X cab or STD cab for Rod project?
As some may have read on a thread I put in the lounge. I'm going to take an S10 or Ranger, cut the cowl off ( leaving firewall ), remove front sheetetal and bed. construct 30's style cowl, extend roof over the A and B pillar 'mounts' for vertical pillars and flat glass .. and add a stake bed and build a truck reminescent of the 30's... originally I thought an X cab with filled in rear windows ( reconstructed rear window of course ) and a rake would look good, but I'v found a '92 S10 Reg cab 5spd thats right priced and thinking, Reg cab might be better.. I know for it to fit my vision, it will almost have to have the Rake.. should I hold out for the X cab or settle on the Reg cab?

SETTLE for NOTHING or you'll be disappointed in the end. Just because the reg is priced right, if your vision is an extended, then get one. Those trucks should be cheap enough anyway, that it wouldnt be a big deal to wait. They are on Craigslist here all the time.

yea. it needs the long roof to make the Rake steep enough for my likes, and look right
