Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Thanks guys! Tokodragon, I've got 3 more center caps that I pulled off an Astro cargo van, at home. Gonna clean them up and use them as wall art or something. I just love the look of them.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

I'm excited about the frame, and being 'bagged at that. I was afraid that you'd do all of this work, then the rotted frame would be the wooden stake through the heart. I'm glad to see it has a solid and better future.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Hell, no! With all the work I put into this thing, getting the body straight and rust free, and rebuilding it after wrecking it, there's no way I'm letting a little (ok, a LOT) of frame rot keep me from reaching my goal of getting it on the ground! Even if I wasn't planning on bagging it, it'd still be easier to swap frames, than it would be to start over with another truck, and get it to the point I'm at now.

Today I finally cleaned and repacked my wheel bearings. I've put almost 50k miles on the truck, and I don't know when or if they were ever serviced prior.
Pulled everything apart, and there was virtually no grease left in the bearings. They looked good, though. No pitting or wear or roughness. Cleaned em up, repacked them, and put everything back together with new seals.
Initially, I thought I had plenty of pad left



A good 1/4" or so. Until I saw how close to the rivets I was



Like the bearings, these pads have around 50k on them, so I'm sure I could've got the summer out of them, but the bagged chassis I bought had close to new pads on it, and was sitting right there, so I grabbed the pads off it



A little surface rust from being exposed, but nothing bad. Cleaned and lubricated the slider pins and all contact points, and reassembled everything. Should be good for another 30-40k!

Mhm. I don't think they even make disc pads that are rivited on anymore. I don't believe I've ever seen any.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

My 85 has them and I was told they were only 1-2 years old when I bought it. (Now almost 3 I assume) so I figure you can.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

So, no real updates. Just been daily driving it since the gf has the Blazer. Once she gets a new car and I can take this thing off the road, I should start making some progress. Might start working on the new frame a little. A few things need to be cut off and rewelded, and the whole thing needs to be cleaned up and painted. I just don't really have the motivation right now. Interior of the truck is starting to go. Front edge of the dash is lifting, and the rear of the headliner is falling down. Little things that just make me a little sad. Enough rambling. Here's a pic



Kinda thinking about putting the GTAs back on for now. I like the steelies, but I like the stance with the wider tires. I dunno.

It's a 20/20. Looks good at 20 feet away at 20 miles per hour. That's exactly how my S10 is.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

So, it's been a couple months, and nothing's really happened. Just been driving it. Swapped the GTAs back on today, and gave it a much needed cleaning.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Looking pretty good, are you ever going to get the hood painted to match? Pinstriping looks sweet though.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Not this one. I know a lot of people aren't big fans, but I love the contrast the rust gives to the truck. I do have another GMC hood hanging around that I'll probably paint to match someday so I have a couple options.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Thanks Tyler!
Drove it last Saturday for the first time in a few weeks. Didn't realize how harsh and slow it was compared to the Blazer, until I drove it again. Still more fun to drive though! Missed ripping through the gears.

Re: MyTruckHasNoPantsOn!

Parked the Blazer and picked this thing up from my parents' Thursday night, to drive over the weekend. Stopped to put gas in it and when I started it back up, the check engine light turned itself out, which was nice.
Looks like I'm gonna be selling my new frame and all bagging parts in the spring. A friend of mine just got a job at a metal fab shop and can fix my frame for a good price. I've never been fully committed to the swap. I don't really have the resources or the ambition, honestly, and I know it would get half torn apart and just sit in my parents' yard for who knows how long.
Most of the money will go into upgrades to the Blazer. Refinishing the new wheels, new tires, maybe a small lift, etc.
Aside from some finish bodywork and paint, the s10 is pretty much done for me.
