this is the story of how my oil change snowballed into me gutting the interior today lol.

changed the oil, noticed my front u-joint is toast, put some trans seafoam in and was going to run into town to get a new u-joint and cycle the seafoam through. the passenger seat isnt latching so i was going to try to fix that issue so i could take the gf in with me since she hasnt rode in it yet because of the latch, unbolting the seat it looks like the floor is broke so out comes the carpet and onto stripping the interior lol. good news is the floor is fine but i need to get a new latch for the passenger seat.





found a few spots of rust, one was on the door jamb



wire wheeled it and shot some primer, by the time im done cleaning up the exterior its gonna look polka dotted through the winter from the holes ill weld up and primer.



and first time with the top off




i also ordered a windstar dual fan assembly from work, had to get it shipped in, i could have gotten one in a day for $170 but ill wait a week for it for $86 brand new dorman part.

havnt really done anything to the blazer for a while now, just driving it to and from work and replaced a few parts here and there for up keep. but i did get something done on it today.



*dont pay attention to the hay, i use this thing like its a truck*



it took two people to roll the window up and down so i just left it down since i was in and out of there to much by myself. plus the latch was a pain being on the inside and when you have bales of hay against the latch it makes it kinda hard to open.







you can see here that chevy made the blazers with all the nessecary bolt holes for a pickup tailgate to bolt on.





and it was just that simple, unbolt one, bolt the other one on.
