I didn't  clean it very well. Back in the day I thought I was really doin somthing. Boyd's paint,don't

 know what clear. working arm rests, and that killer costom bed cover! Of corse it's Pro/street!

Molded the rear roll pan-W/WOOD PUTTY!

And decals from a Revell VW. This was the first one I "rubbed out" W/Novus.-Still a lot of peel.

Don't mind the wax in the lines-It has a splatter painted base too! OHH,AHH 

First model I entered a show with. I think I got third place. I was hooked! Like totally man!

Dunno about everyone else, but that's my favorite time period for custom cars and trucks. I love the monochrome look, the bright colors, and the billet/body color wheels. Yours is a great example of that time period!

I think it looks great. Plus it's a piece of your personal modeling history that should always have a place of honor on your shelf!

Yep, back in the '90's you could get model cars and trucks for $5 a kit...THAT's what I miss...Great job on this one....It's still a pretty good build....

Nice looking dually Eric! I love the color and graphics on it! Boyd's Pacific Blue was my favorite color from that line of paint and I have a couple of models painted with it.

Great build, and thank you for that great topic title! Reminds me of an old issue of Car Modeler with the Eddie Van Halen-themed pickup.  Bleh.
