I started building the interior for my Pickup. Since the cab, and bed will be Gloss Black, I wanted to pick up a color what matches well with that. Well I've always liked the combination of Red & Black, so interior will be basically red. Even though I added some grey there too. That combination was tested on my Austin Mini build while ago, and it looked very good. Now I'm using the same color scheme on this interior.

Eye candy is good. Feel free to share. I'm hoping a thread like this keeps folks motivated to build more.

Thats awesome, it reminds me of "los vegas". But I think I like the monti better. Are you planing on yellow? or is that a primer?

Thanks guys.. im using a yellow primer and then going to add a yellow base with maybe orange fades and a few handpainted murals..... Not certain yet, but the paint and bodywork is where i often struggle , so im taking my time and trying things out and hopefully it will look pretty cool......... Thanks....... Lowlife !!

Here we go again. I did some test fitting for my Stepside. It fits in correct ride height in the front when using the Custom axle from the kit, but I had to saw little material off from the back to get it sit right. The rear end can't be lower without frame modifications, and I don't want to do them for this. So it's going to be on this ride height when finished. Now needs to show some paint for the chassis parts.

More pictures of the Stepside. I started assembling the body parts together, to get it painted. Anyways now there is some need for putty, because parts didn't fit as well as they should have:

However, the chassis is on four wheels now. Parts fit very nicely and stance is pretty good. Front end could be bit lower, but rear end can't, otherwise rear axle would hit to the frame, and I don't do modifications to the bed, because I want to keep the body as it came from the factory.

Alright if I join? I've got a '96 Impala SS coming and a set of wire wheels on hand and was planning on making a lowrider with it.

Cool! Once I get the kit I'll get started. I've already picked out the green I'm going to use, and the wheels are going to be a set of 17" Fujimi gold wire wheels that I just received.

Well, been awhile since I touched a model, been spending the summer playing with the 1:1 95 caprice

Posted Image

I had to sell the 74 caprice to pay a bill but I still have the 79 glasshouse caddy in the works. I sprayed some
dupli-color metalspeks silver and then a top coat of Killer Cans lime green. Gonna shoot the vinyl top probably
in a darker green with matching interior, maybe with some white accents thrown in.

In wanting an oldschool feel I used the stock wire wheels with pegasus rings and 520s and the center cap from
a 59 impala for an old cross lace true ray look.

trying to make up my mind on stance, probably will go fully slammed. Also change the chrome rings to ones from the 70 impala kit.
