Default Medeiros 98 ZR2 Build

hey guys, so i've been around for awhile ( never really post, just search up the info i need, and ill say its a very very helpfully site, i'd like to say thanks to the site, and to everyone that helps everyone else ) back on topic, i've never started or done a build thread, so i figure with the way the blazer has come along, it was time!!!

first, i'll say that i didnt take pics as i was doing things, didnt think to! lol just jumped into the projects and fixed things lol but i will take some pics of what the blazer looks like as of now

list so far:

-Bought and installed Flowmaster 40 series muffler and a gibson 3" tip 105$ / 40$ had my brother do up the welding, he's a mechanic

-Bought and installed an auto start 55$ from canadian tire, then have to buy a little black box for 100$ ( needed it so it wouldnt mess with the transmission, something with it not shifting because of the auto start ) had to get help from my brother

-Bought MSD spark plug wires 8.5mm with E3 plugs ( dont remember the prices )

-Bought and installed trailer class 3 hitch 150$ dad and i put it in

-Bought a roof basket from princess auto, able to hold 250lbs, only weighs 21lbs!!! :O aluminum so no rust! 100$ on sale 50% off!! easy to put on yourself

-Bought and fixed a used brush guard for 125$ from kijiji, sanded it down painted it flat black with rust paint, then sprayed over it with some rubberized rock guard ( i was very happy with this deal and the turn out! ) brother and i put it on, had to make a few new wholes

-Bought and installed a kenwood deck and speakers all around, about 650ish$ i think. was proud of myself because i did the install myself, and i have never done this before, turned out good i think

-The deck is a Kenwood excelon KDC-X696/ has bluetooth, USB, AUX port, love it
-Speakers are kenwood, dont remember which kind

-Bought a cold air intake with a K&N cone 65$ off of ebay!! easy install

-Sanded down the tire carrier and painted it flat black 8$ for the rattle can lol / also had to get new plastic peices for the arm, it had a lot of play in it 18$ for 2

-Sanded down and painted the back bumper and corner peices ( was scratched and peeling ) flat black as well

-fixed the rattle of the plastic parts inside example: around the back speakers, and back hatch ( used the sticky foam peices )

-Bought and installed a gauge cluster off of ebay 25$
