Actually, the two bodies don't fit exceptionally well together, it is just that I did not want to buy another of the AMT pickups and I already had the body for this one so I made it work. :)

I really wanted to do these and may build the black one someday since I love those box Chevy trucks.

Brian, I'm just surprised you didn't ask Stewart where he found the grille for the black truck from! :) :)

I opened this thread not knowin what to expect Fast an Furious trucks ?? I was thinkin trucks built like hondas or something. Man was I wrong but I sure did enjoy lookin this over. A lotta hard work going into a pair of unique looking vehicles. You've been doin some great work on them So Much so I'm thinkin I may need to try one

I am glad you like it. I am not having much time to work on them these days as I just got my first 40 hour a week job working at a lumber yard. I'll see how soon I finish them.

Well, after several months of waiting, Alan said he finally has my wheels done. He is going to send them out in the mail this week. Now I can finish those trucks!!!! :( As soon as they get here, I am going to get on top of finishing the 89 crewcab. Not a whole lot to do on it except put the suspension together, and then the flat bed. Look for more progress soon. ;)

Alan just finished my wheels. Now I will FINALLY be able to complete this build. B) He machined a new set based on the design of the wheels I sent him so the wheels are much better. Hopefully he will be able to finish the casting soon so I can get these trucks completed. Here are the pics of the wheels.

I finally got the wheels from alan. It took a while but it was worth it. The wheels look amazing. I now have to find the time to fit them to the truck and finish it. [:unsure:]

I am completing the rear suspension and then this truck will be basically done. I assembled PE disc brakes and wired them. I am not quite sure but I think the wheels might be a little small??? Now I have the hard part of assembling the rear suspension. I made all the measurements and things, now I just have to hope it all lines up. :lol:

Thanks alan. I am working hard at it and should be able to get a lot done in the next two weeks. Next week is finals week but I only have one hard final and one easy one and the hard one is on Monday. The week after next is spring break so I will be able to get a lot done. Have to go study some more math now LOL.

I have started final assembly of the chassis. I placed the front suspension setup in. It is from a Saleen Speedster. I might have to lower it a little bit though. I am running into some "fit" issues. I have the rear axle, and front suspension in place and the chassis does not sit level. But I found out that the back half of my frame is not level so that is a fairly easy fix. I think I am going to shorten the back half too as it looks slightly long. Also, I need to lower the middle axle as the rear wheels dont touch the ground when it is in place. I am not happy with the fit of the cab either. I need to lower the nose but the air cleaners are too tall. So I will probably shorten the manifold. Here are some pics. I just mocked up the rear deck.
