Just started on this one,daily driver type truck :lol:

So far all i've done is, stretched an old blazer chassis & a bit of mock up.
The axles are a bit wide (1/24),but i can live with it :lol:

Personally I would have re-arched the springs and attached taller shackles to give it a bit more lift. Looks kinda tame sitting at stock height! :lol:

As far as color, I think a nice bright red would look great on it. Of course you would have to make sure to have a white base coat for it to really pop.

Hi Joe!... If you use the topper on it I think it could use some windows in it for more realistic look...it may work better for it? Looks good so far! Keep at it... :lol:

I wouldn't use the topper, I think they look dumb on pick ups.

You can also buy 1:1 toppers with no windows, so ya

From me. :) They come in the OOP AMT Snapfast C1500 Ext. Cab. It's not shown on the box, but it comes with it.

Id say paint it the pewter color. Like the champaign gold you see the newer 2500Hd's running around with. Too bad nobody made the newer 8 lug GMC wheel that comes stock on the newer 3/4 tons.
