I finally found the kits taillights after looking in almost every model box i have.

stripped the chrome from them and then sprayed them and the rear bumper with some cheap chrome spray paint from Ace Hardware.

I was really impressed with how good the chrome look came out.

The fuel cell in the bed is just sitting there. It the large resin  one offered from Scale Dreams.

Not sure if it will  make the build or not.

trying to find some suitable taillights as at this time I hadn't been able to find the kits taillights.

The rear bumber is from the AMT 72 GMC stepside kit. I narrowed it to fit my taste better. then just sanded it a lil smoother and out came the sharpie marker.

Most of the ehaust was hing at this point and the exhaust tips are aluminum tubing

Well maybe today I can continue with posting pics on her progress. Stupid computers at the library and maybe photobucket are not cooperating right now.
