[email protected]'s 2002 Silverado

Postby [email protected] [OP] » Aug 14 2013, 4:09pm

I figured I should probably just start a build thread now that I could update as I get bit by the Mod Bug instead of starting a new thread every time something new gets done to the truck! The idea I have for this truck is sort of a "budget" build, for now. I do not plan on going crazy with a 7" lift or anything like that, but want to see how far I can get with a $7,000 budget including the $5,000 I paid for the truck; for you math wizards that leaves me with 2K :D. I will be including any DIY projects too which leads me to the first two updates on the truck......

When I purchased the truck 8/10/2013
$5,000

When I purchased the truck the key fob didn't work and the seller said the battery needed replacing. When I came home I pulled the battery out to find that the part that holds the battery in was actually broke. After seeing a $90 price tag for a new one at my local AutoZone I figured I may as well try and fix it....and that's exactly what I did...
Image
Took about 15 minutes and as you can see there are 3 different points that needs solder. Easy fix and kept $90 in my pocket! $0
Image

Next up was the grille, I plan on getting a billet style or speed Grille in the future but like I stated I am trying to see how far I can stretch the dollar. Went down to my local hardware store and picked up my first can of PlastiDip, yep I entered into manhood :lol:
First was prep and as everyone knows this is the most important step.
Image
Then took about 8-10 light coats, about 3/4 of the can $6.00
Image
And Finished product!!
Image
Before and After.....
Image

Should be a fun project and can't wait to see where this project takes me, balance $1,994.00

So I am kinda the same way, I have always had lowered trucks and love the look of a dropped Silverado with 20's especially in Red. However, having so many lowered trucks I think I am ready for one that is a little lifted plus I really needed a truck that I can tow the Jet Skis with onto the beach and sand. So the plan is to do a leveling kit with 33's and just a few other exterior products. Then I'll focus on the interior.
