Oh, I should probably explain the name. I'm going into my fourth year of school commuting from parents' residence ~45 miles round trip. Until I'm out of school, the blazer will remain mainly a pavement queen. Modifications/maintenance performed will be rather basic and boring.

However, I hope to document basic things along the way for the less knowledgeable! (*Disclaimer* I'm not saying I know a lot!)

Nothing wrong with being a "pavement queen".

Cool

Dipped the BowTie, thinking about doing all the chrome in the grille. Would appreciate some input on that idea.

Got new rubber, Goodyear Wrangler Radials 235/75r15 even though I had 235/70 on the door panel. not impressive except in Ohio a lot of Walmarts wont do this. Out the door for $415

Replaced the door hinge pins today, scratched some of the paint up. Should have taken the advice about taping the door where it passes the fender.
