Dave, they are on eBay for $ 65 and yes it comes with the interior. The only thing is that it comes with 4 head lights instead of the 2 that were on them.

Thanks Dan I had better start saving :D

Very nice build, Dan.

 

 

Just one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb, though.  You should do something to eliminate those nasty mold separation lines on the fronts of the air horns; either drill out the fronts and taper them like horn bells, or attach flat discs to replicate covers.  Just a suggestion, as the mold lines make the air horns look toyish and detract from the otherwise excellent appearance of your truck.

Really nice to see an out of the norm rig ! These old Bighorns although few built were really nice rigs from an appearance

standpoint !! Your build really captures this one nicely. How did you find the Frontier resin casting ?? I have read many different

comments on their quality. I know Ron Andrews at RMR also does a Bighorn and I do like Ron's quality and pricing !!

Rick other than having to change out the head lights the kit was good and fit well with the KW frame.

Harry the Dodge reference pictures I used had a white engine. It's a semi gloss white that I used.

Just thought I would have another look at your lovely big horn and I notice that there is a slite problem with your front rims it looks like the outer ring didnt stick on !?

Thanks for the updated comments.

Dave one of the rim spacers came loose and I seem to always find these little things after I get the pictures posted. I've fixed it since then. Thanks for the info.
