I used Krylon flat black as a base and Orange over that.
I will still Do a light black wash to grunge it up some.

That looks a million times better, just with a little detail work. Awesome!

Just playing around this morning.
But this combo for wheels and tires would be the bomb for stock guys.
1.55 steel wheels and roady semi tires.
Hope to see this done on something..heck, maybe I'll even work on doing to something along these lines.

Enjoy and thanks for looking.

I thought of that myself Ron, I had the roady super wides and the topcad aggressive rears before and thought they look perfect for stock height build.

Hey 2Beers, everything you built looks great! I'm still new to all of the custom work, and especially chassis modifications. I was hoping to build a pickup out of my Blazer as well. I saw on Page 3 of the thread, you said you chopped the TF2 rails and then lengthened them. Do you have any more pictures of that process? Also, you said you almost messed them up, could you explain what you mean? Is it just styrene holding the rails together or is there metal as well? How much of a beating do you think it would take?

Sorry for all the questions but I appreciate any help you can offer!

Thank you.
I cut the rails right at the transfer case cross member.
I then used .60 styrene to box in the new support running them as long as possible for more support along the rails. The truck has been sold but is holding up very well. Nothing has broke or came apart. In the long run I would have them lazer or water jet cut out next time to make them a solid one piece rail. I ended up stretching the chassis two inches for the long bed.
The new owner drives it all the time and posts it up all the time on face book.
Hope this helps.
Luck on your journey.

Thinking something along these lines... SWB though,
More of the stock metallic looking light green and white two tone, and a weeee bit of weathering.
Plan in hand, It's chop time.
