Thanx I appreciate that.I was going to originally use a set of fenders from P & P resin but the person I'm building the truck for didn't like them.

So I got the hood,cab, and bunk primed and the fenders based.

So here's what I found when I pulled the tape tonight.

I thought I had got the tape to form around the door trim really good but I guess I was wrong.They are easily fixed.

Thanx for lookin'

Sorry my foil work isn't the greatest.

Here's what I'm up to right now.

This is the start of a Herd super road train bumper.I just need to drill the holes for the bars and shape the posts.

Thanx for lookin'

Those rattle can lids look more like the real thing as well.

Good change

I thought this build looked familiar!!!

 

I like the work so far. It's looking good. How the paint clean up go on the lines I haven't been on the other forum in a while to check it out.

 

How's the quality of P&P's stuff? I'm working on another build with my kid. He chose an old school KW cabover for his next conquest, I think some of thier stuff would look good on his build and some of mine as well.

Keep up the work, it's coming along nicely.
