Well lets just say I had a great MONDAY. This last monday here in western NC we had some a very strong wind storm. It was 8:46am we lost power some time in the night and when we got up my wife grabed her cell phone and was head out side to make a call when. The wind blew and......

a TREE fell on my dime.

So after calming my wife down i went out side to inspect the damage. It didn't look that bad a first. Oh yeah it scratch the hell out of her s10 blazer as well. I'll get a pic up of the tree on them asap. Anyway I call my dad and him and I cut the lims off of the truck then i drove it out from under the tree and then we cleared the road of the tree. Now heart broke that my baged in the front daily with a new SD 3 link sitting in the basement. I had to do something. I placed a couple of call and with in about 2 hours.

New project.

Sad to say but my beloved 6 3/4 BD project blazer had to got for money and time.

So now about the title. I have now three s10 and i'm going to make one good Baged and Body Droped daily out of them.

Progress. Cut out most of every thing and then added a crossmember that i will build onto for my tank and compressor.

More tomarrow. gonna pull the dash and most of the front clip. If there is any thing on these that any of you might want just ask. It just might be for sale CHEAP.

Yeah that's one way to look at it. The tree dented the hood,Drv fender,Cab,Drv Bed side, Tailgate,Pass Bed Side and the Drv Door.And don't for get that it Bent that back half of the frame. It pulls a little to the right when I go down the road. I have a good cowl, Front bumper, Roll pan, Pass Fender, and Pass Door. Oh well.
