well i picked up my dime for 400$ back in the summer. and it sat for a bit unloved.......well now i've felt the need to show it some love with a new front end :p . The fenders and rad core were shot to hell. so i slapped on new fenders and a core along with core support bushings, a new radiator and heater core. Progress will be slow but i want it done right the first time. pics below or check out my site http://www.freewebs.com/sdimekid/s10.html

Tear down






The rebuild




And as she sits now

basically get it put back together and on the road since i haven't driven it at all. since im in school for autobody im gunna remove all the cancer i can in the cab ( cab corners and mounts and floor pan) then the firewall needs desperate attention. Im also looking for some buckets to replace the bench.
