I think the roll bars are way too bright and shiny . . . I'll tone them down soon . . .

I like the exhaust tips looking like fangs . . . I tried to bend up but it was too much work. LOL!

Thanks, Bryan . . . yeah, that's the idea, although most of what I've seen down here are these huge big daddy trucks people take muddin'. I'd love to show up in one of these. LOL.

Hey doc - didn't I read way farther back that this was going to be a SHINY :) :) :) build? What's with the dirt and rust? And, I thought that AK stuff was a brush on deal? I was going to order some for chassis weathering but the guy wants a ton of $$$ for shipping.

Jim, the body is going to be shiny, with a bit of mud spattered on the rocker panels. It's a build where I want to showcase the different finishes, etc . . . but yes, it's shiny.

The AK-INTERACTIVE RUST SET is a dual purpose set. You can brush it on or airbrush it on. I think the best results are gotten via the airbrush.

You can get stuff directly from AK-INTERACTIVE-USA.com and this way the cost of shipping is not as much as if you order from EUROPE.

Tell Iain Hamilton Doctor Cranky sent you.

This is looking awesome DrV. The one thing that comes back to me after studying your progress are the exhaust headers. They'd be thrashed and completed mud covered when done running in the bog. Anyway to run those out the hood? Otherwise its perfect. Looking forward to shiny.

Brad, yes, I still have to come in with the airbrush and stipple and spatter the mud all over. I decided not to mess around with the exhaust too much.

I keep thinking of "Grave Digger", now that you mention the green paint I'm thinking about it even more. I can't wait to see the painted body!
