Nick man, for a '93 that's a great looking clean truck! Looks like it was a one owner and garage kept. I look forward to seeing your build for it.

Thanks guys, actually Bill I'm owner #4, though the man who I bought it from had it from '95 on, but it has never been garaged, it's always been a winter driver, just has been very well maintained by all the previous owners and I plan to keep that tradition going.

I had a new 95 GMC What a great truck they had with that body style. We put almost 300,000 miles on it most of the time pulling a race car trailer. It never had a real problem. I will be following this build.

Looks like you're off to a good start, Nick. Great job lettering those tires. One good part about building a replica of your 1:1 is you just have to walk outside for references. I'll be watching.

Yeah they are good trucks. I actually like the look of the airbag wheel, at least the one up to '02. Only thing that sucks is it's harder to add an aftermarket wheel. :P

Build is looking good so far Nick, I always love replica builds since it can be interesting to see how people make parts that aren't found in kit form already.

Thanks Hugh and Jordan.

Hugh, your very right, and with me replacing all kinds of parts on the 1:1 I also have seen things most wouldn't,

Jordan, I'm lucky, not to many things I have to scratchbuild on this one. only things I can think of are Headrests, tonneau cover, Exhaust, A/C system, Portion of the Air Cleaner and a few mix detail items.
