    thanks bro, i thought it looked alot better as well

    just got my headlights put in, the passenger side wiring is pretty well dicked and im at work. so ill have to mess with that tonight. probably just say fuck the next guy (or myself if i can actually keep it long enough) and just remove the sealed beam plug, then splice and heat shrink the wires together. could have just said hard wire lol

    Truck Looks good man! Color matching the groll helped a lot.

    Fwiw zq8 leafs are not the same as regular leafs with a leaf removed. Is it similar? Yes. But they both have differe t spring ratios. I remember reading a thread on it on s10f years ago. That being said, if you're not worried about ride, pull the leaf and don't look back. Idt you would tell much of a difference anyways imo.

    thanks for the compliment and info man! i probably will end up just pulling the leaf to save some money

    not much has been happening with the truck, pretty much just been enjoying cruising it. got some new centercaps the other day that im trying out. nothing special, just newer s10 centers so they are round. then this morning i wrapped my headliner. if im being honest it turned out pretty shitty, but its better than half of it sagging on whoever is riding with me. didnt cut out the visor holes since every visor in s10's at the junkyards are destroyed and i never use them anyways.





    its not everyones style, and its not 100% mine either. just trying to do something different. since it turned out rough im sure ill end up wrapping it again in the future

    headliner started sagging in the back by 7pm last night lol cut my muffler off today, the inlet had actually seperated from the muffler itself...so i found my biggest exhaust leak. its not real pretty, and somehow the truck is still real quiet. it has a little rumble, and it now sounds like it wants to backfire when im engine braking. ill get my buddy to help weld it soon. long term i would like to get a full exhaust made and have it exit out the bedsides. so this is more or less just temporary.



    i also may have found a sbc

    So spent some time this morning getting the garage cleaned up and getting my upper balljoints into the new speedway tubular UCA’s. took Friday off so ill have 4 days to get the front end rebuilt, the back lowered, and possibly some other stuff done. Along with that I have changed my mind on a few things and some new stuff is in the works. This truck made me rethink my wheel specs so sometime here soon ill be putting my back wheels on the front, and getting 15x10’s with 3” backspacing for the rear. Should be fairly aggressive….the drawing you will all just have to stick around to see whats going to come of that!

    i love it !!

    these trucks are so cool, the light pods look BADASS and the wheels work better in black

    cant help but think the front bumper may look better in matt black

    should be pretty good. getting 15x10 with 3" backspacing allows me to later swap them to the front, then buy ones with 2" backspacing for the rear and run those zr2 flares.

    thanks homie, im actually debating on white wheels now. black was cool at first but now it just seems boring. the bumper is eventually getting colormatched in teal. just trying to do less aesthetics and more stuff that actually will improve ride quality...its actually quite the piece atm lol

    very eventful weekend. oil change, new upper control arms, upper balljoints, extended lower balljoints, pulled a leaf in the rear, new rear shocks, cut the rear bumpstop brackets, picked up an edelbrock 10" air cleaner but need to figure out a way to put it on, also snagged some polyurethane sway bar bushings that need to go in. then i went for the first drive and scraped everywhere while i took chunks out of my rear passenger side tire. so thats pretty neat. made some pie cuts and bent it a bit but, im pretty done working on shit so i didnt put much effort into it.


    anyways heres some pictures

    the brackets not too pretty, but i got the air cleaner on. probably try to make a nicer bracket/bend some threaded rod to clean it up. works for now though.

    I'm in love with the wing, duck tails FTW.

    Did you take any inspiration from the Camping World Series racing trucks? It's starting to look like one, and I dig it.
