    got the new wheels mounted up. at this point im not real sure what will happen to the truck. after putting the wheels on, my previous shake has gotten worse. im positive its the wheels so ill probably end up with new wheels. but im irritated to the point where ive contemplated bringing it back to stock and just dailying it. i still have my 16" pentas and theres some 16's for $60 on craigslist...just have to find the funds

    Aw man...sorry to hear about the figment issues. Don't let yourself get discouraged man...look at me, I've been talking about bagging a truck for over a year now, still haven't found the right truck. This stuff takes time and persistence, man.

    Anyway, I understand if you take the S-10 back to stock, but you best find something else to work your magic on in the meantime. Stance bug bites hard, man, you ain't gonna shake it.

    truck projects have been a bit halted lately. swapped the stock hood back on, pulled the headliner today to re-glue it, and lastly i grabbed some big exhaust tips from an old truck i used to own. gonna see about making a new exhaust here soon.

    anyways heres my life lately:

    being white girls with frands


    day drinking kayak hangs with my little bro


    and lastly the truck with stock hood and new wheels

    So awesome to see more progress on the truck. Wheels are lookin' fresh and it looks better with the stock hood IMHO.

    Also, nice signature lol.

    currently on the hunt for stock wheels, maybe aftermarket. just need wheels that arent bent and that are hubcentric. also, it was a solid line lol

    hey guys, its been a minute. quite a bit has happened.

    the truck got some new wheels and tires. it no longer shakes, but now tire rubs fender lol


    ive been avoiding automotive shit. playing pool, and drinking has been my norm lately


    went to cedar point and this is about the best that came of it


    some violently strong beer


    and then i can only assume this was a product of my drinking...i bought not one, but 2 non running b5's. the truck will be sold as soon as i get one of these running.


    i currently already have b6 sport wheels, and have ordered boost gauge, and inline fuel pressure gauge. the good car will start and then the second you touch the throttle it dies. stick around to see if i figure this shit out lol

    this is the only picture ive taken of the truck lately. my crank pulley is wobbling like i spun a main bearing, as well as the battery is dead almost everytime i try to start it. im trying to get the audi running now so i can park this and work on it over the winter.

    been messing with the truck a decent amount. nothing cool though. picked up a new crank pulley. then the battery, starter, and cable that goes from battery to starter all decided to give out. so i spent about a straight week trying to figure that out.







    tore the dash apart in search of something wrong


    and also figured out what scrapes lol along with a decent patch on the bottom of the bellhousing

    today i got the interior back together and drove the truck for the first time in a week. feels so good to not have to worry about if its going to start or not. also changed out my steering wheel for another one i had. it was off so i figured why not, i feel like it looks a bit better in the truck. im sure ill go back though since this one is about 1/4 the price of my other one lol

    well i spent my morning getting the truck unstuck. i knew it was bad in the snow but didnt realize it was practically undriveable lol supposed to be much warmer tomorrow so hopefully the snow melts and i can actually get this thing in the garage. i just parked it back in its spot today since i didnt wanna get stuck in the road or at the end of my driveway. if all goes well i will probably have updates again tomorrow.

    well, sadly the snow didnt melt nearly as fast as i wanted it to. supposed to be warm all day and even warmer tomorrow so i think i should actually be able to start tomorrow. heres 2 random pictures



    heater box will be going, coolant overflow will most likely becoming a bottle right now until i buy one from jegs, washer fluid resevoir relocated or removed, ecu will be moved into the cab behind the glovebox, and then ill be tucking as many wires as i can. eventually i would like to delete the abs on the right side but i gotta talk to one of my buddies who has done it to figure out exactly what all is needed.


    stay tuned, ive fallen for this thing all over again and im really stoked to get started on it!

    i have been looking into them but atm i dont posess the skills necessary haha

    almost every bit of snow we had here melted this morning so i finally got the truck moved into the garage. didnt have much time but i did get the battery, ecu, and coolant overflow pulled out. tomorrow or this weekend im gonna try to pick up some misc parts (brake lines, fittings, brake line cutter, wire wrap, etc) so i can pull even more stuff off and get to moving things and tucking wires!

    nearly froze to death today. got the hood, bumper cover, fender, and grill off. next up is pulling the heater box (fender had to come off to do so) once thats done i really think ill end up pulling the wiring harness so i can delete all the unnecessary wires; ac, abs, etc

    spent the morning pulling the heater box, and labeling wires. took out all the bolts i could see for the heater and then proceeded to just destroy it with a wonder bar lol but, its out and thats all i really care about.



    need to find a way to cover the holes as well as pull the dash and get rid of all heat/ac related stuff. as soon as everything i want to delete is gone i can pull the harness and bring it inside. then i can start getting rid of all the unnecessary wires, and extending the appropriate ones for a cleaner harness.

    Made a block off plate and picked up a hella cheap rearend from a buddy. Not great but 3:42's are much better than 3:08's.

    You’re gonna see some big improvements with that 3:42. 3:08s suck in most situations. I guess they put them in there for towing or emissions or some other bularky but...come on GM.

    They are super highway gears but they'll still light the TIRE up lol im excited to see what the 3:42 can do, probably gonna end up welding it since it was so cheap

    Also forgot to post that I snagged a base model mirror which looks alot like the sport mirrors that are way expensive on eBay. Just gotta find a driver side

    well, today i finally freed the wiring harness from the truck. had to get it in the air to unplug two trans sensors and also cut one of the grounds from the back of the heads. but, its out and i can finally start getting to work on it.

    the picture dosnt do it justice, it looks so much better without any wiring laying on the motor


    and the harness. all of the big wire conduit is already torn off. tomorrow i will start cutting off the tape and cutting out wires. once thats done im gonna route the sensor wires seperately in their own coduit so i dont have an entire wiring loom hanging out on the valve cover like it was (check previous pictures)

    spent the morning ripping off the last of the wire wrap, pulling out the a/c and abs wiring and then attempting to tape it so i can reroute it better. it isnt going to end up being much of a wire tuck. it has more turned into routing wires in a more presentable way. tomorrow ill probably go grab some stuff so i can wrap up the project and put it back in the truck. im really over the whole ordeal and i really want to get on to the other cool projects i have planned at this point.



    all the wires and wrap that came off the harness

    Man take your time, since you have to put the harness back on just cut and extend the wires to route them away from sight and it will be so worth it I promise
    It looks tedious but once you get a hang on it it's actually pretty easy and as a total-shaved bay owner I must say there is nothing I'm more proud of than the empty space around the engine

    there isnt much room to tuck all the wires. they will in the end (hopefully) look better and there should be much more room around the bay. this could absolutely just be the beginning too, now that i know where alot of things go and i have routed the harness my own way i may start moving, and extending wires later. this isnt the end of my wiring adventure lol im just really sick of having to deal with it atm

    Got back in the garage this morning and started putting the harness back in. Passenger side needs a few words extended. I got two done and then had to start getting ready to head out for the weekend. When I come back I will extend the injectors, map, coolant sensor, and Iat wires so that I can have a much smaller harness running on top of the valve cover. The wires that are extended in the pictures will end up getting a wire wrap on them so there isnt just wiring hanging out.









    Also went to the junkyard yesterday and snagged some metal valve covers so I can color match them, a really dope oem obs Silverado work light, and a few other small things. Really happy that things are finally coming together.

    Was supposed to buy some wheels last night but they ended up selling. So, instead I bought a bunch of other shit lol egr block off plate, drivers side mirror, 2 toe straps to use for door pulls when I make sheet metal door panels, and then some led bars to replace my current under truck lights.
