The Day i brought it home
Not bad for a stock 4cyl auto
The last of its days offroad.
New wheels...JUNK, will never buy another set of Keystones. After the 3rd time of losing a tire down the road, i scrapped them.
New rims and paint. Also a 3inch rear shackle lift for the hot rod look
I have a bunch of pics somewhere around here of the paint process. will post them as soon as i can find them

That S-10 does Look Great in that Black / Dark Brown Colour Scheme.
Thanks a lot. I've got alot of money, blood, sweat, and tears into this thing with lots more to come. To be honest that brownish color is actually firemist metallic orange. When we painted it we did it over the black with only a few light coats which gave it a much darker color but shines bright in the sunlight. I painted my old Jeep Cherokee the same color. Ill post a pic of that to show what it was supposed to look like. Do they have S10's over where you are? or are they the Isuzu version?
The Orange the s10 is supposed to be like. I do really like the brownish look though.

The S10's are great little trucks and yours looks really nice. The 2.2 heads love to crack so watch for that next time you have it apart. I've lost count how many of those I've worked on over the years. There is LOTS of good info over at the S10 forum too.
I've read the same about the heads. I'll be sure to check next time its apart. I planned on having it cleaned and decked so if I don't see it I'm sure they will. This is my 3rd s10 and I love them. By far the most reliable vehicles I've ever owned. Its my only 2.2 I've had though. Only 120xxx on it too! Thanks for the heads up.

... Do they have S10's over where you are? or are they the Isuzu version? ...
Yes, here you will see many Chevrolet S-10 but very few Isuzu "Hombre" (which means "Man" in Spanish), seems like the Isuzu versions came from USA, because only the Chevrolet Dealer sold 'em here.
Also, you'll see many of its American Counterpart, the Ford Ranger, but if you sum all the S-10's and Rangers, you'll not reach the Half of Toyota Hi-Lux Diesel sold here... or Isuzu D-Max, Nissan Navara, etc... Diesels are best sellers in our Market because people here prefers diesel for pick up trucks, also the Double Cab configuration has been the car model best sold here for many decades.
So Chevrolet Sold here the Double Cab Turbo Diesel S-10...
...to Compete with the Diesel Double Cab Pick up Trucks from other Brands,
also Ford Sold the Brasilian-made Turbo Diesel "Power Stroke" Double Cab Ranger...
...which is Not the same Gasoline Ranger Sports Track...
...but Both Diesels where a Huge Fail in our Market, specially the Ford's one,
so You'll see them still running but with Nissan Diesel engines.
Despite the Bad impression those diesels has made on Latin America, The Gasoline 2.2L Chevrolet S-10 is known here as a very Good Car, but never came in automatic for our market. The Gasoline Ranger is known as a very good car here too.

I'm sorry to hear that. Some people sure don't have any respect for other peoples property. I am sure it will turn out when you are done with it though. Looking forward to updated pics!
I was beyond mad about it. This truck is my baby. I cant stand people that dont have any respect like that. Thanks man. Ive slowly been doing some interior work, ill get some pics of that.
