This was my previous project: Project LT10. A 1996 Chevrolet S10 regular cab pickup, it was originally a 2.2liter four cylinder five speed truck. It was replaced with a 350LT1 and a TH350 transmission (with a 3,000 stall and a TCI race kit). Fuel was controlled via a MS2.2Extra setup and spark was delivered via a EDIS8 DIS conversion using GM coils. The suspension was lowered 5″ in the rear and 4″ in the front.

Having an issue with this low spot where I welded the antenna hole shut in the fender. I have tried filling it twice, but each time I block it, the filler is completely removed.

I came across this article, it is written by an automotive technician explaining why your friendly technician and himself are NOT trying to rip you off when they make you aware of a problem or worn item on your vehicle. Having been in the industry for almost 20 years myself, I can personally vouch for everything he states, people will absolutely scream, insult and threaten you when you try to save their lives, or the lives of their children. There have been instances where I have had to call the local police and make them aware of an unsafe vehicles condition as the irate customer left my lot, with their 4 kids in the back and the vehicle having one working brake caliper and nothing else.
