Well it looks as if my son has lost interest in this truck and now is looking a getting a running, driveable car. So it looks like I will be buying this one from him to put the wheels in motion to get this one going.
We should have my 93 back tomorrow from the shop. I will drive it until I get this transformation done.
Plans are to take my 91 that got crunched back in July and transfer the drive train (motor, transmission, wiring harness-ECM, interior, etc.) into the 87.
We have emissions testing here in the county I live but this one is about to be exempt from that.

So all the blue interior will be for sale soon, auto trans, wiring harness and ECM.
I have 2 Z24i motors, one is complete, the other is almost complete.

The 91 is still being driven as of today. After all has been removed from it, the rest will be up for grabs if anyone needs a new project. It will be a roller when I am done. If it doesnt get bought, then it will get cut up and turned into a homemade trailer using the back half.

Sold the auto trans today.
So the tear down will commence. First thing to go is all the emission crap. That will all be transplanted from the donor truck.



Next goes the fenders. What I thought was an all original truck turned out to have aftermarket front fenders. Which I can tell by the stickers on the inside of the fenders. They are black as well. Factory fenders are a shade of greenish primer or sealer.


Front end after face lift or deletion I should say.




The front of the core support is slightly dented. Also has some rust from a leaking battery. Trying to decide if I want to bother change the core support.

The plan is to find some factory fenders. Probably 4x4 ones. Get all the truck stripped of all the windows, rubber, glass and so on to get it prepped for paint. Also got most of the wiring detached from the engine bay and have it ready to be taken out of the cab. I have a new(used) harness coming that was removed from a 93 truck. This will allow me to put the wiring in when I get it back from paint and still be able to drive the 91 that I wrecked last summer.
This truck has one more year before being exempt for the sniffer emissions testing. After 2011, it will only need a safety inspection here in the Houston area.
I get my tax return this week, so I got my wife talked into letting me use some of it along with what I have saved to get the paint and body done. Sure hope she doesnt back out of that agreement.

David do you already have a bodyshop lined up to paint it? I wanna get a give or take idea of what I would be looking at too.

No, I dont have a body shop lined up. Jason(Red Aggie) here at the site knows a guy who he might be taking his to. When I see his done, then I will decide if its the best place for me to take and have mine done. Its going to be a few months before I am ready to do so.

Yup, I'm hoping to have mine in the shop for paint in the next few weeks. It's so ugly right now...lol. I'll let my guy know I might have 2 more trucks lined up and see if I can get some better pricing for ya'll. It's a big shop with lifetime paint warranty, good work, no bs. I've just worked with them enough over the years we're on a first name basis...

With 3 of us needing paint jobs I think we can or should work out a good deal with 1 of these shops.

I just got home from a swap meet. I made $842 towards paint and body work for this truck. Damn am I stoked.
I am planning about $2000 for a single color. But if I can get more by the time I am ready to paint, I will go 2 tone.
