Well I just finished this for a April build off on another group. Here's a list of mods:

Monogram Chevy s10 "waverider"

Mechanical mods:

- 5.3l LS swap
- 6.2l escalade intake
- A/C and heater delete
- Custom motor mounts
- Custom intake
- Exhaust modified and custom tip
- Lowered suspension (front springs and block in rear)
- Notched rear frame for rear axle clearance
- Big brake upgrade front and back
- Aftermarket 19in wheels

Exterior mods:
- Shaved door handles
- Shaved tailgate and rear end
- Shaved gas door
- Custom roll pan
- Flip down hidden license plate
- Hood and bed cover have scratch built functioning hinges
- Shaved firewall
- Bed cover smoothed and spolier removed
- Custom two tone pearl white and gunmetal with red accent stripe

Interior mods:
- 65 Chevy truck dash narrowed to fit
- 69 camaro buckets seats narrowed to fit
- 99 Chevy Silverado door panels modified
- Stock center console modified to be a 5 speed
- carpeted floor

This kit had some cool custom mini truck parts but it needed updating and so I think I achieved what I wanted.


Thanks for looking.

Outstanding rebuild on this little S10. The extra details with the license plate and the bed cover shocks add to the realistic look. I could see owning a 1:1 version of this. Great tutone paint job.
