In the interest of actually getting something done for once... and not selling yet another vehicle just because I'm bored with it (8th vehicle since I turned 18; never wrecked all sold to buy a different one) I decided to start a build thread. Not to mention that I'm hoping to network a bit with people who may have parts that I want / need, get ideas for things that I'm not sure about, and keep an active 'to do' list...
So about the truck:
98 S10 Extended Cab, 2.2 5 speed, 365,000
Only problems with it is a bad wire going to the EGR from the PCM, a picky O2 sensor, and a couple rust holes
Since I've had it:
Ebay Cold Air (no intake on it when I got it)
New mirrors with 'stealth' Led blinkers / running lights (wiring still isn't done right)
Put power leather seats out of blazer in but the upholstery is crap (mainly just wanted the rails anyway...)
Sound system upgrade
Started painting all of the charcoal trim flat black
fiberglass tonneau cover
jump seat box (not quite finished yet... first time fiberglassing!)
Things I plan on doing in the near future:
2/3 drop with spindles and blocks
Install a rollpan
Got some regular ole American Racing rims I need to clean up and paint
tailgate handle relocate
halo heads / led park and tails
I'm also kind of thinking about shaving the door handles... but not entirely sold on that idea yet.. we'll see what sort of progress I make first.
And now, since you all like pics so much... a nice stock s10...
My flush mount with my new deck... doesn't look as good as the old one.
My amp rack...
