    Well since I had a few minutes this afternoon with my little helper we hooked up the CB with PA. Once it was all said and done my boy had a blast talking into the PA. Needless to say when we take our first ride someone will be yelling at everyone.

    Well we got the engine swap done just have to put the fass fuel system in. Best part is I am leaving in the morning. So the trucks gear swap is on hold until I get home.

    So today my helper and I changed the headlight adjusters and ran a couple of screws under the hood for the PA horn.

    Since the truck is going to my buddies shop so we can gear swap when I get some time off I am gonna go ahead and throw in a cam, clean up the heads or vortec swap if that pans out(guy on the boat thinks he has a set and an intake he will give me).

    Anyone have any recommendations on a cam for more torque without swapping out my converter?

    Came across these snap shots of other parts for the Blazer that are ready to be installed. Just need to get to it at some point.
