I planning to build a custom top kick pick up using a DG Productions toy and grafting the hood to a Silverado body. Everything I've search on said to use a AMT Silverado dually as a donor kit with the Ford LN for the suspension. My question is I have a couple of the Revell Silverado kits, can those be used as parts donors? I know I'll have to find some dually fenders somewhere, but I like the detail on the Revell kit interiors. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

The Topkicks never used the 99+ GM body that the Revell kit is based off of. You will have some issues getting the interior to fit the cab but I don't know how close the DG parts are to the AMT kit so it could be a fight either way. You could use the newer interior and just try to trade for a bed here to match the body, since it's a custom you have a lot of options.
