    I was highly motivated.

    So I picked up these gems late yesterday.



    Factory ZQ8's. Got them off a guy I met at the junkyard. The sound of my truck caught his attention and we started talking. These are the S10 equivalent of the Grand Prix's "Pre Gens." They're in great shape. One has a fair bit of corrosion on the inside lips, but that's the worst of it. Only got three, but I felt the price was good enough to jump on. Searching for number four. Worse case scenario I could get a repro from RockAuto but I'd rather find a used one to match the condition of the trio. You guys keep a look out for me?

    That ebay add also lists other trucks/codes that this wheel came from. I'm sure you already know this but maybe it'll help the search.

    Buddy here at work had those wheels on his S-10 when he traded it in for his new Canyon. I'll keep an eye out for some.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate the extra eyes!

    Each build is unique, but typically significantly less.

    Well the AC works. Mostly, I guess. It blows cold. Not like freeze your fingers cold, but cold. Maybe because it was just idling in the driveway, and it's like 95 out. Filled it with 152a just to make sure the compressor would kick on and to check for any potential leaks. I may go back and fill it with 134a or I may not.





    Also pretty sure either my battery or alternator took a dump. When I went to restart the truck after all the dorking around with the AC, it just clicked. Threw it on the charger for a couple minutes, and it begrudgingly started. Couple trips around the block and the volt gauge held steady at around 10. Ordered a 145 amp for a Escalade. Should have it by Friday. Even if I do have to replace the battery, I won't feel too bad. It's over two years old, and out here, we usually only get three out of them anyway.

    New alternator is in. I can confirm; longer belt is needed. I put the original one (from before the power steering pulley swap) on for now. That will serve as a band aid, but that's a little too long. 2329mm should be just right.

    7mm on the diameter and 30 amps more output. Easiest upgrade ever.

    Got a rear sway bar. Not really high on the priority list, so it might be a while before it goes on, but for the price I couldn't pass it up.

    Looks well worth it to vaporize rubber.
