This is my 1st truck project on the forum. It has to be one of my fav trucks of all time. The AMT Round2 re-release of the Firestone Ford F350 pickup. Will be taking this one over the top. So far Ive only been looking and ordering parts for this, the only work Ive done so far, is modify the bed so the wheel well opening is in the normal wheelbase position. I used a step by step process I found in the review section for this kit. Only the sectioning has been done so far, I have a lot of sanding, filling, sanding, priming, and sanding I have ahead of me but the look of the normal wheelbase is well worth it over the super camper special extended wheelbase look. This is where I am at.
To give an idea of the direction of the project- 1st is I will be ordering a 74-77 style (hints the title) front grill assembly from Bandit resins, it will be 4x4, lifted, using 44" boggers, wheels, dana 60 front, dana 70 rear, springs, transfer case and possibly other parts from BNL resins. The power plant will be a twin turbo Cummins 12 valve and intercooler from Trailer Trash Kustoms. Im thinking of trying to scratch build a NV5600 6 speed trans for this as well. Will be a very ambitious project, but will be fun and totally different than what I have been doing, so it should keep me pretty interested.
