    I'm an import guy when it comes to compact pickups, but I've always loved those style of S-10 (The first 2 linked). I've wanted one since they switched the headlamps in 1998, 5 speed and the 2.2 would make an awesome commuter. Those are some clean trucks you guys, can tell a lot of hard work and time went into them.

    mines actually a 2000 sonoma, but it is a 5-speed with a 2.2L. one day i hope to turbo it as well with a full motor build. and really you can get a 94-97 and convert the headlights and stuff over to be a 98+ style. or vise versa. you can also swap over from s-10 style to sonoma style and vise versa.

    but yeah i got the truck when i was 17 and been working on it since then. im now 21 1/2

    made some more progress today. got the cab lined up evenly, then got the bed lined up all good. started to weld the back wall of cab and realized the floor was at an angle so we had to push the cab back further. now theres not a huge gap and we just need to straiten out the back wall since it got welded in a little crooked. no big deal though, going over tomorrow to work on it some more.

    I'll always be a mini trucker, but want to build something later down the road, like out of highschool. Want to start with a truck not already bagged. So it can be done right the first time.

    its better to start with one already bagged with a decent setup so that you can learn more about it first if you know what i mean. and it looks like it has a pretty good setup on it. i say just keep it man

    well in my sick time my buddy kept working some. so i have to make templates for more of the sides wich are roughly 50% welded in, that way he can finish those up. the rear of the cab is welded 95% of the way across, and the front of the cab were going to pinch together what we can to just weld up. the rest we have to make filler panels for as well. then we still have to get the wheel tubs all welded in up front. then all the body work that goes with all of this lol. oh and weld the braces underneath for the cab around body mounts back together lol.

    also have to cut the inner section of fenders off to clear the wheels, drop my front frame horns down and weld it all back together........ theres still alot to do but hey its getting there so im happy right now lol.

    the goal was going to be have it done by april 12th so i could go to a huge show with it april 13-15 but....................... with me and him both getting sick and not much getting done, and him getting another truck as well that hes been working on i doubt it will be done by then. which im ok with because im still trying to find a job so i wouldnt have funds even if i did have the time off to go anyway. but the show season is just starting then. so if i can get just the cab done and drive her bedless this season i would be happy

    Really nice looking truck, however I'm not kidding when I say I like your rims better.
    The black 'wide spoke' with the red paint looks killer.

    so basically the guy helping me completely screwed me over. in our contract it said a price would be agreed upon even. then all of a sudden i owed him $600 for practically nothing as you can see from the above pics. well needles to say i paid him and got my truck home yesterday just so it would be out of harms way, because i think the guy is a little nutty upstairs to be honest. so much for being my friend i guess. so now i will be more than likely just saving up money and taking it to a shop to both fix what he did and have it finished. then i can drive her again.
