Good Afternoon All,

So what does it look like outside in the Sunlight

I would say it Copper & Champaign, however Bob swears it's silver & red.

Hi All,

It's all about the little details that no one may ever notice.

This is how the bed gap looks on a Stock s10 -- Not so good.



Sliding the bed forward you can solve the gap problem.
However, you will need to stiffen the chassis to prevent the bed from twisting and hitting the cab.



Of Course this then leads to the next problem.
The bed is just a little wider then the cab.



So off comes the bed.
Now it's time to drill out all of the spot welds that hold the bed sides on the truck

Just a close up of the fun that Dave had drilling spotwelds



It's not over yet - it's actually just beginning.
This is proof that you fix one problem and it just makes the other problems look worse.

You can see that the cab has an excessive curve to it - now that has got to get fixed.



You can see that Kenny is hard it here.
This is proof that Kenny is an all around Builder.



Time to start slinging some mud.

The bed had to come off so you can see the work Kenny did on the "B" Pillars



Now this is how it should have come from the factory



Still not Satisfied

Somethings is really wrong with Kenny.



Time to put some paint on it and make sure it looks good.
Yep - this is just a test paint.

Looks like they nailed it.



Notice the Cab Union is Nice and Straight.

Good Afternoon All,

I bought a set of seat on Ebay.
The goal was to see how they would look in the truck.

So Opinions are welcome.
Yes, they are different heights - we just bought them for the frames.







So what do you all think ??

Good Morning All,

As everyone know's i'm a big fan of Bell Tech.
I've used there stuff on all of my truck builds and it's worked out great each and every time.



Previously installed on the truck was there Sway Bar.
www.belltechcorp.com





When Precision Brakes built my front Brake Kit they used a generic Spindle.
The intention has always been to install Bell Tech Drop Spindles.

This is where I normally would insert a picture of the actual spindle they shipped me.
However, we all know Kenny's not good with the Camera so the guy's at Bell Tech sent me a nice image.



I really happy to working with another great company and I look forward to working with them on future projects.

ps - don't worry I have 4 more posts sitting in the que

Good Morning All,

Yet, another modification that is so simple and may never be noticed.

From the Factory the body line on the "A" pillar was going in the wrong direction.



It actually touched the corner of the fender and was about 3/4" up near the door.



After a little metal work it looks stock.



It's all the little details that make the difference
