Incredible build and a nice street car to boot. I own a 70 Z28 SS/RS that I've owned since 79. I'm watching your build glad your taking your time and doing an accurate build.

I avoided this tanker kit like the no other trailer kit I figured it would be plagued with problems from Scratched chrome to sink marks, warped parts of the vessel, heavy sprue attachment joints that be hidden. You made it look fantastic. I'll have to look for one now.. Very nice Thanks for sharing.

The perimeter frame would not be the way to go, no aftermarket company uses that setup. not even in full custom frames. I recommend using a 64-65 chevy truck frame. it's the closest to stock you might find. It has the original 4 coil spring with a rear trailing arm suspension. You can go any route you like after that. Parallel rear 4 bar with air bags is popular with tubular arms and air bags with a rack up front can drop it on the ground. The front inner fenders as mentioned are wrong from and from pre 67. If you want it to lay frame the front fenders wells are modified close to something that is a wheel tub with no inside.

 

You have to make some floor pans, cab mounts and bed mounts this route but nothing you can't handle There is a great book out there for the 1:1 building a C10 truck it's only about $10 ... lots of great ideas. good luck

Excellent work Juergen, One of the few things that have kept me from attempting that build my self was I never found a good picture where I was able to  read the black text to make the decals, even with your model because of the ribs I still could not make it out. PM Sent.
