Boy, this looks great. 

Just a note, and I don't know if it applies in all cases, but on my Dad's S-10 Extended Cab...that hump/box thing on the back of the cab wall was in the middle and not on the passenger side.  Not sure what it is, even - but thought I'd toss it out there.

 

Again, this is some nice looking work.   If you don't mind my asking, how did you extend the cab?  I assume two kits?  Are there pictures up of that part of the progress?

That hump in the back is the jack stowage area. I believe your right it was more to the center. I took mine out for a speaker box so it didn't have it for very long....

Not sure why I didn't take pics of the early steps of the cab splicing, but that's what I did. I sliced off the back 2mm or so of one cab, then measured carefully and cut the rear scale 18" of the second cab, then mated them. I did need to add a thin sheet of styrene to the rear piece's roof to decrease the overall roof taper, but just the usual careful measuring and flat, flush joints were required.

 

If anyone has a clear shot of the rear area of the extended cab, on both sides, please let me know. It's been near impossible to find a clear image which shows the shape of each jump seat in the folded up position as well as what the interior side panels look like.

I would appreciate it, Terry. Even on the S-10 forums I haven't had any luck.

Imagine going down the road wedged behind a seat sitting on that padded piece of plastic. Doesn't seem like the safest idea.

No it sure isn't. I've done it a couple times...and I'm 300 lbs! Although I'm sure that my size ensured i was wedged and wasn't going anywhere. This is just another reason these made great places for an amp rack or small speaker boxes

Nice work Casey. I had a '92 S-10 Club cab with standard size bed. Nice truck. Sounded great after I went with dual exhaust from the cats back and no mufflers! It eventually succumbed to the ravages of snow & salt in the Chicago area. I did buy a resin cast kit from Perry's. started it and never finished as the truck became worse for wear.

Thanks, guys. Progress has slowed, but this project is still moving forward.

 

I needed to separate the door panels from the inner quarter panels/jump seat surrounds, so I simply scribed through the recess which was already present, and voila':

 

doorpanels102913.jpg

 

 

I looked at bunch of different first gen extended cab pictures and noticed the raised area which runs side-to-side at the back of the cab floor. I added that raised area using some rectangular styrene rod, but it ended up being too tall, so I had to removed it, along with the rear wall of the cab. There were two rectangular blocks in each rear corner which weren't supposed to be there, too, so that gave me another reason to remove the entire rear interior wall and replace it with a slightly thicker piece of sheet styrene. Once the new rear wall was in place, I added the new (and hopefully) more accurate raised area on the floor, then started working on the jump seat surrounds. I got the left side roughed in, but the gap between the seat bottom/trim panel and the surround is a bit too big, so that will get some attention.

 

Here's the seat bottom panel sitting loose in the surround:

Here's the entire LR corner area:

I worked on the bucket seats, too, scribing the areas between the backs and bottoms deeper, and defining the seat shapes a bit more on the thigh and side bolsters. Once the seats were placed in position inside the interior tub, I realized how little of the seat sides can be seen, so I'm not going too much further with them:

WOW! That is some FINite detail. I don't think Perry's went into the jump seat detail at all. Great work.
