WOW!! I love those old trucks from AMT!! Yours looks way better being shortened up. I hope you keep that stance also. It appears that you removed the chrome from the hood sides, and filled the opening with styrene. I've done the same idea on my '61 Ford pickup. I'll be watching your progress!
The last BIG slump I had took 5 years to get out of. Picked some parts box stuff, and thought I'd just throw something together. Glad I did! The motivation came back. So we all go through this, but it does come back. Lots of good ideas here, like clearing the bench and start with a "clean sheet"!
