Wow its been a while since I updated this thread.Haven't been highly motivated to build lately.But once I saw bryan's version of this truck it light a fire under me to get back to the bench.Not a whole lot of progress but all 4 control arms are done.

I've started on the rest of the cab floor.I have half of the driveshaft tunnel done.
Thanx for lookin'
Jeremy

Here is the start of the trans tunnel/ctr console.The console and backwall/stereo enclosure will be smoothed into what looks like one giant enclosure.

Made a small amount of progress in the past couple days.I finished my driveshaft tunnel / center console.
Posted Image
I still need to smooth everything out and build the sub enclosure in front of the rearwall which is my next step.
I removed the vent windows from the front glass area.You can see in the picture a stock glass assembly and the modified one.
Posted Image
I test fitted the dash as well.I need to shim the sides a bit to get it to fit properly.

Started on my door panels tonight.This is just a rough lay out at the moment it will probably change before the build is done.

I found a new set of seats that I am going to use instead of the Nova seats.

The dash is stock.I might take the design off the seats and incorporate that into the door panels.

Sounds like a cool build.I want to get 2 of those kits myself.I don't know how that truck will look with the gullwings though.You will have to post pick once you start it.
