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.

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)
