Re: Project *Lola*

Bump bump. So I have started working on this again to get it nice and drive-able when I drive it back to Michigan from Texas. Plans are to finish the interior put in new carpet, Install my newly finished kick panels, two new back speakers and do the new timing chain guides and tensioner.


Kick panel


Double roller from the factory FTW

Thanks for looking!

That top part goes up under the dash and all the holes are drilled for stock mounting of relays fuse brick and other shenanigans of that nature.

Re: Project *Lola*

Did a little more on the interior today. The dash needs to be pulled still and fixed badly the top is all cracked to shit from the Texas sun.

As far as Dash stuff goes no. I have a odd year kinda like the s10's 94 truck, they only did 2 years of my style truck as far as some stuff goes and that happens to be the dash.

Re: Project *Lola*

That blows. Which ones look better cosmetically? And are the years interchangeable?

Personally I think the 83-85 dash and cluster look better than my 82 But everything on my truck has been changed to the later year, so I figured I would keep at least one 82 part of it. haha

Re: Project *Lola*

Tinted the side windows tonight 5% and the back one will be done last this week in 2%.




Also picked up my steelies again and looking for some 14's to make white walls out of and I am gonna spray them antique white. The 18's are just to big to go any lower and I wanna drop it 2 more inches all the way around.

Re: Project *Lola*

I dig the old school peep mirrors. I would be weary of the chrome on the cheap ones though as it has a tendency to turn to butt in a short period of time.

Yeah I love them also, My buddy has a 73 620 pickup and he has them. The only thing I'm worried about is that they are gonna look weird cause the headlights are square.......

I'd have to see them installed to judge. There's square and rectangle ones out there but they're kinda difficult to find.
