Nobody'd be expecting that old girl to be packing ARDUN heads.

Great looking truck!From what I've seen of the weather at what was supposed to be speed week at Bonneville this year they could have used a real truck like this one with a big rubber squeege on that plow to push some water off of the salt flats.How appropriate,a vintage Ardun equipped flat head Ford cleaning off the racing surface.
I love the overall design concept of this one.This is one to be proud of for sure.

Pretty cool! Grunge up the steering wheel a little and maybe crack a window or two!

I have always liked the snow plow kits but the one criticism I have of them is that they put the attachent points for the plow frame way out in front. They should actually be under the truck. This would pull the plow closer in and make more realistic.
This and the fact that they should have made it so the blade can pivot at an angle so as to look like it's pushing snow to to the side...

You're doing a great job on this build! I have a question....is the seat upholstery wrinkled and if so, how did you do that? Or, is it just an illusion from the paint? (OK....that was 2 questions.....sorry). Love the weathered dog dish hubcaps! This is going to be killer!
Thanks bro... Yes the seat is wrinkled, and that was done using a lighter and heating it up and pushing it in with my fingers...

Wow, that's really convincing. I like that there's still plenty of body paint visible - often there's just too much body rust on this sort of model (IMHO).

I have the engine glued to the chassis and cab is glued to the body...
Next up is running exhaust and tail lights and the body to the chassis...

The truck is done for the most part minus a few detail items as well as griming the underside a bit more , and then it's off to get the plow in some paint...
