|Welcome to my progress page on the restification of my 85 S-10 pickup
Since the November of '01, I have been tearing apart my baby. I am restifying (restoration with modifications) my S-10 pickup that currently has around 600k miles on mostly stock equipment.
I intend to keep progress here to help my visitors and give an idea of what I'm up to.
Check back frequently as I update any time I've torn into something new or completed something I've been working on...or about 5 times a month!
Take some time to look around, and sign my guestbook when I get it up!

I've driven this truck since I got my license in 1990. I've put many miles on it in my travels to Montana, Colorado, South Dakota, and Kansas. I've had a few problems with it in the last year, none of which were terribly major, but I decided it was as good of time as any to make some major changes and give it a face-lift. I parked it around the spring of 2001 and got the Blazer in July which I've been driving since.
The truck moved into the garage at my next apartment, and I immediately began tearing in. So far, I've cleaned up the entire front and rear frame, removed the engine, tranny, drive shaft, steering column, doors, bed, fuel tank, the entire front clip, and both the front and rear suspension components.
The rear suspension components have recently been replaced and the brake drums rebuilt.
This would be the "almost before" picture. I didn't get many pictures of the truck before I started tearing in, and I was painting the bumper, grill, and bezels in this pic, so they're missing.
Let this serve as the "Before pic"
