    A longer (slower) shifter may be better for the "other truck". You will find shifting isn't as neccesary as making sure parts last.


    Didn't seem like they were vented. I could be wrong, but I did pick up a vented cap anyway.

    Long time no post again. I've had some time off, but not a lot of initiative. Been somewhat waiting on finding a house, but a cold garage doesn't help either.

    Anyway I've got some temporary cross members in place to get the fuel cell mounted. I also modified the cell to fit my needs; swapped a fast fill neck in place of the cap, so I can run a remote filler and also added a hole to add a vent line.



    Here is a bunch of tools and supplies I've been gathering over the last month or so to finish this up. Still trying to figure out how I'm going to bend the 1/2" fuel line without having to order a $100 tool. I may break down and do it, but I'd rather not wait until after Christmas.



    Other than bending the line I just need to pick up some hardware to bolt the cell to the cross members.

    Didn't feel like stepping down the AN -8 fittings coming off the cell.

    Wow haven't updated this since the crash... whoops.

    Here are some current pictures. Picked up a frame a couple months ago. Going to have some fun with that and swap the body over. Supposed to pick up a 5.3 tonight, but it's not mine until it is in the bed of the S10.

    Also been cleaning up my spare set of blazer brakes and spindles this week. Since I can't put 2nd gen wheels (got two sets with new tires sitting around) on the 1st gen I'm going to swap the old brake rotors and pads off the Blazer onto the S10 after cleaning up the spindles and brakes again. Picked up some "racing" pads on clearance from tire rack and some fancy slotted rotors. Swapped it all on this weekend. Still need to bed the brakes, but don't know the next time I'll have a chance to do that. Anyway, more pictures.

    Haha I've give him crap for that all the time. Can you guess what other panel he sprayed?

    Good reason for a full spray next summer...

    Nope. He resprayed my passenger fender to get rid of the primer spot from shaving the antenae. They're friggin close, but you're right about the pewter and there hasn't been any blending.

    A couple years ago I clipped a cement block from an old light post in a parking lot. Short enough to go under the bumper, but not the frame. Truck still seems to drive fine, but I'd rather have an unmolested frame to start with. Plus it's easier to do a backhalf on a bare frame and I can still drive the truck while doing so.



    In other news the 5.3 is now sitting in my friend's barn waiting for fun.
