A worn-out truck with a worn-out suspension and steering is going to chew up its front tires in pretty short order, so I attacked the tires with files and sandpaper.
The first signs of grime on the front rollers, brought to you courtesy of Testors Dullocote and a wash of thinned Tamiya flat black.
Rear wheels/tires were dealt with in a similar manner, but I decided I wanted at least four good tires on the back... ended up with six, so mission accomplished there!
I'll probably start on the interior next- it'll be dirty, grungy, and cluttered, and more than likely just plain trashed in a few areas. The idea here is to just have fun and build something that looks the way a 2012 Lonestar might look around, oh, 2032 or so, after it's been through a series of cheapskate owners and a couple million miles of (hard) service.
