Is an unfinished, salvaged from Dad's attic '55 F100 acceptable?

Well, work has officially begun on the '79 Toyota. I'm going for a bagged and bodydropped mini.
Here's what I started out with, a three dollar built up from Dean's Hobby Stop. It's a snap kit, so I guess I can't call it a 'glue bomb'. :lol:

A soak in Purple Power removed the decals, and I misted on a few coats of primer so I could spot and remove any mold lines. The molded-in engine and bed floor were cut out. This will be done as a curbside, so I glued the hood shut. The tonneau is just a piece of .030" Plastruct stock. Fun's just getting started!
