This is my buddy Jeremy's truck, it's become my new project with the help of my little brother (drivewaydime), my friend Taylor with the sfbd 93 toyota, and Jeremy. The truck has a set of 20" chrome wheels with 225/35/20 Wanli tires (in the corner for now).

The truck is bone stock, '86 ext. cab s10, 2.8 FI Automatic. The truck came with the 13 gallon gas tank, no AC, and no carpet. It's the bare bones dime. We're doing everything you can think of to the truck. First item, shaving. Everything will be gone, bodyline, tailgate, bumpers, handles, cab seams, antenna, locks, gas door, shaved firewall, and I'm debating on shaving off the front bumper and building a smooth front lower fascia.

Next soon afterwards, full air setup with CanDo 6 link, modified stock arms in front, AZ compressors, and front/back setup with stock swaybar.

Finally, the bodydrop, Jeremy is still debating on stockfloor (he doesn't want to pay me a little bit more, but i think i can talk him into it with the help of the rest of the guys. Either way, it's getting a BD to the rockers and tubbed firewall. Sometime later this year we'll install vintage heat behind the dash.

On with the pics of what we've done in about 12 hours of work so far over the course of a few weeks. We only get to work on this a few nights a week because he works alot and has a fiance.

I also fully braced the rear skin, angle iron along the top and bottom.

His friend also ripped us some strips of 16 ga. that we have been welding in for the bodyline, this is some tedious shit, but it's gonna look good after a coat of filler and some more sanding

The Skin and fillers are from FBI and the LED's are already wired up, along with an H4 headlight conversion for '93 model.




FBI taillight fillers fit like shit by the way! I had to cut/bend the hell out of them to even get them close to fitting. :rant:

I hear ya. Mine fit like shit too. :rant: by the time I got them lined up I had like a 1/4" or more gap at the top. I had to fill this and that is why I started shaving the bodyline on my truck.
