I can try and get some pics this weekend, I don't have any of the underside on my laptop right now. I originally cut the fenders out to have it lay frame, but after I z'ed the rear of the frame I liked the nose-high aired-out look so I just left the front suspension at stock height.

here's a whole s10 thread: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=38668&hl=

and here's a few of mine.

Monogram 93 s10

My 1:1, 99 sonoma 4.3 auto. Smokey caramel metallic paint, Bravada front bumper, ss street scene mirrors, 18in ridler 695's, De-badged and de-striped, cut bump stops, leather/power seat swap. Hoping to get the full zq8 suspension package on it here soon(front coils, leaf springs, shocks, and front/rear sway bars) and also tint the windows, clear headlights, smoked tails and a magnaflow exhaust.

Oooooh I love me some S-Series trucks! I dig the pics, 1:1s and models. I've got a few planned for the hobby bench but like Jared said, my full scale needs some attention this spring. MN weather had been teasing us these past two months.

Jared, I just went through that thread that you linked, I was thinking about that when I saw this one but couldn't remember how long ago it was. Your truck has come a long way from that first pic you posted, looking good!

1990 Silverado C1500 Flareside. 1st Reissue, modded the rear bed to make it more like a Step Side. Might strip and repaint.
