Quick intro, my names Spike, i'm a sophomore in college as of 2010 so this build will be on a college budget. got my first s10 when i was 16 and am quickly falling in love. i've moved on to my second truck which is a 95 with 60k miles that i got for 900 dollars. i've been on this site a few years and you guys are the most helpful (flaming aside) people when it comes to s10's.

So lets get started.... who doesnt love pics

the day i bought it (on the right) next to my old one









First thing i did was swap my Irocs over




then my friend in the air force stationed in Korea sent me this



^pretty bad ass

here she is after a wax, note the dent in the hood...


then i cleaned the engine bay and threw in a CAI


picked up some brand new belltech spindles


made a bad ass burger


droped her 2/3 and put some clear corners and grille inserts in


had some tie rod clearance issues, but i replaced all the steering components...








towed a big ass trailer... not really


put an xtreme bumper on it










picked up a B&M short throw for a camaro t-5 and had it modified... sorry no pics on this one yet


bought caddy tails (dont hate, i love them)


wrecked it...


fixed it the same day








put ss mirrors on (also in pic above^)




put LED gauge lights in




cut my bumpstops off



next i'm throing in my old system from my other truck



Since i wrecked it, i'm shaving it and painting it. the tail gate handle shaver is getting welded sunday along with the antenna hole since i never replaced the antenna with the fender swap.

header is going on probably tomorrow before work

plans besides shaving and paint are
98+ front end
Noma hood
underdrive pulleys
e-fan
1.6 roller rockers
2wd blazer sway bars/zq8 sway bars
cavilear seats
rollpan welded smooth
licence plate bucket in tail gate
wheel spacers for the rear
2 more inch drop all around

so after 9 hours of work, its in... but not tight. long story, if your changing your header(s) plan for many many set backs.

it better be finished by tomorrow or im gonna flip.

anyway, ordering my rollpan this week! and most likely the tail light shavers and caddy tail buckets

well, no real updates, just started wiring up the system and figuring out new grounds... but then i came across this.... and might add it to the collection for 4 grand.


what do you guys think? it would take me selling almost everything i own to afford this on a college budget and stay in school. but god damn do i want it :(

quit taping squares around your bodywork when you shave things, idk how many times we have to tell people..

youll find out when you go to finish the bodywork and a square ghosts through.


otherwise everything looks sick and keep up the work
