This is going to be my scale representation of the truck I would build if I had an unlimited bankroll.

The build process begins.This is the start onf my full kustom frame.To get the 1:1 C10's to lay out you have to "Z" the front frame section which you can see I've done here.

Yeah I'm sticking with these wheels.They are the closest I could find to a Centerline Smoothie.Hopefully my engine and rear diff center section show up soon so I can start dialing in the air ride set up.

Here is a shot of most of the aftermarket parts I'm going to be using on this build.The only parts not pictured are the airbags and rear diff center sections I'm waiting on to arrive.

I look forward to seeing more of the progress on this truck. I drive a bagged body dropped truck daily and just love these builds

Very interesting. Rick over at Scale Dreams must love you for that order. Who did you order the rear end from? I've been looking for a couple but can't find any.

Thanx I appreciate that.I'm not sure I'd say that.The rear centre section is actually from the AMT Rides edition 66 Novathat I sent to a friend and had it cast.I believe he is on here as slammdsonoma.
Got my frame built.

Sprayed a quick test hood to lay out my paint idea.The base is metal-speck silver,the skullz are gel pen and the top is metal cast red.

Here is a shot of the 502.It is sprayed with the same base and top coat as the test hood.

I love slammed trucks! This one is looking great - I can see why this would be your dream truck!

I'm gonna have to keep my eye on this section of the board!
