1952 Chevrolet 3100 on s10 frame with LSX- build thread
 
So I figured I might as well make a build thread. I started out with a 1984 single cab long bed S10, a front clip, a cab from a 52, a short box from a 49 and a 1999 4.8 litre and a 4l60e. I paid 300 for the s10 delivered, 800for the clip and cab and title, and 300 for the 49 box. The truck will be matte bright white with gloss black grille, bumper, door handles... All the trim. Cab is sound deadened with fat mat. I have Dakota digital vhx gauges, vintage a/c, stern beast 20" wheels, tanks Inc fuel tank and set up, psi wiring harness... And a bunch of other nice parts for it, I designed custom hood emblems also. Pics coming!
Here is the 52 parts hat I started with .

I read everyone else's posts and changed he measurements a little because I want my truck on the ground but with no air ride... So here are some of the mounts I made

Some weld action :)

In having a local upholster do my seat, door panels and headliner kind of similar to this

https://s3.postimg.org/o2wlh1lur/image.jpg

These are the wheels I have 20x9 Stern Beast wheels. I wanted a somewhat modern resto mod type look

https://s3.postimg.org/f9aadoo9v/image.jpg

These are the headlights which I think will be awesome against the matte white

Intake cover, it rid of the vortec

Dash primed after I filled some holes and built a small cubby hole

https://s3.postimg.org/ub3o3rsxv/image.jpg

Had to check one of the gauges out !

https://s3.postimg.org/c70nj4v9f/image.jpg

After I had it mostly mocked up

https://s4.postimg.org/d0ebpjrh9/image.jpg

I did 3" drop lower control arms and 3" blocks in the black

Most of he body work done, I hand made the front part of the floors and trans tunnel as well as shaved the hole for the fuel fill

That's all for now.. Should have my interior back in a week or so and I'll use it painted and hopefully done in a month, maybe a little longer.

Looks like a good start to a great build..love the new hood emblems..what's your ride height? That looks mighty low..that wouldn't work where I live..haha

Re: 1952 Chevrolet 3100 on s10 frame with LSX- build thread
 
Thanks ! I'm going to stain the wood black also.. And do gloss black steel
strips in between the wood. I've never seen a matte white with gloss black trim 47-53... Ever. So I hope it turns out like I'm hoping :)

At the front of the running boards it's right around 5 inches off the ground. I think it looks lower in the picture than in person.

Sorry bout that..everytime I post and hit my back button it will double post my original..it didn't use to do that but here lately every time I post I have to go back to the home page or it will double up...so if I catch it in time I just hit edit and put dots in it cause I can't erase it..

Looking good man. I'm interested to see how your firewall came out with your custom bead rolled panels.

Looks really good! I'm at 5.5" under the front of my running boards and 3700 miles into it the closest it's come to hitting anything was pulling on to the 4 post hoist for the alignment.

That's awesome ! I like them low. The last truck I built I did air ride, and it was cool but I didn't think it rode the way I thought it should. I did a manual valve setup on it. If I did it again I would do electric valves and height sensors so it stays at ride height no matter what when you set it. I drive quite a bit. I live a hour away from friends and family so the stuff I build has to be reliable. I did the LSX because I wanted the power, reliability and gas mileage .:metal:

did you use the original running board brackets on the s10 chassis?

Yes but I ended up sectioning a chunk out of the middle and welding them back together.

This is what I did instead of the vortec cover. The air intake can be flipped around. I ran mine through the cab to the worthless vent on the passenger side. I even found a way to save the horn button! The top is just pvc, fiberglass and muffler tips. Beautiful build! I can't wait for more pics!

Killin' it. My favorite part is how little you spent to get the project going. Great work. dug

Thanks ! Kind of a cool story.. my friend's dad owned the truck for a alot of years and it sat in the back at their farm. My friend took the truck home and was going to build it, but changed his mind so it sat for 6-7 years and they decided to sell it. My wife and I love those trucks so I thought I would buy it and leave the paint how it was and get it running and driving, but the more I looked at it I thought the LS swap would be a fun thing to do. I already had the motor and trans. Now its kind of snowballed into painting the whole truck, nice interior.. nice gauges.. etc etc etc. I think its well worth it though.

Sprayed raptor on some of the underwood stuff and set the cab back on the frame
