S10 build up for kid with Epilepsy

I asked Liz about this before posting, so I think I am in the clear.

Some club members and I, along with a few friends are going to be doing a charity build of sorts. Not necessarily for a charity, but for what we feel is a good cause. This kid has been hanging around the club for a while now, and since meeting us he won't stop talking about getting a bagged truck. He has Epilepsy and Turrets, as well as a speech impediment. He has been working, and saving money all year, and recently bought a first gen S10.


We are going to pull together and help him build this thing. A lot of us will be donating our time, as well as some parts to the build up. If anyone else would like to donate some parts to help out, let me know. It would be greatly appreciated, by him and all other parties involved. I can put together a list of items that are needed. I am starting out by donating some sleeve bags, and valves. I do not want to accept cash, as I feel it could become complicated.

I also intend to ask Mini Truckin' if they are interested in doing any kind of write up on this. If not, I will probably at least do a tech article on properly installing sleeve bags.

Thanks,
Seth

I hope you get all you're looking for and it's great of you guys to do this! Plus some rep for being a stand up guy.

Re: S10 build up for kid with Epilepsy

I may have a GM newer model paint to match grille at home if you'd be interested in that, been saving it for a good cause and this seems like one. I'll see if it's still there and post a pic if it is.

Re: S10 build up for kid with Epilepsy

Seth, I may have something for you. It's not anything you're looking for, but I'm sure that it will look nice in the truck.

Get back to you soon.

Re: S10 build up for kid with Epilepsy

I updated the first post with some items that have been donated. I am very impressed at how much people are willing to give during these hard times. We have a few tracking numbers so far.

Is it the gray paint color? Or Black? KEG Media offered a rendering, so we where asking him about what the truck would look like tonight at the meeting. He wants it silver with black bumpers/grill.

I was going to make one, but that would be great. Will save me a little time.

That would be great. The Bowtie on his is decent, but the rest is broken.

Let me know what you have in mind. There's no stereo anything in the truck if that's what you are thinking. Brandt from Graphic Disorder is donating an Alpine head unit though.

It looks like we have the cups covered at this point. I will let you know.

Re: S10 build up for kid with Epilepsy

That's a clean start for sure, nice wheel and color combo.

I'll talk to my V8 Blazer friend and see what he's still got laying around.

Re: S10 build up for kid with Epilepsy

Yeah, I'm looking around for an Arc Audio amp foe the project. I don't have any bag parts or anything like that, so I'll stick to what I know.

Cool. I think I will be giving him my low profile 8s to put behind the seat. They are like 150w RMS, 300w max, if you needed to know.

Re: S10 build up for kid with Epilepsy

I should have those ES bumpstops & might have some used 2" dropped spindles. I'll check my storage stash & follow up.

Re: S10 build up for kid with Epilepsy

That would be great, thanks.

Poly Performance said they will donate a set of their red limiting straps.

I think I will run red bushings for the suspension then. He said he wanted the truck to be silver with black bumpers, and red/black suspension parts.

Re: S10 build up for kid with Epilepsy

I'm talking to a guy right now. Looks like he might give me a serious break on some stereo gear. (2 amps, component set, EQ)

Keep your fingers crossed yea?

EDIT: I'm gonna run over to Woodland sometime next week and see if I can't strip what 4ga wire is left in the Escalade carcass I've got sitting my a warehouse. It won't be a whole lot, but it should be enough to make it into the cab comfortably.

I have about 100 feet of 4ga and about half that in TechFlex. No need to worry about that too much.

That looks great. Do you know what is needed to make it fit? It looks like the bottom is shaped different?

It needs dash stuff, and it has a really weird headliner that looks like 70's carpet.

Re: S10 build up for kid with Epilepsy

I'll look tomorrow and see what all is different but I think it's pretty much a direct swap.

I found a picture of one installed, and it looks like you are right. So since we don't have to buy anything different I think we will take it then.
