Ok guys first I will introduce myself. I am new to these forums, but have been modeling for about 7 months. Right now I have a chevy silverado on the bench. As of now, I have the front suspension almost done, the rear is in the works, and I have been working on the bedsides. I am having lots of fun building this truck, I have done lots of research and I am trying to make it like a daily driver/ weekend warrior. Here are some pictures...

Welcome Aboard!

For only having been building for 7 months, you're off to a pretty ambitious start! 8) I wish I could have been that far along at that point.

Those resin mods look pretty cool.......keep us posted!

Thanks for the comments. No I did not use the spray can lid trick. I used the top part of a propel water bottle, then cut styrene to fit the top and used putty to make everything even. it took some time and worked out well. I think I might use that new body and try to fab up some different fenders.

Most prerunner fenders are not flat on the top, so I am going to try to make them a different way this time.
