Re: >>SLAB: Slow Low And Bangin

Looks like it could use a wider tire, But I guess thats the style right now for the euro crowd. Overall it looks really good though.

I gota agree, for the sake of the rims. I can't see those rims lasting more than a month without getting bent after a horrid east coast winter and pothole filled roads. Sick rims, just think about staying closer to whatever oem manufacturers put on rims that size.

Re: >>SLAB: Slow Low And Bangin

true. Just never been a fan of stretching a tire on a wheel wider than it was meant for, but I know its a style right now and sometimes style comes before function on a show truck.

While I don't like stretched tires personally, its also his truck and his vision of what he wanted. Sometimes I feel like people forget that.

Re: >>SLAB: Slow Low And Bangin

Meh to a certain extent its okay. With this setup I'd be more worried about curbing a wheel. But when its unsafe any reason you justify it is bullshit.

Re: >>SLAB: Slow Low And Bangin

BINGO! I am tucking nearly the whole sidewall and therefore I cannot run a wider tire. I could run a more narrow wheel, on my narrow tires, but who wants to see a slammed truck on pizza cutters? I run a 215 on the 8" wide front wheel, and a 235 on the 10" wide rear wheel. Those are stock s10 treadwidths!

Anyhow, for the most part the truck has been great with the exception of a small mishap last weekend with the left brake caliper.

I was on my way to a show called Defrost at Limerock raceway in CT. I was supposed to meet up with a photographer to shoot my truck on the track after the show and that idea came to a screeching hault as my left brake caliper carrier came off my spindle. The exposed ends of the wheel bolts dug into the side of my caliper and my heart sank. Fortunately, my friend was following me in my vw and my girl and I hopped in that and were still able to attend the show. Rolling 5 deep in a 20 year old vw tucking 2" of wheel wasn't exactly a fun ride but we got it done.

Loading up on the flatbed...





So I had to hunt down another blazer dual piston caliper and replace the pads. I had originally painted my calipers and carriers with a single stage paint to match the body of the truck. It came out too dark and was not too glossy... I was never truly happy with how they came out. So with the opportunity to paint my new caliper, I decided to re paint them both. This time I did a base coat clear coat and I am much happier with the results.





The brakes work flawlessly again, and I was able to take it to a meet yesterday.

Re: >>SLAB: Slow Low And Bangin

Glad the brakes were a quick and easy fix! Its always scary when something like that happens on the highway. Glad no one and nothing was too hurt. Trucks lookin on point.

Re: >>SLAB: Slow Low And Bangin

Everything has been going well, I attended the broke east meet at Mohegan sun this previous Sunday and had a good time chilling in VIP on the roof top.

Only issue is this damn valance keeps on getting ripped off, I'm waiting for the day I just run it over completely lol















Got surprised, a friend bought me a new gm chmsl lens! Damn things burn up quick.

Re: >>SLAB: Slow Low And Bangin




















here is the carnage from the snapped arm





The control arm snapped while I was driving on the highway and thankfully I kept the truck under control and did not crash. I've removed both lower control arms and sent them to Spohn to be rebuilt and researched.

Truck looks good. That's weird how the control arm broke like that. Glad you didn't wipe out.
