I can`t think of a better way to get back on the bench after a looooong hiatus from building than to build my holiest of Grails. The Scottys Muffler shop version of Monograms 55 Ford pickup, which I believe is also the original issue of this body. Circa 1977.
I`m allready a ways in, with the body in primer and the frame and driveline done but it`s still got a few steps to go. A couple minor mods to accent the build have been done but other than that it will be a box stock build done to the best of my abilities. It`s been over a year since I worked on anything and 9 months since I have been able to get my head in gear to be able to build, so to start with this one feels immeasurably good.
