2nd Gen S10 "Doored"

Posted (edited) · Report post

In an effort to keep the projects "seperate" I figured I'd slowly create a thread on each as I made progress.

So in the 1:1 world, there are many trucks that are laid out with air suspension or hydro's, some that lay the rocker (called "bodied" for slang usually) and some that are even cut to the point where the rocker is cut off and the bottom of the door is "capped" this is considered "doored" for slang.

This one is somewhat still up in the air at the moment, but I picked up a set of scale steelies from Aoshima (for me the wheels are the mainstay of the builds to get the ball rolling.)

Now previously I had set my sights on using a set of the scale racing hart c5's from a HiLux kit, may still go that route, but would be stripping the chrome i think.

Motor wise for this one I have a resin 10-71 and a shotgun scoop that I may utilize just so it has that "oh my" factor lol

thanks! yeah the racing harts are going to be it, really entertaining the idea of stripping the chrome at the moment.

I bought some aluminum flat stock, going to start making some items, as in bed floor and such from it as an experiment. gas door, side moldings will also cease to exist.

I remember that s10, thing was sick. I love flames but I liked this truck a lot more without them. Kind of reminds me of that red ext cab doored s10 that I believe was called "red dog", "big dog", something like that.

Man, I used to go onto s10Forum all the time. I think my s/n was Blzer2BNoticdNJ or something like that. For the same reason as Stephen, I haven't posted on that site, streetsourcemag, blazinlow, or any of them forums for a long time.
