The start of something great

So, I've wanted a bagged s10 since around '98, I used to get tailgate magazine, minitruckin, streettrucks, all that back in high school-then I blew all my money racing motorcycles for a few years, built a few old school lowriders with my dad, few Harley's, and then the bug bit me again and I joined this site in '06 I think, but somehow I ended up with a silverado, so I put 18"s on it, lowered it, usual stuff. Here's the silverado



Anyway enough history, after two bikes and a car, I picked up a s10, already bagged with a sd 3link, 3 5gal tanks, half inch fills and 1" dumps. (Why would u do the fills/dumps like that? Sounds backwards)

Here it is, the start of something great (hopefully lol)







Here's the plan-
losh steering kit
re-tub the back to lay on 22"s
Tub the front for 20"s-I'd like to be able to drive/even turn alil, like a inch off the ground
Sink the shocks
Box the frame in a few places for piece of mind
Vintage air
Vette brakes front n back

That's all I can think of but if I keep looking on s10forum.com the list will never end lol

I got 6months of part collecting and planning before I start, and hopefully I can knock it out in 2 weeks.
Things I've done so far are new gates belt, third door handle (was broken) and I started the big 3 yesterday with 1/0 cable

Re: The start of something great

I just realized you were the guy in the baggin it section testing out a few bagged trucks before you bought one. Nice choice man how much you score it for?

Re: The start of something great

So far I've spent a total of $4100, that includes the truck, registration, cables for big 3, third door handle, gates belt, harbor freight airline kit-awesome idea-and washing it. I think that's a decent price for a v6 auto. Could be wrong tho lol

It's a great start for what I want to do, the only major thing I don't like is the license plate is frenched into the tailgate at an angle. I'll probably get another tailgate and put the plate in the roll pan.

I'll get some more pics when I finish the big 3

Re: The start of something great

i did the wiring, took a few pics. kinda useless seeing as how theres a sticky on it but pics are pics lol







i went battery to alt, then battery to engine, engine to frame. then i used the stock ground wires and put them all on the body. yes i got rid of /trimmed all the random zipties i saw

i also cleaned the orifice tube in the ac lines, and recharged it, so the ac is ice cold now. no pics tho.

heres some cool stuff that drove by as i was messing with the truck







max lift 120psi


ride height on a decent road, 70psi front /30psi rear


tire size is 245/35-20 all around.

whats up with the headlights? i do notice there's a lil gap but they aren't about to fall off that i can tell. how do i fix it?

there are tabs on the bottom of the headlight bracket that sit in the core support.

that made perfect sense when i looked at it lol

looks like the brackets were swapped, left is on right, right is on left. i see where they should sit in the core support but the tabs face out instead of in towards the hole. sound right?


oh to answer the other question, its laying on the inner fenders.

Re: The start of something great

I fixed te headlights before i left btw

I've spent more cash on the truck and I'm not even home yet lol
So far, I got wheels, haven't bought the tires yet, tell me if the measurements sound right before I do.

Front 20x8.5, -6mm offset 4.5 bs, tire 245/35-20
Rear 20x9.5, 0 offset 5.25 bs, tire 275/35-20

I wanted 22" but they don't make the wheel I like in that size.

I'm getting in on the lsoh group buy, and I'll pick up the no toe kit too.
Strong arm lower control arms are on hold for me
Front shocks, and proper mounts (got lucky with those)

And vintage air is 15miles away from where I'm at, so I'm gonna go down there and see what all I need to put one of their mini kits in the truck.
I'm also working out the stuff I need to make my 3 link a 5 link, just waiting on ppl to get back to me.

Re: The start of something great

Thanks! Some of those nice parts came from you lol

I haven't bought the wheels yet, I've almost purchased em twice, but each time I backed out. It's such a big purchase, and I want it to look a certain way so I have to force myself to wait til I get back to the truck.



Ive been working on a rendering with another forum member for about 2weeks so far, I'll post up both wheels and see what you guys think when we are done.

Steering kit is at my house, im searching for c5 parts and this will be coming soon for the rear brakes, hopefully more ppl join in

Re: The start of something great

Really, i just want to bump the thread to remind you all about the lsoh rear disk group buy, it ends soon, and for a limited time u may get a free upgrade!!!

As far as the truck:

I got some real fancy limited edition shock mounts



And here's a sneak peek of what it could look like

Re: The start of something great

I think I got the last set of those shock mounts, and they look freaking awesome, great dude to deal with. He said he didn't really have time to keep making them. But, it never hurts to ask, the worse he can do is say no and you end up making them yourself.

I put the stock swaybar on today, used the stock end links. Cost $28 from the junkyard

Also got a hydroboost from the junkyard, put that on too. Used new stock lines for now, I'll upgrade to some custom ones later.

Thanks, it's getting there

I had the rendering done by a member on here, he does really good work. I forgot his username lol but I got his email address if anyone needs some work done.

So far I got lower arms, lsoh steering kit, and I have a new brake setup coming thanks to hi_im_sean, another good member to work with. It's coming together pretty good.

Re: The start of something great

Looking good man. Super clean and I too have a soft spot for a white S Series. That pinstripe render is badass! I really hope you stick to that, that's hella fresh. I look forward to being here for the future of this build.

Anyway, I also wanted to thank you again for your help in my thread about my potential purchase. Keep up the good work man.

Re: The start of something great

Thanks!

Did some work today, the one day I have this month to work on it. So I picked the easiest thing, the lsoh rear disc kit I got last year. Took some pics, easy install. I didn't paint anything yet, but next month the front end is coming off along with the bed, and everything will be getting some attention. It'll get paint then. And hopefully a new bed.






Cutting off the backing plate was alil tricky, but it went pretty fast and sparky with a 4" cut off wheel



Bracket



Purty rotor



I can't wait to sell these wheels lol

Is an easy formula
Width x the aspect ratio as a percentage x 2 + rim size
245x0.40x2+20= 27.7

Re: The start of something great

So since the ballpoint broke, I have to get it towed to wherever I'm going to do the front end (currently don't have my own garage anymore, sucks goatcock)-so while waiting to get a spot to tow it to I figured I'd do a few things.

Painted uppers


Pulled abs


Didn't have the right fittings so I figured I'd pull the inners while I wait for a ride to pepboys



And then I broke the jack. Full stop lol



Still waiting on my ride, and my big jack is about 100miles away, so I'm pretty much done.

divide that by 25.4 then
+ rim size
(245x0.40x2)/25.4= 7.7

+20= 27.7

fixed

Re: The start of something great

Got two new rear wheels today, one has a ding. good customer service tho, they're gonna replace it or give me a partial refund. Haven't decided what I want yet, still waiting on the fronts to show up, hopefully undamaged. Opinions?
