[Project] "Just Fixing A Few Things"

So, i havent been active on this site for awhile.. well i have just not posting too much, mainly because i had nothing useful to contribute...but now i think its time to start a project thread since my simple "fix a few things" turned into a frame off rebuild.





This was the truck for many years, yes its that truck.



This is what the truck became, no real changes were made, just color..



Then, tear down started over the "winter", i had only intended to finish tubbing the firewall, and get a new 7" booster to make some room..



Then, I decided it could use a new bed too.. so that was taken off as well as the doors, because i want handles when it goes back together.



Ikea S10.



This is the way it say in the garage for awhile.



I scored a bed from a member on here, and he was kind enough to bring it from maryland all the way up to me in nepa... i had it a total of 6 hours and the cutting started.



removing seam sealer sucks.. just saying.



Man, this bed was almost too clean to cut up.



10hours after i got the bed, it was missing a floor.



A couple hours after the floor was removed, it was put back in its new place! Stock Floored As F*ck.





I decided the air management could use some updating so thats to Ct @ Beefcake Customs, i got 2 Viair 444c's 4 GC 1/2" Valves 2 Water traps and a pressure switch. Also picked up a 7" Booster



While the cab was away.. i started stripping the frame, im going to replace everything, every line, and paint everything also, gotta move the bag mounts and notch for tie rods.. because.



I picked up these, yes they are the offical s10forum whore wheels.



Brought the cab to a buddies house to get some much needed attention.. and boom firewall was gone.



hmmm...




oh yeah!




Now that looks gooder.



so thats pretty much up to date, still have alot more to do but it should come together pretty soon now.

Progress looks good man!

So, just trying to get this straight... are you JollyGreenMini, just with a new user name? Because I thought he said he sold that truck circa 2011, but you said it's been your truck for many many years.

Just curious...


Either way, I love the truck and it seems like you have a good plan and direction for it

Re: [Project] "Just Fixing A Few Things"

did a little more work, took alot longer than i thought it was going to, so we didnt get much to look at done.. alot of redoing templates and such but on to the pics!





starting to look like something now, gotta go back in and trim the bottom corner by the gas pedal area, other than that.. that section is ready to goto bodywork.
