What did you do to your S10/Sonoma/Hombre Today?. V3

I hope I am not overstepping by doing this, but I love this thread and since the last one is closed (I assume due to the length - 120 pages), I figured I would start version 3

It's not just today, but this week I concentrated on beefing up on tow capabilities. I got hung up on the frame hitting a hard packed snowdrift last weekend and had to get dragged off. I realized that my tow strap was old (I inherited it from my grandfather) and when new only rated for about 1,000 lbs. Also, I still have the stock pirate hooks on the front bumper.

I purchased a beefier tow strap (20,000 lbs rated, 4" wide and 30' long) and some massive brackets to use 7/8" tow shackles on the front (thanks, Jamaroon!). I also have gotten some more tow shackles as well- can never have too many! I will need to sandblast and repaint the brackets from Jamaroon before mounting them but I am moving forward. Sandblasting and painting should be done by the end of the weekend, maybe even installing them.....

I have been offered a new in box 2,000 lb 12v winch. I realize that this is not near big enough for serious offroad work but have been thinking of doing a 2" class 3 mount on the front of my truck and making a platform for that winch with a receiver and gator clips with enough cable to attach to the battery. In the case of my snowbank issue, this would have been more than enough, especially if I used a pully to double it. Any opinons on if this would be worthwhile?

I would do the winch thing, if not anything but a learning experience.

You didn't mention the brand of winch, but I would at least double check the mounting hole dimensions to see if they're standard (e.g. WARN). This way at least you have a mount for something with bigger capacity.

2000lbs sounds like a winch for an ATV. I would imagine the mounting dimensions would be smaller?

I would think so as well. I have not seen it but my Dad bought it on sale years ago - he can't resist a deal. Still new in box....

I washed my truck, and sandblasted and repainted the brackets I got for installing front tow shackles. Hopefully they will be dry tomorrow so I can install them.

Shagggerz, that grille is awesome!

Did the rear brakes on my 03 S-10. They were original and I replaced the hardware, cylinders and shoes. It has 122,000 miles on it and the rear brakes were original.

Re: What did you do to your S10/Sonoma/Hombre Today?. V3

Bought new (to me) rims on craigslist

I have been looking for 3 spoke rims since the day I got the truck.
these were what I figured to be a fair price (I could afford) they were on an s10 so i knew they would fit before wasting my time, also same diameter as my stock rims.

they are staggered, rears are the same width as my old xtreme rims, fronts are an inch narrower. but its not noticeable (the stagger is centered so really they only sit 1/2" in from the outside.

right now they are in desperate need of a cleaning/polish again. but not until it quits raining and warms up out here.

New spark plugs, wires, ign coils in this stupid 2.2. Suppose to be a quick damn job, but of course i get the seized bolts for the Ign coils, had to remove the whole damn module and grind em down to be able to drill and tap for some new bolts. What a bitch. Better not misfire anymore.

Did some much needed maintenance : new tensioner pulley, belt, fuel filter, new plugs, new wires, and changed out the driver side door hinge pins & bushings. Next week I'll be swapping out the old bulbs with LEDs

How's the difference in braking for you now? I had to have the same thing done to my Camaro last week, when I found out the shoes on one side were completely delaminated. I had 2 good brakes, 1 bad rear, and 1 non-existent rear. Braking is very good now.

Re: What did you do to your S10/Sonoma/Hombre Today?. V3

They're easy. If you have a 2nd person to help hold up the door its convenient. I use a 5 gal bucket underneath the door to help hold it up too. Each door for me, since I've done it many times, usually takes less than a half hour depending on how stubborn the old hinge pins are. The GM door spring tool is a godsend for this, definitely get it, they're cheap. I got mine at harbor freight. Search the forum for how-tos

Re: What did you do to your S10/Sonoma/Hombre Today?. V3

^^^^ X2 - what he said. I used a jack to hold the door while I removed the pins, then laid the door down while I drove out the old pieces of bushings. The extra space allowed me to clean things up on the door jamb too. And yes, I did have to cut the door speaker wires, but they were easy to connect when i went back together with it. I didn't have the door spring tool tho, that made it a pain to put the spring in, but 4 zip ties and a vice did the trick

Re: What did you do to your S10/Sonoma/Hombre Today?. V3

I took some scrap 2x4's and built a quick U-shaped cradle under the door just touching the bottom so when I pulled the pins I could just slide the door away and work on it. No one had the spring tool so I compressed the spring in a vice and put four really heavy cable zip-ties to hold it compressed, then stuck it back in and cut the ties.

I need to do the door pins on mine as well - but I will definitely get the GM door spring tool in advance.

Hopefully fixed my p0300/po301 issues on the 2.2. Took the fuel rail out and cleaned all the injectors, they were pretty gummed up. After that, fuel filter, plugs, wires, coils, runs good again.

Picked up mine from the shop. They replaced the seal between the master cylinder and booster, flushed the brake fluid (for the 1st time since I bought it new), and changed the pressure line on the steering pump. I have to admit, it is kind of weird to look at the master cylinder reservoir and see clear fluid in it.

I still don't know what that term means. Is it "won't turn over" as in the starter doesn't turn the engine when you turn the key, or the engine spins but doesn't fire?

When I hear the term "turn over", I picture the engine rolling over in the engine bay for me to rub it's greasy oil pan and make it kick it's exhaust pipe like a dog does his leg.

It sounds like the strong start is going out. Better replace it now before you get stranded.

Re: What did you do to your S10/Sonoma/Hombre Today?. V3

I had a great day! I went to the wrecker - got a replacement d/s door panel (mine is all cracked up around the handle), a new gauge package glass assembly (someone had pulled it but left it in the truck WTF?) with no scratches or hazing - looks new!, and a Taurus 3.8l fan assembly for in the spring when I want to change to electric fan. Also got some this's and thats - got the missing wheel chocks and wing nut for my jack package, a new daylight headlight sensor, some wiring harnesses from the fusebox so I can do a nice job of wiring accessories, and the entire package for the boxes that go in the centre console. Wish I had a drill with me - could have gotten a replacement weatherstripping as well, the one that is on the third door at the window level to seal on the drivers door. May have to go back for that....

Re: What did you do to your S10/Sonoma/Hombre Today?. V3

Yesterday I washed her and touched up the primer. It was chipping in places and my drivers door was dirty from were I keep grabbing to close it. Same on the tailgate and hood. Was mostly oily hand prints from some recent maintenance I did to her. Now she's looking like I care about her, not that I don't. I love my truck, I just tend to be lazy haha.

Messerschmitt 262 grey (primer) and black two tone, was red and black. '94 S10 LS Exd Cab 4.3L 262ci Z TBI 5 Speed Manual.

Got my new bumper painted a mounted, and then promptly went overboard with the sand paper and spot putty, as the body was not up to the high standards set by the bumper's sweet paint job.

Re: What did you do to your S10/Sonoma/Hombre Today?. V3

And today....... I rear ended somebody... My first ever accident. Thankfully it was at a fairly low speed and nobody was hurt. Just a bent up bumper and a cracked grill in my case. The guy I hit had a hitch step which took most of the impact and saved both vehicles from more damage. It torqued his bumper up to where he couldn't open his tailgate open, but it was a fleet vehicle for the electric company. So it's not his personal ride. Guy was very nice and understanding. I got very lucky. I didn't even get a ticket. Imma keep my eyes on the road, and not on the girls.

Haven't been to the forum in a while, this was actually a couple of weeks ago but, I installed some LED turns that I bought off of a member. Since then, more gas and miles added to the clock.
