    Thanks, pics don't even show how reflective it is. It's shiny like chrome just without the mirror reflection or cost

    ¬* Thanks for the info on that Chrome powdercoat.¬* I was hesitant and thought it would be a waste of $$$$ but now that i tried it last night, i'm ready to do everything with it and wish i would have tried it a long time ago
    I KNOW WHEN I FIRST USED IT I WAS SURPRISED HOW GOOD IT LOOKED

    The factory front grey pillow tops are pretty worn and are starting to rip and crack all over, the price of using the car as a daily i suppose. I got a few estimates on re-upholstering pillow tops and it's just not in my budget right now . I do have a set of light tan cloth pillow tops but i just don't think the color's right for my ride.

    The black seats are just to change it up for now and have something fresh to sit on. I actually have that back seat pictured in black along with the factory buckets in the same material along with an extra passenger front (60/40 style with the armrest) just in case i feel the need to change it up again before i have some pillow top seats redone.

    Too late for that, my door panels are done, and some panels are already painted. I'm just leaving it all grey and black inside for now and not trying to buy new carpet that i'm just going to change out anyways. White carpet wouldn't work out too well in a daily driver either

    Got some 2 ton springs cut to 3 1/2 turns and flattened on the top for the new rear set up.


    Before



    After, chrome powdercoating



    I had to modify the metal rack in the oven to fit the spring, was a tight fit :0



    Finally cut the front out using a 1 3/4" Rigid hole saw i got from Home Depot for $10. It cut the metal like butter



    removed front sway bar and end links along with shocks and cut out the frame for cylinders

    Tore the hell out of the rear brake hose, luckily i was close to home.¬* I guess the bolt that holds the stock brake hose to the differential should have been taken out after installing the coilover setup.¬* With 10" cylinders it was completely stretched with the car locked up and finally ripped at the bottom.
    New longer hose is 18.75" long and will be perfect when i swap to 14" cylinders.





    I can't believe it didn't rip in half when i originally had CCE 2 ton pre-cuts because it had the car sitting 2-3" higher than how the 3 1/2 turns of a stock caprice spring has the car sitting.¬* They started to settle a little more than i thought and there's only about 1/2" between top and bottom cups so new springs should be here this week.


    Hey bro, where did you find that extended brake hose? Thats what I need.

    you finally cut the front

    look inside that hole you cut,see them teeth that are supposed to hold the coil in place......cut them off,or use vice grips and bend them side to side till the break off(the easiest way ive found) that will lead to that spring tower ripping open

    Autozone, part #77851 $12.99, just tell them you need a rear hose for a '99 S10 4 x 4(4 wheel drive). Exact same thing an offroad shop was trying to charge me $45 for Should work with up to 16's .

    In that second pic this, the car was all the way lifted with 10" cylinders and 3 1/2 turns of stock coil to give you an idea of how much more hose there is.

    Yeah, would have been done a long time ago but i lost interest a little after the engine went and the weather turned so cold. That's the plan with the those teeth, can't wait to put all the fresh suspension on it
