Wow! That's a sweet lookin Blazer. The white rims look perfect for that color combo. I always prefer the two-tone paint scheme on these.

The original Blazer rims are awesome on the Yota. There's just something about that green/gray/black combo that set's it apart from others I've seen.

Seeing how clean your new work shop is, makes me think...I need to clean up my mess, so I can apply some effort into makin some bodies.

Thanks a bunch Willez
Very appreciated.

I too really like how the white wheels contrast with the two tone.
Lowered stance for the win for me too.
The stock version of chassis is stiff as a board ...especially with the double hoop front shocks.

As for the little green yota, I'll be dumping more $ into it also. Detail stuff interior lights etc..More on that one in a bit.

as for the a clean area to build tiny trucks...do it..ahahaa
Mine changed from a dark creepy little basement dungeon into a fun relax- able place to sit and build.

wife said no more spray painting in the house though. ahahahaha
buggar.
Thanks again my friend.
More soon.

My wife said the same thing.
I now have a make-shift paint booth with a large cardboard box. I try to do little things when she's not here and it mostly dissipates by the time she gets home. But...don't ever tell her she uses too much fingernail polish(smells just like paint), or you'll suffer her wrath too. Boy, that was a mistake.

One day I will build me a small paint booth. scale would even be more cool.


Got this far.
For those interested, I blew up a whole stock interior. Separated seats, console etc.... built a new floor, that now hides the ugly gap under body...etc.
Flocked and paintage. Lots of little details left on the door cards but paint is a drying.

More soon. Thanks for looking and enjoy.

Thanks Willezcr8

I looked and studied on that same interior, Just not sure how to go about getting all them flavor's of colors and make it look right.
Cream, Orange, Black, oh my .

I'll ponder the situation. See what I can maybe come up with on one of the extra interiors first.
Hummmmmm

Thanks again.
You know all ideas are very welcome on my threads'.

A guy might cut a sponge and dab into paints and apply... Layers...of sorts
Could work with some patients maybe.

Maybe one of those cheap Foam cutting brush sponges.
They have a nice taper and sharp-age edge that could probable be controlled.

Huge thanks "nut"

I will be trying Willezcr8 idea on looks.
Paint is dry enough now to man handle it all.

Lets see, I also whacked the Blue body in half.
Another SWB pick-up coming soon.

The maroon and white body swb pickup is going to my good friend Harry/bullet.

More soon.

Thanks freedom
It does bring a little more to the beds.
It actually should have a new piece of styrene added to hide floor slats was my thoughts.
But I'm lazy and busy ahahaha
Thanks again.
