  1. "you can literally cruise the vistas" -- Red, that 70s show
  2. thanks carl that is exactly what I am looking for to the T I had them in the real truck so I defiantly want to pick those up i'm going to go with the bigger wheel off the old s-10 I kit bashed for parts I don't like the irocs which is a shame cause I paid 10 bucks for them they just are to small and don't fill the wheel well as for the mirrors im sure I will have to search kits to find them I am going to scratch build the msd box I just have to get someone who makes decals as I don't have any of the stuff nor a good printer for them to make me an msd decal, a k&n decal, Lakew
  3. HERE IS ANOTHER PHOTO OF THE REAL TRUCK PRIOR TO TAKING OFF THE BLACK MOLDING AND WHEN IT HAD UNIVERSAL TRACKTION BARS THAT WERE YELLOW , I LATER TOOK THE MOLDING OFF AND WENT WITH THE SPECIFIC MADE TRACTION BAR FOR THE S-10 THAT WERE BLACK WITH YELLOW BUMP STOPS RATHER THAN YELLOW AND GOT MUCH BETTER RESULTS AND LESS WHEEL HOP OUT OF THEM SO I I THINK IM GOING TO GO WITH THE MOLDING ON THE MODEL AND I THINK IM MAY PAINT THE TRACTION BARS YELLOW TO MAKE THEM STAND OUT AS THAT WAS A BIG JOKE WITH MY FRIENDS BACK IN THE DAY THEY USED TO BUST MY BALLS AND CALL THEM SKIES AND WHEN I RACED IT
  4. FRAME UPDATES COMING SOON JUST PUT THE LAKEWOOD TRACTION BARS TOGETHER AND THEY LOOK GREAT PHOTOS SOON LOOKING FOR AN MSD BOX AND SOME KIND OF GAUGE PILLAR FOR THE A- PILLAR TO HOUSE 2 AUTOMETER STYLE GAUGES FOR THIS TRUCK JUST PICKED UP A MONSTER TACH FOR IT ALSMOST HAVE ALL THE OTHER PROFORMANCE PARTS I HAD PUT ON THE ORIGINAL ITS COMING TOGETHER SLOW BUT I WANT IT THE WAY THE 1/1 WAS AND THE EXTRA PARTS ARE KEY FOR ME TO HAVE IT THE WAY I WANT IT ONE MORE THING I HAD LATER PUT CAL VIEW MIRRORS ON THE TRUCK AND THEY LOOKED GREAT ON THE 1/1 AND IM NOW LOOKING FOR SOME CAL VIEW STYL
  5. P.S THANK YOU SLUSHER FOR THE DRAG RADIAL RIMS THAY ARE PERFECT FOR THIS TRUCK PLEASE LEAVE COMMENTS ON WHICH FRONT RIMS TO USE IM LEANING TOWARDS THE 80S S-10 STOCK STYLE AS THE IROCS SEEM A LITTLE SMALL TO ME HARD TO TELL IN THE PHOTO THOUGH AS THEY ARE NOT ON THE FRAME AND WILL SIT LOWER OFF THE BODY AND HAVE MORE GAP I DONT WANT TO SLAMM THE TRUCK ITS ALL ABOUT MAKING IT AFTER THE 1/1 PICTURE THE IROCS GIVE IT MORE A MINI LOW RIDER FEEL WITH NO SIDE WALL ON THE TIRE AT ALL AND THE TRUCK IS MORE STREET/ STRIP AS I USED TO DRAG RACE IT ON THE TRACK LOVE THE RIMS DONT LIKE THE TIRES
  6. UPDATE: got some rims for the drag radials they are a dead match also picked up a set of irocs for pegisius for the front but may use the stock rims off the 80s s-10 cause they are closer to the one of one truck.... worked on the door trim a little still needs much more attention but wanted to see the look may still shave it off and go for a smooth look as I had the trim on my truck and I took it off after a few years so that's still in the air o and I made a custom duel electric fan set up as I had put a Camaro fan set up in my truck and want to make it as close to the original tru
