Hate to nice Chevy's in the bushes :( make's me cry :(

Well, that truck didn't have a frame left when parked about 10 years ago. Had it been fixable it would have been my older brother's first vehicle.

Yeah, I actually built a set, but thanks for the offer though.

I may end up missing the deadline, I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled today and the bodywork (cab's back wall and visor mainly) is not cooperating. My dad will be off work until next Tuesday, so he can help me. I also go back to school next Wednesday, which bites, but Pap's birthday is Saturday so with any luck I'll be able to get it finished by then. Also, any suggestions on a stocker looking  steering wheel? The one from Revell's 69 Yenko Camaro looks pretty close.

Sometimes, "close" is the best you can do.

 

And as long as you do the best you can do, nobody will fault you.

'Ol Blue received both the blue and the clear today.Chassis, interior, and all accessories are finished. I would post some pictures, but my primary computer is down for a while. The one i'm typing this from is about as fast as molasses going uphill when uploading pics to Photobucket.
