Re: Project: Minty Fresh

One thing I would HAVE to do if it was mine, is color match the rear window side plastics.... whatever they are called... the black pieces, they need white paint....


are you planning out more mods? or u gonna center your attention on the first gen?

Color matching the black pieces on either side or the back window would look good.

I like the hair of rake. Gives it a sporty look. It rides awesome! way better than the sucktech springs i had in the s10. i took the shocks out of the s10 too. so i know it was the springs. It doesn't bottom out or rub at all anywhere.

I also like the amount of black to white contrast. The window trim will stay black. White would be too much and there are other things that need painted before those anyways, like the hood and bumper.

It's getting tinted tomorrow and ill be done with it for a while after that. Next will be head unit. But the s10 comes first.

Re: Project: Minty Fresh

Yeah I agree about the back glass trim. Corys truck is one of the few that I like with the trim painted body color, every other time I see it it looks like poo.

Yup had DJM in my first s10. I have Belltech v6 springs in the front of my current s10 which has a 5.3 in it and there stiff and ride fine. Possibly just bad luck for you guys?

Re: Project: Minty Fresh

Thanks dude. Sadly its not enough. I still want more.


I think the brake issue has to do with the front lines. It only happens when i turn really sharp.

Should i have to get extended lines?

Re: Project: Minty Fresh

They were like 75 shipped. and my carpet looks pretty ratty and my current mats are black rubber junko mats that slide around and dont fit. I figured it was cheaper than new carpet and not much more expensive than a set of nice universal mats.

Re: Project: Minty Fresh

Can't wait to see them in the truck. Not a bad idea though depending on how much of the floor that they cover. My carpet is only sucky on the passenger side where feet go really.
