Re: '91 OBS Clean-up

Wow, lookin good! I love the original color combo... she is coming along though. Nice job on the air management clean up. I hate when people just shove it all under the bad half ass... especially when its something that is vital to reliability and drivability. This thing is gonna be sick!

Re: '91 OBS Clean-up

Started the wiring on it, the previous owner/builder had a cluster-F and rats nest of wiring so we are using the American Autowire to rewire the whole truck and using a BP Automotive standalone harness for the drivetrain.

Re: '91 OBS Clean-up

At this point it seems like you should have just bought a cheap truck since you've rebuilt pretty much the whole thing! Looking great so far.

Yeah, looking back I agree. At the time i trusted it was a solid truck since I bough it from a "Reputable builder" here in Texas. Hindsight is 20/20.

Re: '91 OBS Clean-up

I have had that happen to me before as well.... remember the advice: "if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself". Its tough to find an unhacked OBS these days. I have been looking for 6 months now. Regardless, your truck is dope as hell!

I've seen multiple super clean, low mileage OBS trucks sell recently across IG. It's hard to find a CHEAP unhacked OBS. You're going to have to be lucky or pay for an unmolested version.

Re: '91 OBS Clean-up

Engine bay coming together. Slosh Tubz installed, needed to trim the passenger side a bit for the Sanden A/C Compressor. Now they are Cleaning up the core support and making the new mounts for the new radiator/fan combo.

The transcooler is also installed, waiting on the two relay kits from
BP Automotive to wire up the cooling system.

Thanks for looking. Cheers.
