any lower. Guess I'll keep workin on it.
    Ho-hum. :rolleyes:

    Oh, you are gonna get her going, be able to have a round eye as a backup to Bonnie, and keep her.

    You say No, but you know you mean yes.

    I mean, hell, look at all the time and effort on just the power booster?

    Worse comes to worse, drive it down to Texas in April for the meet and cut someone a deal ...

    :cool:

    Drive it to Texas?! Omg youre brave AF.
    Its got holes in the floorboard for cryin out loud! Its got a MR gasket fuel fump everybody else is scared of...I think they're fine..but damn.
    I spent $2000 at the shop and bought $500 worth of new brake parts = $2500.

    You funny. Say no mean yes.
    Lookin through the last page? Fack thats a good lookin truck....i'm so tried of lookin at it...in my driveway. If I ever saw it in a parking lot or on the jobsite it might be different..but fuck. Now i gotta spend ANOTHER Franklin on that shit. Damnit man! Im guessin thats what Wheel Connection is gonna want - might not be that bad. Either way im gonna have to find out.
    And really am preparing to switch gas tanks...gotta spend even MORE money on new fill hoses though. Fack.
    AND now my Blazer is a tricycle i am not only in a FOUL ASSED MOOD about that - im ALSO in a fricking Honda! LoL
    Al the meanwhile the Camaro I wanted to drive all summer is on jackstands in the garage.
    I just spent $50 on dudes honda AND THEN the next day he says he changed his mind.
    Too fuckin bad dude. I spent the money RIGHT THEN. yesterday. Grr.

    AND THEN the Oklahoma Tax Commission hopped on my dick . :suicide:

    They want money for 2018? Wtf?

    Oh yeah? Youre just sayin that because she's 20 something and they all are at that age..LOLOL :happy175:...no pores or wrinkles..youre preachin to the choir bro.:idiot:
    ANYWAYS! Ive got the FLOORpans bought already - for repair in the shop -after dildo said hed do it but he never did and then his douchebag boss never made him. We have all split ways.

    Far, far a ways like galaxies.
    Broken 25 year friendships.

    Whatever. I dont wish them too much ill.:boxing:

    Speakin of pans - the rollpan showed up. :nono:

    The alt. Camaro mechanic said HE WOULD do it but i'd have to drive the truck up there and of course it's not in one piece anymore.. Maybe virtual teenager will show up first. :shrug: not gonna hold my breath lol.
    Feel pretty lucky I found a guy that agreed to pull Blazer axles in the street! Do em both - I aint fuckin around.
