Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

What's up guys. I've been on this forum for a little over a year and I thought it was time for a formal hello. Lol. I'm hoping this thread will keep me motivated and will help in building a nice ride. Hopefully I can handle the constructive criticism...

I bought my 98 S10 in December 2010. It's a 2.2L 5 speed. There were some things I liked about the truck and some I didnt. Here's where it was when i got it...



The stripes needed to go and the billet gas door for starters but it was a good start especially for a daily.

Then in March I went deer hunting with it...



So i thought I'd go with a Trailblazer front end because it cant be that hard right? Anyway...here it is several months later and the truck still isn't fixed. I'm working nights now and got tired of not having it done so I'm awaiting the arrival of my new 98 grille, core support, lights etc,etc. hopefully theyll be in this week.

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Btw plans for this little project are:

Hombre hood with shaved pissers, shaved antenna, gonna run the stock front air dam, shaved fuel door, new tailgate (because mine is pretty trashed) with license plate box and shaved handle, grant rollpan, new LED tails for the exterior stuff.

I might lower it more. Just depends on how 20s fit when I get them. I doubt I'll bag it but who knows lol.

Clean up the interior. Bucket seats, custom console, new gauge cluster with tach so I can remove the auto meter aftermarket one, new a pillar so I can remove the dual gauge pod with A/F meter and volt meter and repaint the painted interior pieces. I might get a double din dash piece so I can run a touch screen to replace my deck. It's garbage. And I need a new amp.

That's kinda where I'm at so far. Btw rollpan and tailgate and handle relocator are in the mail also.

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Yeah for sure! I'm pretty excited about it as of right now. The UPS man should love me by the end of the week! I'm hoping I can keep busy on it. Should be interesting since I've got 2 crazy kids and one income but I work in a fabrication shop so once it's rolling I shouldn't have any limitations as far as equipment and shop space goes. We will see!

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

I've seen it on a Sonoma...I know it'll need to be modified to wrap over the headlights some. I've never seen it on a S10 so I thought I'd try.

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Well I was planning on using the hombre hood with the trailblazer conversion but the whole conversion thing takes too long with the time I've got to throw at it. I already have the hood and I've got some idea of what needs to be clearanced for the lights n stuff. I'll know more when all my stuff gets here and I start putting it together.

Thanks for checking in guys! I'll try to keep things up to date as much as possible

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

I do have one question. I've got an ideas on how I'm gonna do the license plate box in my tailgate and it's not gonna be a traditional box. It's just an idea I've got in my head (I'll fill you in on the idea when I get to that point). What I'm wondering is how deep is the standard plate box? I'm planning on fabbing one just to be a little different. It might not even be noticeable but we will see when I get there. Lol.

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

I got a few parts in today so hopefully it'll start goin together sometime this weekend...

New core support, hood latch support, headlights and parking lights


Grille shell and air dam


Chrome grille bar and bumper


and tailgate (because mine is F'd)


I was supposed to get my rollpan and handle relocator form Grant today but it didn't make it so hopefully tomorrow. I also ordered new headlight retainers because I'm a dumbass and didn't order them with all this stuff. Also got a new gauge cluster with tach on the way (thanks for the idea Nomacane) but the front end is priority at the moment obviously lol.

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

I got some free time at work tonight so i thought id try making the retainers for the headlights. Took some flat bar and a little drilling and cutting. I think they turned out ok. They should work.



The paint looks kinda crappy because the steel i used was pretty pitted so it shows with the rattle can lol. The little pull tabs on the top are a little longer but that shouldnt hurt anything...

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Well...I got off work at 4 am this morning and decided to start on the front end. I was trying to get it done so I could sleep and didn't take pics but anyway...I got it put together. Still a few things that need to be finished up (I was pretty tired after being up 26 hours lol). I'll grab pics tomorrow and I gotta figure out how to make the passenger headlight sit right. It's either the light or the grille but something isnt right. I might try to get it inspected tomorrow I'm not sure yet. It'd be nice to be able to drive it to the shop so I can start some of the sheet metal stuff.

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Little bit of an update... I got most of the front end stuff on. Still need the air dam and bowtie and stuff. I've had my hombre hood for a while and it came with some shitty primer on it so its all chalky but heres a current pic anyway

Basically I decided I'm better at putting metal together than plastic so I cut the underside of the hood to clearance the grille (I'll start the sheet metal on it tomorrow night hopefully). Since I cut the hood instead of the top grille bar it's a bitch to get to the hood release (had to push it up with a screwdriver when I latched it the first time lol) so I extended the hood release thingy...

from this:


to this:


I think it'll work. I'll try it out tomorrow.

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

The more I look at the front end the more I wanna modify the hood. I'm gonna open the part around the lights more to the center to make it fit up better with the vertical bars on the grille. I think it'll make it look more like its supposed to be there. Any thoughts?

Sounds like a plan I'm looking forward to see how this all turns out with the S10 front end... it looks good so far!

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Do you still have that speed grille insert that was in the valance when you hit the deer? If so can you measure it for me? Im looking for one for my Hombre bumper but they don't make them for it so I was hoping that one was the right size.

Nah man. It's pretty trashed. I'm not sure what the shape of the hole is in the hombre bumper but the valance I had has like a tapered hole idk how to explain it lol. Here's a pic...



So the instert has an angle on it on the sides like this...



Since the instert was trashed I measured the hole in the valance and it measures 2 1/8" X 23 3/4" at the bottom of the hole.

Have you thought about just building one? I've seen your fab skills lol shouldn't be too difficult. I was actually thinking of making a jig for a press so I could try to bend custom sizes...

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

I got a little more done on my hood tonight. I think it looks alright for being my first real sheet metal project there's a few more things to be done. I gotta tie in a few more braces and clean it up some but pics anyway





After grinding all those spot welds I'm really dreading my rollpan...

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Thanks! Me too man! I modded it around the headlights some to line it up with the grille better and I'm crossing my fingers hoping it fits...I test fit the hood the day it left to go to the shop and there were some things I had to change to make it fit right. but as soon as I get the truck back I'll be checking it out!

Our parts truck at the shop is a 98 S10. I thought about pulling the hood off and trying it out on it

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Not much of an update but I'm excited so I thought I'd post. My truck should be out of the shop tomorrow. The head was warped and #2 spark plug was cross threaded so they took care of that for me. They also inspected it and got my green slip ready so I should be able to get it registered tomorrow as well (crosses fingers). Once I get it home I'll be checking the hood out hoping it fits so I can finish it up.

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Yeah. Definitely. I'm thinking it'll be a silver color when it's "done" lol. I'm hoping to finish up the hood (basically have it in primer with all the holes filled and everything) next week or the week after. Then I'll start on either the tailgate of shaving the antenna. Basically a little bit at a time lol.

Silver would look good. Is this still going to be your everyday driver? Got plans for a stereo?

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Yeah it'll stay my daily. I'll prolly just spray it a single stage when I do paint it. I've never sprayed a vehicle before and I wanna try lol. As for stereo I'm gonna ditch my shitty deck for a touch screen (like we already kinda talked about) and I'll run a square 8" (which I already have) or a 10" or something with 4-500 watts. Nothing major. I wanna run buckets so I'll def be building a console eventually. I might put the sub there but idk. I'm pretty open minded as far as the build goes and I know projects are never finished. So nothing is set in stone

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Finally got the hood on...


It warped a little from all the welding but its not too deep so a little filler should take care of it. I've got more tweaking to do on it but I'm tired of effing with it tonight. Atleast it's on

Sorry for the shitty pic but you get the idea

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

4-500 watts is nothing major?? In a reg cab?? Lol. I ran 250watts to a single 10" type e alpine for years, and it was more than enough lol. I got a 8" type r now and love it. Double dins are becoming more affordable so I wouldn't rush to buy one lol.

Not sure how tight your budget it, but you can buy a kirker complete paint kit from primer to clear coat for around 300 from smartshoppersinc.com. I've used their stuff and have had great luck. Just throwing it out there for something to consider. Hood looks good!

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Well I had 2 L7 8" under the back seat of my Titan with a Kicker 1200 lol. So to me it's nothing too major.

Thanks for the tip on the paint. I'll def give them a look. I was originally thinking flat silver metallic but like I said nothing is set in stone. I'm just 99% sure I want something from the silver family. Every time someone posts a pic of a silver one I just drool

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

I've actually been looking at their stuff for a while now. If I decide to go flat for sure that's the place I'll prolly get it. There are several members that have used their stuff and so far I haven't read any negative feedback. I just can't decide between flat or gloss lol. I've got time so I'm not just super focused on paint just yet. I will need primer really soon though. I'll prolly go epoxy primer based on the stuff I've read so far unless anyone else has better suggestions? It seems to be pretty good stuff.

Thanks for the tip though. Nice to know someone else was happy with their product

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Thanks man. I've got a little more tweaking to do on it. It doesn't quite line up right with the fenders so I'm not completely happy with it yet but it's definitely growing on me.

The wife hates it

Yeah, mine's like that too with the fenders... it's only like the first 3-5" off the leading edge tho, past that it lines up perfectly

Re: Project: Deerhunter (not what is sounds like...)

Yeah exactly! Drives me nuts lol. I've got the driver side really close. Gonna try to do the passenger side tonight. We will see. I'd like to have the hood and fenders in primer by the end of next week but things never go as planned
