so it didnt look like this for long took off the moldings painted the stock wheels black put some stickers on blah blah blah i had taken it 4 wheeling twice and broke my driveshaft doing a hill climb with a bump on the bottom so i hit the bump goin about 25 to 30 mph well when i hit i heard a clunk but hey i was halfway up this huge hill so i didnt stop and kept goin when i made it to the top got out and saw my front driveshaft layn at the bottom of the hill so thats when i decided to step it up went home ordered a rough country lift 15x8 pro comp wheels with 4.5 back spacing and 31 inch kumho all terrains

Looks good man!!!
Do whatever you like, as you said YOU'RE the one driving it.
I like the base paint scheme on the beamer, I think that could look cool on a blazer off road. They anitqued am old truck on Trucks once, looked pretty good.

thanks man that bmw is legendary with bmw owners and the whole stance scene what he did was strip all paint to bare metal then surface rusted the whole thing then grinded the top layer off and rubbed diesel oil on it to give it that look im not into the whole bmw thing or whatever but the work done to that car before it got destroyed in a garage fire was just amazing

Default update

well after weeks of deciding on a color ive decided a tan/khaki color for the blazer ive sanded primered and painted from the front doors up but its gonna be a slow process all around gonna start the eyes sometime this week then do doors as well atlest then i can start the mouth and teeth and get the hard part done with also wandring if camo would be a good fit for the hood just tan brown and black.
