Yeah, so stupid to have 100hp that gets 50 mpg, when you can have a 500hp motor that gets 10...

Yeah, talk about facepalm...

Not even close if you factor in what this young man will learn fixing "His" truck.

That fixes the issue I had with the project.

Personally I look for solid body since I do mechanic work not paint.

One more vote for the red blazer. Re-do that one! LMC will have everything for that one.

THis is awesome. I already have plans for my son's first car. He is only 2.5 though, and by the time he is ready to drive. All the cars I have been looking at will be too out of date.

Now is the perfect time to paint it. Pop all the fixed glass out, strip out the remaining boots, grommets, and brackets, clean up all the pinch welds, de-ding it, then sand, prime, and paint. No masking required, and no tape edges in the paint or clearcoat.

Looks like a perfect opportunity to add some sound deadening. I had an S-10 when I lived in Texas. Heat and road noise were an issue. Head to Lowes and buy a couple of rolls of Peel and Seal. It's a roof flashing material. Works exactly like Dynomat but it's $14.99 a roll instead of $25 a sq. ft. For $30 you could line most of that cab.
