After several hours of scrapping old mud & grease, 1gallon of industrial Greased Lighning, and 2 cans of oven cleaner, the underside was ready and got the pressure washer. Needless to say a long shower was priceless that night.
Please talk to my wife and convince her to come out into the garage and help build our Blazer. I will be watching this build and keep up the great work.
