    I wish RAW would do something quick. I got rear-ended the other day and I got some money from insurance. Now I am debating whether or not to wait till RAW sells the damn thing or just put it back to stock.

    By the way, I removed the bumper and endcaps. I discovered in order to install a roll pan the frame rail will have to be cut off. Anyone with roll pans installed on their 2nd gen, what was the process in installation and all that jazz? Thanks.

    Well I have one side half way done and I dont have any pics yet. I will take pics of the other side when I do it. Basically what you do is take your cap off and cut it at an angle. I cut mine from wher it curves around all the way down to the tab that holds the bolt on the bottom.(if you take yours off you will see what I am talking about) Then cut about 4 1/2 inches out.I pushed it back together to look right and held it togrther with duck tape on the front. Then fiberglass the back to hold its shape. After that glass th front a little then bondo and sand it smooth. I am at that point now. I need to bondo but it already looks sweet and fits good. Ready for bondo and primer. Oh yeah loblzr told me to use kitty hair bondo on the front. Hope you understand.

    so all you have to do is modify the existing end caps and get a s10 roll pan, right? if so im glad im behind schedual because i was gonna go buy a s10 bed and cut the bottom off of it. but if this works thatll save me alot of money and time.

    Has anyone went to a shop and checked prices?? This 'ol country boy I met a couple of weeks ago has an older model silverado that he made a roll pan for. That thing was SOLID!!! He told me for about 350-400 he could make one for mine, but there's other things I need to take care of (like my 180,000 mile engine) before I do any body mods.

    What about the frame rails that stick out? And are you using the GM factory roll pan?

    can you smooth the plastic end caps to the metal panel above for a nice molded look?

    I already have bedsides...would it be easier to just mold the plastic ones? My bedsides I bought look like shit though, kinda bent and dented in some spots and need body work

    Well like 1st gen blazers you do have to cut the frame rails. As far as the roll pan , I am going to cut the step off the top, only laeve an inch or so and push it in even with my new sides.

    I am sure you could. just like molding gfx of something.

    It sounds like I started a trend..............Screw RAW and do it yourself. I wouldnt recommend molding the plastic into the metal because it WILL crack. I cut my frame rails off as close to behind the aft body mount as possible. Then I welded a 2" square tube in between the frame rails to replace the crossmember you just cut off with the frame rails, this gives you a good place to ziptie your license plate to (so you can drive legally) while your working on the rollpan and side skirts. I highly recommend you only use kitty hair (fiberglass reinforced bondo) as a filler, bodo isn't strong enough to avoid cracking, remember, its still plastic, it will vibrate, flex, and get bumped (mercy on the guy who does bump it though) Plain bondo will crack to easy, and the kitty hair is actually easier to work with than I thought. Just do the initial sanding with some good 40 grit, or you'll be working on it till next year. When the 2 shortened section are joined back together, they miss-match because of the angle of the body line, I sanded all the paint off and roughed up the plastic on both sides of the seams, and put a good thick layer of the kitty hair and sanded it so it all flowed together evenly, and doesnt look hacked up. Once the front is all smooth, and done to perfection (no half assing here cause people WILL look closely at mods like this) put several layers of glass cloth (or mat) on the back side (after cleaning and sanding) to reinforce the whole structure, because where the seam is will be the weakest point of it now.
