I've been working on this project for a year or two now it started life as a gmc syclone but has turned into this crazy project... Body dropped, chopped top and I laid the A pillar back to keep a nice shape to the side windows, custom phantom grille, scratch built front bumper, shaved everything, door handles windshield whipers, gas door, tail lights, tailgate.. I added a sunroof, custom cut the hood and molded the rest of the hood into the body.. As for the chassis, it's sorta stock besides the back half which is custom tubed with a scratch build independent rear axle.. I just got back into this project after a few month brake from model building.. I hope to have it done in the next few months...

That looks great! I will definitely have to follow this build. I have a 1/20th S-10 that I've customized, and this will give me inspiration to finish it! Keep going, You're doing awesome!!!

Nice work.  That, and the S-10 sister kits, is a fun kit to build/modify.

 

Here's my take, not to hijack your thread or anything.  syclone4.png

Not much for updates.. I got the body wet sanded and another coat of primer on it I hope to have it painted this weekend. As for any other updates, I'm building door panels or door cards depending what side of the world your reading this from I hope to start working more on the interior this weekend sometime between coats of paint..

You should try to make a bed floor out of clear plastic. That would be a cool idea I think!

I've thought about that if I decide to do that I can always use the piece I've made as a templet.. I'm trying to find a tailgate with the embossed Chevrolet or gmc in it so I can mold it into this kit some where..

Started building the scratch built firewall with tubs for the front tires, I have a little more work to do to that.. Also started on the upper and lower control arm, since this kit didn't come with them. I think it might of been 4 wheel drive?

Thanks everyone. I have a busy few days coming up so I don't know how much I'll get to work on the truck but it's coming along great! Hopefully I'll have paint on it sooner then later

Got alittle more done on this never ending project haha... Thanks to pharoah for hooking me up with a chevy tailgate that I molded into the rear of the truck. I hope to have the front suspension done today and maybe be alittle closer to paint.

What primer did you use? Tailgate looks great...
