No mom, it'll stay stock...

...were my exact words in September 2007. Bought this truck bone stock the week before I started college in an effort to avoid public transit. Go me.

The skinny: 2002 S10 Extended Cab Stepside ZQ8

Within the first month, I dropped it 2"F/3"R. Second month it got an ARE tonneau cover, and a shaved tailgate. Then it was winter, so mods stopped.

Spring rolled around and I got a K&N CAI, front windows tinted, and a Spintech Prostreet muffler, routed out in front of the rear passenger tire.

Summer lead to getting the front end painted, with the addition of clear corners. Added clear taillights that I had tinted pewter to match, and some Street Scene mirrors.

And that's about where we stand now. A few random pics to show where we've been, and where we're at.

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

By now, you're all wondering where we're going.

Well, we're going to Bagsville. Population: me.

I drive country roads to work everyday, and I can't stand it anymore. This static drop is killing the truck, and is giving me brain damage.

So, one call to Ricky after convincing myself spending all this money would be worth it, and here we are a month later.

The main components:
- SD bolt on backhalf
- Upper and lower arms
- 2500s in the front, 2600s in the rear
- 3/8" valves, FBSS
- and everything else needed to lay it out, and lift it up again

Pics of it in my parents Trailblazer:


And everything in the garage:


The plan is to do as much as I can, with the help of my dad, and friends with bagged truck. I've done a good amount of research, but these guys have hands on experience you can learn from a book.

The goal is July 25th for a local chairty show, but we'll see. I'm not going to cut corners and rush it.

Pics to come as I have them and are worth posting.

Thanks.

Nice truck. What is your mom saying now that your bagging it? lol

props for driving a truck that low in Ottawa. My brother went to school at Algonquin and there is some pretty rough streets around that way.

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

90blueS10: I'm still torn on them. They haven't gone on yet this season. lol

Restoration:
She hated the idea. Then she saw my buddies bagged Sonoma, and giggled when it went up and down. She knows I'm excited, so she's excited for me.

orangesonoma: I know. That was the day I bought the truck. It was shampooed the next day. I'll get more recent pics under the hood. As for total cost...$4,300 USD shipped. In Canadian I'm out a little over $5,200 in parts, shipping and taxes. I've lost a neighboor I knew all my life, 2 grandmothers and an aunt in the period of 6 months. You only live once.

01cherryreds10: It'll still be a daily. It's being built with that in mind.

Bob:
Thanks again for everything. Npone of thios would have been possible without you.

Matt96Dime: Good luck with your build. I'm gonna have to go and see the old owner at some point and show him what he could have had!

POR only comes in Black as far as I know,, you may want to call around to see if it has different colors!


I have the Marine Clean and the Metal Ready already, so you don't need to buy that.

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

Bob: If you already have black, that's fine. It does come in silver though, which would really make it pop.

scrubz: Thanks man. They certainly are different. The color is almost bang on. Here's a before shot when I got them (extremely yellow, pic shows it ok), and with them lit up:

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

No, I don't have black, but I do have the prep stuff for it.

You have to clean the metal with the Marine Clean which is a degreaser. Then you're supposed use Metal Ready which you spray on and keep the metal wet with Metal Ready for 15 minutes, then rinse with clean water, then dry and put on the POR 15.

BUT..... if all the parts are to be sandblasted, the metal would be as clean as it's going to get AND... POR says that sandblasted surfaces are optimal for adhesion, so... I don't think we would have to do all the prep if the metal is blasted.

If you can find somewhere that has the silver, then go ahead and get it.

I was thinking the same. Do the frame in Black, and do everything else in Silver. And perhaps get a chrome diff cover!!!

Anyways,, got your PM. I'll reply soon.

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

slammdsonoma38: I certainly am not. Might as well do it right the first time.

Bob: Where do you get the black from usually? I can call them and see if they have the silver.

Woody22: Thanks man. Your truck's looking good too. Those Eagles are nice.


...and an update. Picked up 98% of my fittings from a local truck shop. The guy helping me out actually had an S10 that he was ready to bag, but sold. So it went a helluva lot easier since he had an idea of what I needed too.

Hey, just a tip.

Your plate with the year sticker and the "Used primarily for personal transportation" sticker, goes on the front for trucks!

Also, I'ma gonna send you an email with how I did my valves on my tank. Maybe to give you an idea!

The Auto Parts Extra in Arnprior has two quarts of Black now. I'm sure they could get silver, but I'd have to check.
They are selling the Black at $64.99/quart.

I know they do...after getting a ticket a few months ago.

I think I've got the valves figures out, and bought the fittings to go with. And the guy at Malmberg was going to plumb his S10 the same way, but sold it for a Canyon.

If they can get silver in quickly, awesome. If not, black will do.

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

nice project bro, the SD 5-link decimates all man I love mine. I was so excited I had it all installed in 4 days. just wish I would've waited a bit longer and had it powder coated. . . but that leaves me something to do this winter. good luck with the build man *subscribed*

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

Bob: I know he wants to do his himself, but needs a garage first. lol.

nova67:
12" is awesome. I'll be running 2600s as well.

EDIT:
Hey Bob, looks llike you beat me out by a few seconds there.

Last night I ran all 5 line from my pillar, under the drivers side dash vent, over the gauge cluster around the airbag switch, beside the radio, and out behind the ashtray. Moral of the story: GM makes stupid dashes.

It makes a difference it terms of looks, but I had my dad following me to a cruise night last year, and the sun was behind us. He said he could barely see them light up. It's a 75% clearcoat and 25% paint mixture.

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

Let me start by saying photobucket blows donkey. Shouldn’t take 2 hours to upload 39 pics.

Here goes. 2 days of updates for the price of 1.


Last week: Me and my dad spent all our free time putting together what I like to call "The Plate". Consists of the tank, compressors, valves, relay, traps, etc all mounted to a 45" x 20" x .250" aluminum plate. We worked hard on it, and i think it came out damn nice for two guys with ZERO experience in bagging.


Saturday: Loaded everything back into the Trailblazer, headed out to Bob’s after supper, unloaded everything, and nestled the truck in his garage. Definite garage envy on mine and my dad’s part. As it turns out, you can fit 6 S10s in his garage. Although, 3 of them were 1:24th scale lol. His daily is the one on the left, show truck on the right. Also got the bed off that night, started planning, and started a little disassembly.

Sunday: Let the cutting of shit begin. Got out the tank, the tank crossmember, the shocks, the leafs, the leaf perches, got the entire rear end rolled out and all that good stuff. Cleaned up the frame that would be staying, then broke out the templates. By this time, I was excited, and to say Bob was extremely excited would be an understatement. The man loves his cutoff wheels. We wrapped up the day by starting to install the new frame rails. Beefy as shit. My hats off to the guys at SD. All the naysayers need to have a swift kick to the head.

So that’s where we are now. Bob was going to drill the holes on the 2nd framerail tonight, and then start the sandblast, prep and paint process, to hopefully allow us (I should really be saying him LOL) to start putting the backhalf together by the end of the week.

Here are the pics from the last 2 days. I’m the guy mostly doing the standing around/taking pics, whereas Bob is always hard at work.

The 3 trucks.




Where's the bed?






There's the bed!

It's nekkid.


The new monsters.



Junk pile #2.


Oh boy, no turning back.


A piece of scrap we should have thrown into the neighbors yard according to the install manual. lol



Bob using his head to check if the new rails are strong enough. They are.


Me doing absolutely nothing.


The very proud owner, looking kind of high of rust dust fumes and thinner.

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

Awesome.

Here's the right frame rail drilled out...



And the rear end with no leafs and the hop shock mount ground off!



Those friggen U bolts that were holding the lower shock mounts and the 3" blocks had nylocks on them! I had to cut them to get them off, my impact wouldn't budge them! No biggie, if you need some they're cheapo!!

Anyways, should be able to blast some stuff tomorow, and I may start to rip apart the front, even though I said I wouldn't, but I may, or may not, depends on how I feel, or not, ok.
