Yes sir, it is running good... Everything is running good except for the dang exhaust leak sounds bad. I was going to take it to a custom exhaust shop they told me they could take a look at it and see what they can do. From what i told them over the phone, the multiple gaskets, tries, off centered cut ports, etc, and processes I went through they think I may need a new set of headers.

I just haven't had any dang time to take it to them. I do however find some time to take it out mainly at night and on the weekends.

After I get the headers/exhaust leak figured out I will be adding a nice new set of wheels & tires!!!! I love my painted rallies but I want a wider wheel/tire and Like the 15x10 wheels and 35x12.5 tires. I think the stance should look a lot nicer. I almost did wider 15x10 rallies from stockton but thought I would "update" the wheels and bring a little closer to the new school just a bit.

Mickey Thompson Black Classic Lock wheels

with the Baja MTZ Radial tires
http://www.jegs.com/i/Mickey-Thompson/672/5254/10002/-1

My goal is to stay close as possible to the current look and adding the wide tires. What do you think about the tire/wheel choice?

Thanks MudMan! I definitely know a lot more then when I first bought it. I have at least the basic understanding of the parts of an engine from watching my buddy build mine. It was a great way to learn and love the truck so far!

Re: Some guys have skills and some have bills

Good choice on the tires and rims, should really enhance the looks and pull it all together, just used those rims on a 77 F250 I lifted and they worked out as a real clean look, kind of stealth the black but still not stock. I will post some pic's of my truck I just bought back in a few days. It is a 71 K15 with 35 SSR radials and a 454 with over 500hp. Just couldn't let it go had to trade my 2000 Trans Am I just got a month ago for it again. At least the last owner a good buddy of mine paid for all the work, so I know who built it. Good luck on the truck, one of my most favorites.

Re: Some guys have skills and some have bills

Havent updated anything in a long time... Ive just been driving the beast around. After several attempts with various gaskets finally got the headers seal. It was the headers ot the gaskets. One of the ports was slightly uneven. So welded it closed a bit and wallah, it got worked out. That was sometime back and never did get my wheels and tires. They are still coming, just not now. As soon as the current tires wear out.

Re: Some guys have skills and some have bills

That Blazer is a beauty, really nice. Price is cheap, up here in Northern Canada we would pay more like $25K plus for it the way it is. Should sell easy being so nice.

Question about your bikini top. Did you make it yourself or purchase one?
