  1. Thanks Albert, Jacob and Earl. I appreciate the very kind words. I simply could NOT fathom doing all that work to the interior and then using such a crappy OOB glass assy like this: So ….. I cut it up into sections and cleaned the sections up some. I also fabricated some sun visors to help the realism out a tad:
  2. Steering column installed with the scratch built gear shift lever, turn signal/ multifunction switch and tilt lever. I also managed to put an ignition switch as well as the ignition key and door lock key on a key ring. The ignition key was then inserted into the switch and glued into place. There.....that's more like it:
  3. I really like all the details and scratch building that you're throwing at this one. Will be following along.
  4. Too cool. Way too cool!
  5. `64 Chevrolet Fleetside

    Some really good work here. Where'd you get the locks and the Jack Daniels bottle at?
  6. Impressive scratchbuilding.
  7. Thanks Jacob. Funny about that radio (and knock on wood for me) is that I've heard horror stories about how they always went out thus were always being replaced by technicians in the dealership. Mine's still going strong. FYI LMC truck has a replacement radio for these that fits right in place of the original and has iPhone interface, Bluetooth technology and two USB ports.

  8. I do like that steering wheel. I never even saw a C1500 Silverado with a 5 spd till I moved from Dallas down to Corpus. 119K eh? You've still got a lot of useful mileage out of that truck.
  9. After 4 days of painting and detailing I've got the dash finished. Lots of masking and painting tonal variations and colors involved but I managed to get it done. After all the dashes I've used decals on for IP gauges this one's kind of "meh" to me but it's done anyhow. Next up...….steering column detailing.
  10. Stance looks killer as does the wheels. Good work.
  11. I grew up with those comics. Ask a kid today who "Beetle Bailey" is and you'll get a blank stare. I guess we're all showin' our age here. This is too cool NOT to watch. Bring it Bill.
  12. Ok gang. I've got the interior tub pretty much done except for the foot pedals. I really like this photo as it shows the color contrast on the seats very well. I finished up the passengers seat this morning with the color contrast. I left the pleated part of the seat the original color that I painted it and used a mixture of red with a little black ground up pastel and dry brushed it onto smooth parts of the seat to slightly darken the color tone for a subtle yet highly noticeable contrast. I was surprised with the results. Everything is adhered into place. The door handle/ switch bezels and all details have been painted here and I thought I'd add a Coke to the cup holder. I mean....why not? I'm smilin' so why not have a Coke to go with it?
  13. That's quite the bit of body work. Looking forward to the painting stage.
