You're off to a good start, Jared.
That looks like a nice little truck, too. I've been toying with getting an S-10/15 for myself, if I can find one in nice shape. If it's as nicely-appointed as yours, that makes it all the more appealing.

Thanks guys! Yes it is a bravada bumper, which is extremely rare here in Canada because they never sold bravada's here so I was very surprised to find one in the junkyard.
My truck was a bare bones truck, but I added the power/heated leather seats(though the heat don't work), has no ac, no power locks/windows, really it's a base model truck with the sls package. But I love it because the color is pretty rare and I keep doing more things to it to improve it all the time.

Well I got some work done on this one. I got the cabs glued together, interior tub lengthened, and chassis stretched. Now I have to attach the roofs together and start shaving the extra door handles and body lines. I am going to shave the tail gate also because that is something I want to do with the 1:1. I am also going to work on the rear ext cab windows because the opening needs alot of work to appear correct.
Now I need to find a set of mirrors like this in scale, I recently put them on.
Now the model:

Hey Jared, those mirrors closely resemble the ones I used on my X-Cab S-10. They're from the Polar Lights/AMT 05 GTO.

Hmmm I might have to look at the amt 04 I got laying around.
Anyways we got hit hard today so I didn't have to work. So off to the model room I went!
Found some seats that are similar to the '98 jimmy buckets I put in the 1:1. I will fill and re scribe the correct pattern.
I took this pic during the swap, old seat on the left.
more pics of the interior so far:
Then I worked on the suspension, had to modify the front end so the wheels would tuck properly. I also lengthened the exhaust and removed the rear bump stops since I cut them off the 1:1 already.

Then I did some work to the ext cab window openings and took some more mock up pics since I was board.
I also got corvette brakes all the way around since that is something I also want to do to the truck eventually.

Thanks guys. I'm building this as the way I want to finish the truck. The front end in the 94 isn't even close, I want this build to be as accurate as possible so I will scratch build everything that I need. The front actually shouldn't be too hard once I started thinking about it.

Well I started to play around with the front end tonight after work. Looks like I got a solid plan on how I will do the front end.
Still needs alot of work but I put some tape on the bumper and where the headlights will be once finished to give me an idea how everything will look in scale.
The updates from now on will slow down but I had alot of free time this weekend and knocked out a bunch of work on this thing.
