Like many of my builds they start as one thing and then change to something else.
First it was this.

The paint and body work look great. But too me it looks ....... too smooth if that makes any sense. You really lost a lot of detail that help break up all that color. The window trim would have been good to leave and the trunk lines as well. This is just my opinion. If you are happy with this look then more power to ya.

I love the tail lights. Do they come with that kit ? I need to find some for a project I have.

Thanks Jantrix for the tip. I tired five time to get the truck cut in but I was never able to get it right so it was deleted.

Thank you to everyone else for the comments. the interior is almost complete and I should be able to post them soon.

Justin, thats a good point. I've no idea how to scribe trunk lines once you've lost them in the bodywork. That might be a worth a post in the "How Do I" section.
