I have the truck in the low rider community build if you guys want to check it out. I had started it of in the big rig trucks section but thought it worked with the community build.

Here is the first part, now here is what I came up with. This is my first try at scratch building a four link, or anything for that matter. It might not be completely accurate but its what I came up with and I am happy. I still need to sand it and use some filler in spots and paint it. I also need to start working on the front all of this is for my Dodge L700 that I am doing. I also need to see if I can straighten out the back end a little bit more.

It may be your first shot at scratch building but I think you've figured it out. I'm impressed.

Good work so far. This is just my opinion but I'm not a fan of those rims. But it's your build so roll how ever you want. Great job though

Are you kidding me ? I just stumbled on the thread and can't believe I have a simular project in mind . I have ordered and recieved the fat wheels an tires I want to use and the kit is on order and coming from Phil's Hobby Shop. My plans are ( subject to change ) is to lower the heck out of it and remove the top and chop the windshield. It looks good in my mind but who knows ? I will know more as I see progress on yours.

This is your brain on modeling:

   Has anyone put the red wagon body on the L 700?
