Looking good Walt. Depending on how far weathered you are planning, I could take some pics of my grandpa's '86 Chevy.

Only suggestion I have right now Walt is fill in the cab corners at the bottom with a piece of styrene.

Walt,

 

I have a couple of those under construction and they build up nice. Those blocks you added and have circled on the instructions are for the lifted version of that truck. If you omit those blocks, you will have a stock height truck but if you are using the kit tires, those blocks are necessary.

 

Keep posting, maybe I will get motivated to finish mine!
