You might have to cut the letters out of a thin piece of sheet plastic with an exacto and then use that as the face of the bumper. The air filter looks great.

No offense, but you need to find a clean white background to take your pictures. That way we can see your truck better...

Cool, I was wondering how you were going to small them wheel wells up. You have now completely distracted me from my rat rod build and all I want to do is pull out my monster truck projects and join the party. :D

Eric , This is looking really good ! You're putting alot of effort into the detailing and scratch building . Isn't it fun ? ! ! Especially doing stuff you've never tried before ?
This will look awesome when you are finished !
BTW - Your photos look much better now .
