Default 95 S10 Blazer build

This is my second blazer build. . The first one didn't work out so great. I did a lot of work on it and really enjoyed driving it, but upon inspection from the frame shop it was found to have a busted frame..so bad that they recommended not to fix it. So I didn't want anyone else to have it in that condition I took everything I could off it and scraped it..I recently found another 95 2 door flor sale so I bought I it, but it haks some issues also. I put those issues in the tech section so I won't go into them here. Anyway the main thinga I want to do is mainly cosematic..roof rack, front bumper guard, paint, wheels and tires. As soon as I upload pics to my tablet I will post them.

Before I post pics I want to give a history of this blazer. It hasn't ran since 2009. The guy I bought it from said he got it from a couple that used it on a paper route and they said it overheated and it hasn't ran right since. I did a compression check on the cylinders and the compression was good on all cylinders. My thought on the overheating issue is one of a few things..lean condition on injectors, O2 sensor. I plans are to change the intake manifold gasket(might as well I'm changing the injectors), change the O2 sensor, and exhaust gaskets. The truck runs but is sluggish and smokes and smells of gasoline. Hopefully this fixes the driveability issues. Pics to come very soon.

I've already had them off to check. Really solid under them which I'm surprised that there wasn't any rust under them

good idea on the running boards i personally dont like them there are the standard nerf bars for the 2 door s10 but i found some off a s10 pickup extended cab (with the third door ) and put them on mine had to make brackets for the back but they fit great i have a pic of them in my photos on here ill get some more this weekend and post them in there of how we mounted them if your interested if not go with the ones made for the 2 door ... :P your choice
