THE REVEAL!

i just cant wait any longer and i did ALOT of cutting today. 15 saw zaw blades later, and 7 hours of cutting with that and the plasma i have not quite a mockup, but you get the idea.... no turning back now!

cutting the old cab in half. yes in half...those green tape lines were to fuck wtih you guys, they dont actually mean anything :)

and more cutting....

and this is as far as i got today. not quite mockup but here it is. it is NOT a crew cab, it is NOT a backwards cab, but a double cab (literally) and ext ext cab (someone said this earlier i believe :) ) this will let me put my seat back further with all my speakers, and allow me to fit MORE speakers!!!! and correct me if im wrong, but i belive this is the ONLY doored ext ext cab 1998+ s10 in the world...

the 3rd door will be huge, i was gonna do double doors but cant seem to get the geometry to work with the body lines. the suicide hinges are gettin sold, well hopefully traded for some new tail lights. at the rate im going i should have this cab mostly welded up by the end of the weekend, then its frame time......

the frame: is NOT getting longer! it will be the same length for one reason and one reason only: so it can fit in my garage. i was originally gonna take both of my beds and weld them together and make a 30' s10, but im not leaving this thing in the driveway! so as I build the sfbd frame, it will 1/4in walled 2x3, narrowed about 8 inches and sent straight back. on the stock frame where it kips up for the bed will remain flat until the rear axle (this will make sense later) and i have an interesting canti design in the works. my homey ryan whos letting be barrow is plasma is gonna water jet my brackets for me at his work. this thing is gonna be gangsta!

heres a shitty rendering of what its gonna look like. work with me, im a fabricator not a graphic designer! if somebody would like to do a better one for me id really appreciate it! the only part i think looks goofy is where the ext cab windows meet, because one side of the window is square, the other is round. so its gonna be a wedge looking peice of sheetmetal ont he upper pillar. in my rendering it looks really bad cause i drew it in paint and just copy pasted and shit till it looked decent enough to get the point across

also this weekend il post more detailed pictures of how im building this cab. theres alot of factors to take into account: the exterior lines of the truck, the amount of bodydrop allowing head room (this is hard to explain, but i will show when i get to that stage), not cutting so much out of the doors that i cant build my subframe floor, interior bracing, integrating factory bracing to hold the bodylines and structural integrity, the tranny tunnel (which will be lifted due to the bodydrop) , how the cab is going to mount to the frame, how the new windows are going to mount (if you have ever removed s10 cab windows youd understand, il take pics), maintaing the roof shape (you can see how im going to actually cut half of the new cabs roof to keep the bodyline) and god damn much much much more im prolly forgetting cause iv been up for 29 hours.... wel see if anyone even reads this novel anyway :P
