I managed to get the motor painted:
The valve covers will be body color
Now I'm just waiting on paint to dry!

Glad you like it Caleb!
I painted and detailed the stack:
And finalized the hole in the bed along with "sticker bombing" part of the single-piece rear window that I turned into a three-piece slider with the help of some electrical tape:
The third brake light is 1-1 trailer reflective tape:
Also got the hitch finished up:
And painted the differentials
Then the motor went in!
One more sneak peak:

I managed to get the front end done, I ditched the twin I beam suspension; I used upper control arms from a Revell 99 Silverado:
The steering rack is stock ranger, I cut and bent it "slightly", the lower control arms came from the parts box
It will have a just a little negative camber
Then I assembled the interior, box stock with some paint detailing:
My favorite part is the hand-painted eye ball shift knob
I smoothed out the top of the dash a little bit, the tan is cheapo hardware store enamel
Then I mocked up the interior on the frame and mounted the front wheels
Sneak Peak of the paint!

After I finished the Interior, it was time to work on the frame:
I used semi-gloss truck bed-coat, I had to give Big Red train horns too!
Then I worked on getting the engine, trans, exhaust, and mounts to line up
Hood clearance became an issue......
Nothing a little trimming couldn't fix!
I'm getting somewhere now!
