    Exotics_Builder hooked me up great-Thanks Gerry!

    I could work with the chrome one for sure!

    Thanks Dennis-I should've thought of them-that's where I got the running boards after all!

    Gerry, I'm looking for full width like the one in the picture. Thanks for the info Mike, maybe I'll see if these's a parts truck out there somewhere knowing what to look for.

    "Universal" step bumper needed
    Pretty much like the title says-looking for a square type preferably with diamond plate steps and a drop in the center where the license plate and ball mount would go. I have a standard chrome rear bumper and other parts from Firestone Ford kits to trade. Thanks!

    Definitely a venture into a seldom thought of area anymore-nice job with it.

    Like everything about it. Those wheels kinda have that 'mob steel' look.

    Thanks Gator.  Rails are on so I dry fitted the cab and bed on the frame.

    I haven't made a diorama yet even though it's something I've always wanted to do partially because of space, and also not knowing exactly what i wanted to build or replicate. Have to say I really like this idea-might be my first attempt.

    I also started making the pockets for the bed rails to sit in and started the rails too. Lots left to do, but it's coming along.

    Thanks Tom-definitely 70's colors! I got some wheels, tires, and wheel covers from DRIPTROIT 71 to match and put a little black paint on them.

    Thanks guys-I appreciate it. Not too much done in the last couple days-a little foil and started assembling the engine.

    I did most of the prep work on the body two weeks ago with the cream color. We had a nice day last weekend and sprayed the burnt orange color. I got ahead of myself trying to hurry, and never taped the shape around the wheel wells-ugh. So after drying, I sanded and taped, and re-sprayed.

    I haven't posted in a while but I think this one will be worth sharing. I'm attempting to duplicate my Uncle Bill's 78 Ford pickup that he's owned since new. The Firestone kit is the basis of it, and yes I know that was more or less a heavy duty, extended wheel base, camper special-type; but you get the idea. It's not going to be 100% correct, just a gift that Uncle Bill will hopefully enjoy.
