Nick, I have really come to enjoy following your builds.
I am sssooo glad you stuck it out here on the forum. Your skills have developed exponentially from the first time you posted here.
These are my favorite "late model" Chevy pickups!! Can't wait to see it finished!!!

Great progress! I like the 1:1 car too. This is something, I've been planning for my 1st car when it's time to get one. These are not so expensive here in Finland, and of course cars need to be American. :lol:


Good job all over on this build, can't wait to see more.

Thanks everyone, between all the nice comments here and all the comments I get about the 1:1 I don't know how to respond sometimes, anyway, got the color GM Brite/Bright Teal (#38), and got the body panels ready for color.

There's nothing more fun than building a 1:1 you own ... in my book anyway. You're doing justice to all those little things that are different from the kit ... looking great!

Thanks Mike, yes it's Fun, building what I drive everyday, but it has it's down sides, because I drive it everyday and have done almost everything It has needed myself, it leaves me knowing to much about the truck and wanting to add EVERY detail.

anyway.
Made the Tonneau (thanks W/T for your help)

Also Tinted the glass to match my rig, added the sun shade on the front and did the rear window, that is real LLumar Window tint that I got from the guys next door to my work FX Tint.

Status, 1:1 runs great and got a full tank of premium gas the other day (gas station ran out of regular and were selling premium for the price of regular). As far as scale, been working out how to do the exhuast in scale, 1:1 has one off custom System. and well then there's my 1:1 toy ('69 Fury III Convertible), and working 10 1/2 hour days doesn't help either.

Finally got my 1:1 project to the point where I'm not having to put as many hours into it, and I'm not as busy with work so I've been working on clearing out old projects.

 

Started working on getting this one finished.

 

First job was to give my motor a coat of Duplicolor Engine enamel, Black of Course. Then I got looking at the transmission, NOPE WRONG FOR MY TRUCK, the transmission included is of course the SM465 4spd Manual (dropped in '92), my truck is a '93 and has the 4L60E 4spd Automatic (First year available on 1/2 tons), so I went parts box scrounging and came up with as close as I could find. Gave it a Shot of King Industrial Core Rebuilders Cast Aluminum paint. Still need to add the dipstick tube and dipstick, haven't decided if I'm going to do the lines yet.

Also painted the bumpers and mirrors with the same paint I used on my 1:1 to clean up everything, Duplicolors Acrylic Lacquer, which didn't overly impress me.

Also Polished out the paint and did the trim.

Transmission in the kit is actually the New Venture 5LM60 5-speed.

 

Trans you added is the TH350, if you have any of the SS454 kits you could have used the trans out of that (4L80E, but close enough)
