Started on this truck over the past few weeks. I have just piddled with it but finally decided to get something done tonight. I started making my own frame for the back and it still likes a lot of work. My only issue is the tires are hitting the top of the inside of the fenders on the bed. I really dont want to do it but I might shave the top of the wheel off since you wont see it. I thought about raising my fenders but there isnt much room to do so. Not enough anyways to get the bed low enough. I am debating between a weathered and rusted tan/white combo or a turquoise shade.

Haha your truck is the reason I'm building this one. I don't know if I could pull off a paint job as nice as yours so that's why I'm going with the weathered look. I didn't know these wheels existed til I seen you use them. They are similar to the real wheels called mobsteels or the centerline smoothies and I really like those.

It is a lot of work to get that Chevy low. I have trimmed wheels to do so in the past. After all it is a model!

Looks good so far...

Wasn't too much work, I reworked the a arms in the front. If I could do it again I would probably keep the original frame and just rig something up to get my height in the back. Making my own frame was frustrating.

well mine was already partially build (gluid) when i got the kit of a friend so i kept the wheel wells where the hood rests on..

its real easy i think to open them up and let the wheels stick true higher like you have in the forst pics the hood will fall over them ...

 

and weathered will lok really cool i think !!

Im at the stage where everything needs to be painted so I a going to try to start getting stuff in paint in the next day or so. I did shave the top of the back tires so the bed sits a little lower.

After about 2 weeks the paint was finally ready for me to start sanding on it. Im debating on doing some scallops like the ford below. Let me know what you guys think. Of course if I did the scallops mine would be different to fit the truck since the body is completely different.

Cool looking truck Justin! I'm working on a '60 Ford pickup currently and ran into the same issue with clearance. Those wheels and tires from the Black Force kit are pretty large. I switched mine out for a set of the smoothie wheels from the Revell '57 Chevy. I actually like them better than the Black Force wheels once I got them painted up. If you would like, I can post a photo of it so you can see what they look like.

This build is looking great and I love the pic of the truck you posted with the scallops. I have to agree with Richard on making the scallops weathered. I think that would look killer. Nice job so far.
