Default My 98 blazer project

Bought this from a friend of mine for $600. He thought the motor was locked up because it wouldn't turn over... I put a battery charger on it and fired it right up. Haha, dumbass. It still needed a little work, brakes, tires, etc... and it was DIRTY inside and out. After about 10 hours of cleaning/detailing and removing the decals, it was looking pretty damn good... My sister needed a car so I ended up letting her just pay me back what I had in it and she took it over. Well she just bought a new Malibu so I just bought this back from her.
Here's how it looked when I first bought it.

And having removing the decals and debadging it.

I didn't take any before pictures of the interior, but it was DIRTY. The previous owner did drywall work and there was drywall marks and dust everywhere. It took about 6 hours of scrubbing and detailing to get it cleaned, but when I was done it looked mint. As you can see it's about time for another detail now though.

I have a decent little stereo planned for it. I still need to get off my lazy *** and build a box and amp rack, so until then I'm rocking an old skool panasonic deck and an re audio re12. I kind of like RE, for a cheap budget sub this thing sounds pretty good. I like my 10" RE SRI better though.

The system thats in the works consist of the following:
Head Unit: Pioneer AVH-P3200BT
Front Stage: Front Stage: PPI 356c's
Front Stage Amp: Hifonics ZXI 6410
Rear Fill: Undecided Midbass
Subs: (2) 10" IDQ v.3.
Sub Amp: Hifonics Brutus BRZ1200.1D
Future plans for the blazer include:
Tinted Taillights, Clear turn signal lenses, Tinted windows (5% on the rears, 20% on the front - legal), line-x the bottom, 30x9.50 tires on some zq8 or xtreme wheels
