Warmed up the garage and started tearing apart my harness to start on the firewall bulk head. I'm separating the coil wiring from out side of firewall to inside since they are mounting inside of firewall. less holes in wall. This is the final thing to do before the fire wall gets smoothed.

harness tear down.


all wiring is separated and ready to be cut.


holes drilled and bolted in. I wish i went with Deutsch connectors but i already bought these so ill rock them this time.




these are kinda bulky but functional.


Looking for pics of what ppl do for firewall smooths. ANY s10 or G-body guys care to share.

got a bunch done yesterday. got the dash in and a bunch of wiring cleaned up under it and loomed all the chassis wiring. started on the throttle cable bracket and fpr hoses also. interior looks damn good.







cant see any of the wiring from under the dash other than the hundred extra wires from the ultimate.


AFPR hose routed.




not much room in this area tho


easy access to fuses and relays if needed.



hopefully i get some parts in the next few days so i can finish the wiring and wire up a few pressure sensors also.

Ton of work got done yesterday. Finished all the engine wiring, added some new pos and neg bulk heads, pulled engine and trans, filled all the holes, and started the body filler. Back is messed up now lol.

picked up this steering wheel kinda like it.


new bulk heads.




engine gone


wire cleaned up


Fiberglass bondo first layer


started sanded but ran out of time. 10 hours in the garage was good enough for me.


Next is sanding all the smooth and using lightweight filler to fill any imperfections, then brake lines. Hope to have all the done this week or at least get started on brake lines. once all this is done and painted engine will go back in for im hoping awhile.

I have been following it since you started. I was on the dime forum, but am tired of the non-sense over there, so I will just continue to follow you here.

Looking really really good!

I'm following it here and on S10forum. lol

I don't spend a ton of time over there, but I haven't noticed too much BS. But I'm usually only in member projects and the LS swap forums.

i was down to just flaring the passenger last night n the bend going to the wilwood is borderline kinked so going to redo that one on wed. 25 foot was just enough to do the entire blazer tho with a few feet to spare. went ahead and added some fluid and only had one leak at line lock. gravity bled each caliper till fluid was pouring out and install the rod. brakes are hard to push but guess i better get used to it lol.





i will try to redo the one i fucked up then bleed it for good. replaced all the rubber lines while i was in there.

Next i might start tearing into my 8.8, not sure if ill leave in stock form for this year with a spool and decent shafts on 31 spline. How many have went 9 or 8s in stock spline?

Brakes are done. noticed that the rod wasnt straight at all using the power brake rod postiion so drilled a hole about 2 inches up. nice and straight now. brakes are vacuum bled going to put the gf to work and do a final bleed on them today. then ill clean up frame n paint then engine is going back in prolly.



Highly recommend this tool.



threw the net on to check measurements and found that i have to order a new one since this one is already expired

it was actually the easiest part of the install, i have more trouble bending the lines. super easy. just wish the die wasn't so long so i can flare it with out having to straighten the tubing.
