Well, Since the wife and kids are out of town visiting her sister in indy. I was actually able to complete some work on the truck!

First I replaced the outer tie rods....then had an alignment done.

1.Took the roof rack off.
2.Removed the side moldings
3.Removed the Chevy badge on the back but kept the Trailblazer.
4.Replaced both tie rod ends and had an alignment done.
5.Paited the side mirror covers to match. (I'll get to the outside handles if I can figure out how to get them off!)
6.Fixed scratches and chips in paint.
7.Clayed it.
8.Waxed and waxed, and waxed!
9.Finished painting the rear calipers. (I wanted the paint to be just a little darker so I added some darker High temp engine enamel to the caliper paint.)

Still getting use to it not having the rack or molding. Kind of like when you shave your mustache off after having one for so long...I guess Ill give it a few days to get use to!
