Darren, those pumps look sweet! I can't wait to see this in paint
James, hopefully by the end of this week or beginning of next ill be getting some color on it. I have reached the point that i want to get this one finished, I was hoping to have it ready for our fair in sept, we have a pretty good turn out and a few of my past builds got best of show. Was hoping this was the best of show for 2013, but have until the 6th of september to get it finished..... may not make that date however.

pretty much the final layout for the beds, really itching to get this one done, i have reached the point of being tired of it and want to get on to the egytian raider build.
and the detail pops out after a coat of primer on the interior foam...
the grey is not the finished color on the stone work, im shooting to get a tan color out of the stonework kind of the shade the pyramid is colored in the bed of the pickup...

Did a quick mock up after finalizing the hinges and getting the foam cut out to accept the hinges...

Working on finalizing the dashboard and decided to do a little relief in the foam, tried to take a pic to show you the depth, sorry my phones camera is not the greatest...
it will show up better when its painted...which i am getting closer to the day this thing starts seeing paint yeaaaaa!!!

A quick mock up with the real chain steering wheel and kinda give an idea where im heading, the biggest challenge for this build is making the stone look natural and not like concrete.

Playing around with the placement of the aztec warrior one of about four that I want to add to this build.
I changed my mind on the final look of the running boards, instead of the charm pieces I was going to add, I'm thinking about having the look a like logs for the running boards...

Darren, you've got one helluv an imagination with these theme builds, and you do an awesome job on them all..

Thank you Rich! what keeps me going is everyone watching from beginning to end, otherwise I would probably shelve them for years before finishing them. I'm dieing to finish my strippers delight and the Egyptian raider but want to get this one done as well............

The peddles for brake and gas...
Made a couple of filler panels to close the gap on the back of the beds...
added some Vigas which may not be from the Aztec/Mayan days but I had this idea and thought I would try it out.
The fish tank still fits, I actually forgot about this when i put in the Vigas but it fits.
a mock up with the drivers door installed and the door panel mock up...

Starting to do some more carving to the foam on the beds.
This will take a while to get it all complete and hoping to not have a mishap....

Jonas thanks for the props, that grill is cool and im gonna put that one in my file for the tiki build that I have had in mind for the past few months, that grill would be perfect for that build. I have the grill done for this one thou, took me eight hours to get it to fit and carved out.
When I get this one done Ill start the tiki theme build and work on that one as i finish the Egyptian Raider build.

Lower99, this is actually what inspired me for the idea of a tiki type build, this pic right here. But that will be after i finish the Aztec warrior.
But after seeing your pic It came to mind that I could put bamboo over the tikis or use the bamboo grill for a background of the tikis.....
