Default shawns zr2 build

i bought an 01 blazer zr2 a few months ago and i have been slowly working away at it, so i figured i would start a build thread. sorry for the crappy cell phone pics, i will take better ones shortly

what she looked like when i brought her home:


a few days later:


and a few days after that, i put bedliner on the bumpers, flairs, and the lower part of the body, sprayed the healight trim rings and chrome bar on the grill in flat black and the bowtie in flat olive green:


so far i have also tinted the tails and painted a set of zr5 rims black. still have more work to do on it, and ill get better pics up shortly

Looks good. I love the olive drab color, thats probably the most rare blazer color other than the teal blue! As for the lugnuts, you should be able to find them at your local speed shop. The box I got was $50, and it has 24 keyed lugs, and the special socket that fits them. Good deal cause I got 4 extra nuts to lock the spare tire on the carrier too.

You should check out Ebay, I get lots of good deals on there.
