    did it eat the whole bed or just the bedsides? I can help you out with the bedsides if that's all you need buddy.

    I hate telling my resin customers when I have issues. However, I have found that communicating with them is key. I typically throw some type of extras in with most orders, but especially when I ship an order later than planned.  Personally I feel it's the right thing to do.  As for the long lead times, I think the longest lead time I've had on any items was 3 weeks, but the 2 bulilders that ordered were regulars and they insisted on prepaying to be the first to get an item I was still finishing up.  Even though they knew they had to wait, I still threw in extras as usual and kept them informed as to the status.  Again, communication goes a long way especially when people are spending their hard earned dollar on specialty parts in this hobby (obsession for me) that we all love.

    I appreciate the good words fellas. These will be available from our Facebook page or the website we have under construction. Also I will be having my wife take better display pics of it this weekend.

    That should be ready to order in about 3 weeks buddy. As far as ordering, I have a Facebook community page under this same name that I'm working through currently. I will have a site up and running through big cartel.com in a few weeks. The website is active but I have only loaded a few items on it to get the hang of everything. I will start loading more items and payment options onto that site next weekend when I get back home from out of town work.

    Duramax Diesel Engine resin
    Finally got a painted and assembled copy of my resin Chevy Duramax Diesel engine completed. The block and bell housing are from a kit for the basis and the valve covers were 3D drawn/printed, but all the rest is scratch built. There will be 2 different styles of valve covers included to choose which generation of the engine you want to represent. I am still waiting on a friend (that was test building it) to finish the instruction diagrams. He says the instructions should be finished within a few weeks. I have also included a pic of it being test fit into a 99 Chevy chassis with my Chevy crewcab also.

    Been a while since I've posted in here, but I finally got one of my resin duramax engines painted and built up as a display model. I did it in just basic paint scheme of black and silver but I didn't paint the pulleys. I should've as it would have brought out the detail of them. I'm still waiting for an artist friend in Colorado to finish the instruction diagrams for me. He says they should be ready in a few weeks though.

    Here's a pic of a build up a friend did of one of my resin 5.9 cummins. I just finished a Chevy duramax and will have them available soon also.

    I scratch built a 5.9 a little while back and started casting them.

    Yes these are available buddy.

    With the way these go together they could be made into dually wheels. I hadn't really thought about that. Each wheel comes as 2 pieces - a ring and an insert. The inserts can be on from the back or front of the ring depending on what offset is needed for the build. I thought I had a pic of the seperate wheel parts. I'll try to get a pic of them up tonight after work

    Those are my Chevy Texas edition wheels in the background of the pic btw. Simple and clean.

    I'll try to get my engine built up this week when I have some spare time. Then I'll post up some pics of it. I'm working on a banks twin turbo option to be available in addition to the engine.

    These are the moto metal style wheels I've got and the nitto mud grappler tires are on them. These are scale 19" wheels.

    I just finished making a duramax Diesel engine and will be offering them in resin in mid August. I've also done the 460 ford conversion to 7.3 powerstroke and offer those in resin. I haven't set up a photobucket to. The built up engine is my 7.3 stroke and other 2 are my duramax. I'm in the process of building a Dmax up to put into my 65 Chevy dually conversion build.

    Just got back from vacation this week and starting to cast them up. The site admins won't allow selling on the page so I can't post pricing. I will post some pics of them as soon as I have some current ones of the wheels and tires. Pm me if you need more info on them.
