I picked this Chevy 1500 up off ebay the other day. I gave $10 for it which will make a nice shop truck style build. It's just going to be a simple build as I hope to finish it tomorrow night. Tomorrow night will probably be a long night but there is a contest on saturday and I thought why not throw this together. It wasnt a glue bomb but it was on the rough side. The truck will receive new paint and almost all new parts. I was able to get almost everything from a buddy tonight that didnt need the majority of the kit.

Heres the truck as it sits since I got it in the mail today.

Great looking pickup. I like the new rim choice as well, the stance looks good too.

Well the truck isnt done and I'm about to leave. I ran into some problems on the body when painting. I will have some pics tonight when I get back of what I did manage to get done.

I like the wheels too. They just seem to go with it!
