After lots of careful splicing, test fitting, sanding, and the first coat of primer, we have something resembling a first gen S-series longbed:

Thanks, guys. The bed sides are the easiest parts to modify, and they're pretty much done now:

As for the bed floor and inner sides, there's a lot more work to be done, especially where the floor ribs butt together from the spliced sections. You can still see where those joints are, so once you can't, I'll be done:

I also started on an extended cab, too, but again, there's still a lot of work to be done. I've got the cab roof close to finished, but the rear quarter window areas need detailing, as well as the inside surfaces of the cab around the quarter windows. Here's where it's at so far:

Before frustration sets in on the bed ribs...spray in some textured paint or a bed mat ...just my two cents.

Cab body work is looking good from here too. Waiting to see how/what you do with the windows.

A bed cover would be easy, but the bottom of the bed would still need to be finished properly, so no sense in going only half way.

Nice work! I don't know if I've ever seen a long bed ext cab S10, this ought to be neat. Is this the one you were going to do a 4cyl too?

Casey, don't take this the wrong way, but your EXT cab rear windows are too small. I'll email you a picture if you like to show you what I mean,

Is this something you are going to resin cast or is it a project from your bench?

 

BTW- the S series trucks were never offered in extended cab/long bed configurations.

 

To Nick's comments, I think the windows need to be a bit wider to more accurate.

Yes, they are still a bit too small and need to be lengthened a bit, but they aren't finished yet. I need to figure out how I'm going to add the window glass lip/flange, and account for that first. Plus, it's easier to remove material than add it back in place. I have plenty of reference material for these trucks...well except for maybe some more shots of the Cameo body parts.

Maybe.

 

No, they didn't, but I like the longer look of the X-cab and longbed, so I'd like to try to build one eventually.

Keeping the one piece 93 grill in it? Or going with older 82-90 3 piece grill?

Also you wouldn't happen to have any extra bumpers laying around not going to be used for this kit would you? I've been on the hunt for a set, but with no luck.

I have an early style grille from Perry's Resin, so I will probably use it on the build. The '93 grille always looked kind of cheap to me.  :unsure:
