01-14-2012 09:10 PM S-10 TO ???????? STEERING SWAP
TRYING TO FIGURE WHAT TO SWAP ON THE S-10 STEERING TO SAVE SOME WEIGHT. POSSIBLY A VEGA BOX?? I THINK IT WOULD BE WAY TOO LOW TO TRY TO USE A RACK & PINION WITH THE REST OF THE S-10 SUSPENSION IN THE WAY.

01-24-2012 08:44 PM BACKBURNER PROJECT
This is the project I have been working on (read) "Off & On" for the last year & a half. Here are some pics as I retired it to the back garage in order to make room for the 1933 Plymouth 4dr that I acquired over the summer. My wife says it the Comet) was "butt ugly" when I got it 11+ years ago and that it is still that way now. So far I stripped it down to the inside walls, 3 x 4 framed it from the front frame rails back, 4-link, 11" engine set back, roll cage, had to make r/r short quarter(none available),(also my first attempt at curved body panels. Plans call for twin turbo 351W, C-6 w/trans brake, all wheel disc, and one piece steel hydraulic push out & tilt front end. (It's easy to dream, harder to get there, but a lot of fun trying). Hope to get back to it this summer after 33 Ply is on the road again.
