Don't know who sells them, but if they are out there for the s-10's you can find it in the rag "Mini Truckin". Not up on that stuff anymore, but I'm sure you'll find it in there. If not all it is,is sheetmetal, pretty basic to do at home with a sheet of metal and a few clamps and a welder. Let me know if you need anymore help.

Talk to Michael at Custom Classic. I got my entire keyless entry/alarm/remote start/etc from him.

hello, you could get the door solenoids out of a newer ford/chevy and mount them in side.To the tailgate rods. you will have to cut the rods to fit. once you have that done you can order a keyless entry system and wire it up . It works well Ive done several lowriders that way. JCWhitney has a good one and its cheap. Its made by Valiant 39.99. Its also very simple to hook up. There are also other company's out there you could get the system from. Dakota digital has some really nice ones. good luck

For the tailgate shave kit, go with Sir Michaels. There kit comes with a handle relocator to mount the handle on the inside of your tailgate and it also comes with a filler plate to shave up the tailgate. The kit fits really well I just installed one on my S-10 about a week ago.

As for the tail light fillers go to They sell filler plates to shave your tail lights. They will also do custom sheet matal work too.
