Can you see how we did rhino liner from the trim line down? Fixed all the rust, patched the holes and put in new metal all around the kick panels and fenders. Joe does really nice work. We had enough rhino liner to do the bed to. Thanks JOE!!

And by the way guys he will gladly paint your motorcycle parts, fix fiber glass bodywork and any body work on your vehicle. Let me know if you are looking to get anything done and I will get you in contact with him.

Now all we need is to put a 350 in it. The problem is the V6 4.3 vortec still runs perfectly. "knock on wood".

Aside from the lack of full automatic weapons sticking out of the hood, it's perfect. Nice work to all.

Be careful with the "old guy" comments. He gets a little sensitive about that.

What are you looking to do? Paint the entire thing? Does it need body work?

With materials and everything and if really no body work, rust or dent repair is needed it's about a g note.

Thanks Nick, yeah, that is about the job. The shops tell me about 900-1000. Was hoping to do it for less. It isn't worth 2k total with new paint.

What year is that thing? If it's 1996 or newer you are pretty much fucked as far as putting a 350 in it, thanks to the emissions test.

I owned and built a couple S10s with 350s in them. They're cool.

What about a old 287 or even 305? - Same issues?

Even with the massive weight diff from the Gutless and this S-10? - Throw a 411 in the rear and just LIGHT 'EM UP?

That was a miserable evening at Blackhawk Patrick. For sure.

You can get the 350 in there but you have to bash the the fire wall in. The 4.3 does well. I think if anything with a chip, exhaust and a turbo like they put in the typhoons and cyclones it should go pretty good. No plans for any of that though. I'm trying to prep a 600

The only way I can see it working is swapping the entire ECM, cats, and harness that it will have the OBDII connector.


But I don't know if the state checks the computer ID to verify if it is a different motor.
