Looks good to me brother. "the engine in horrible need of detailing!" .............you need to look around at some other peoples pictures before you start bad mouthing your own. There are a ton of S10's out there that would LOVE to have your engines detail.

Hey these trucks can be fun as hell and everybody wants to have a clean nice looking truck but I think sometimes you can sweat the details too much and take some of the fun out of them too. I like your truck and you sure as hell have nothing to be ashamed of.

Looks like you have a good solid base to build on. Engine compartment looks uncluttered and in order, that's a big plus with the V8 conversions. You've got no idea how much wiring and stuff I've had to take out of my engine compartment to clean it up. Looks like a real decent start. Basketball
