Default PaRaSiTE'S 1991 K5 Restoration

I bought this 1991 K5 Blazer from the second owner in May. It has 109,000 miles on it and everything is original on it. It even still has the factory tape player/radio. My plan is to fix it up and take it to car shows this summer and cruise around. As it sits now, it needs a fuel pump, a tire, full exhaust system, brakes and rocker panels. It also needed an alternator, but I replaced it. It has a 350 TBI and a new 700R4 transmission. The Blazer was ordered in 1991 with every option possible (power mirrors, quad front shocks, power windows, locks, etc.) I will post pictures of the Blazer from the day I got it 'til the way it currently sits. The original owner of the Blazer died and his son sold it to the guy I bought it off of. The second owner only used it for two years to plow his property.

In the last few weeks, I dropped the gas tank to replace the fuel pump. Noticed the tank was leaking so I bought a new tank. Found the sending unit was really rusty up on top where the fuel hoses/lines connect. So I put a new sending unit and pump in the new tank and now it runs like a top. I also put on a 31" Uniroyal Laredo A/T in place of the old BFGoodrich that was on there. It was so worn it had a chunk missing out of it and you could see the belts inside. That's it for now really, I'm not working on it anymore just driving and enjoying it.
