I am liking the 3 window cab Nick, did you have to re-do it after the yellow paint was shot? Looks like some final bodywork is needed where you filled in the windows.

The rally wheels and small block power should make this a nice little truck!

Actually I got the truck as a built up and used it as paint practice a while back, but yes it needs a bit of final work yet.

That'll look GOOD as a 3-window cab Nick!

Do you know where the Rallys with open lug detail came from?

Jeff there from the AMT '74 Corvette, I assume they were in some of the MPC Vette annuals also.

Cool Nick, I will be watching this one. Your skills have come a long way and I am sure you will do this one justice! You gonna keep it yellow or change the color?

NIce work so far!
I have the same kit in my stash and I am giving it the same treatment. Ratted shop truck. I even filled in the rear side windows to.
It's on the way back burner on my list though.
I will be watching your build.
