1991 S10 Blazer - White

Post by StryfeS13 on July 5th 2011, 4:16 pm

Just picked this up a few days ago for $700. It wasn't running due to a bad fuel pump and only has 125,000 miles. The paint was typical GM of that decade (rusty, chipping), so I sanded it down and started to roll on...

Here's what I'm dealing with:





Rust like this:



Anyway, I finished all the bodywork which took forever, and this picture is right after the first two coats. Still wet of course

I did one of those as my first 'roll job'. Wish I still had it. Gave up before I got the interior finished.

Hey Dave that looks great for your first roller job, most come out very orange peely on their first try.

I just finished wet sanding the Blazer with 400 grit, about to roll on the 3rd coat:

Here is coat 4:




I should have full coverage at coat 5. I'm not expecting the paint to be perfect but I have to get all the bumpers and mirrors back on because this is my daily driver.

Coat 5:

I'm going to have to stop here for a while due to work,etc. So I'll be putting the bumpers back on and finishing the other coats possibly this weekend.

That is looking nice and shiny! Some nice dark tint on those rear windows would really make the white pop more, too.

Looks good. So now does it run now? My first car that I owned was an '84. I had it in high school.

Thats whats cool about this style of painting. You can stop anytime you need to and finish it later.
