FYI. Just a heads up. Note how the instructions have you assemble the interior. I do not recommend joining the floor to the chassis when it says to, I'm very happy I didn't. When assembled the interior is VERY difficult to put in the body. I recommend only doing it once.
Thanks Tim. Rest assured that I crafted mounts for both the Paxton and alternator. No floaters round here. Some more done today. The last of the body decals. Very simple stripe. And the exhaust is done. I realize that most folks would have done something else, but I'm quite happy with it. It looks great when the body is in place.

Next up is fabbing a new drag link. The stretched chassis made the kit pieces too short.
Excellent work. And great to see one in the "completed" column from you Darren. If I might be so bold though, I don't think the skull headlight works with the rest of the build though. It looks great, but it doesn't fit the theme.
I've really come to appreciate the whole pro-touring trend. At first I figured it was just another trend like pro-street. But unlike pro-street, pro-touring makes a car more streetable when it's done, albeit a "bit" faster. So I think it'll be popular for quite a while. I have at least two pro-touring builds in the planning stages.
I quite agree. But an entire generation of millennials grew up on this stuff. As a kid from the 70's, I don't dislike Bugs and Daffy now that I'm an adult, and still watch the old toons occasionally. So I don't hold it against my sons.
You aren't wrong. But it is my wife's truck and aside from checking the fluids every weekend, I don't mess with it. I keep my car pretty clean, but she is apparently uninterested in washing the truck. As long as it's mechanically sound, I don't care either.
