Hola from DFW

Hey guys, new to the forum and 4x4's in general. I just inherited my dad's 1985 K5 Blazer that he bought in 1988. He was talking about letting go to a junkyard but I told him that I would take it off his hands if it was all the same. He bought it when we were living in New York so it does have a good share of surface rust but luckily vey little of it is rusted through. So far I can only see one or two spots on the doors and I have already found replacements for those.

Anyways I'll probably be starting a build thread here soon. I've already sanded the hood down to bare metal and I have it primered and sealed and am probably going to start painting next week. I'm not trying to make this thing show car worthy by any means but at least want all of the rust taken care of.

This is probably gonna be at least a 2 year project because I don't have bucketfuls of extra money to throw at it but hope to have fun with it none the less. The motor still runs strong but I plan on rebuilding the drive train and 4 wheel drive system. With what I don't really know because I am new to 4x4's but hopefully can learn enough from the forums and/or internet when I am ready.

Well there's my intro and hello again everyone.

Dustin.
