Well....... It has been a long time since I have been on this forum and made an update on this project.
Models have taken the back burner since I was working on two of my BMW E30s I have.
So I how to have a few updates before to long.
Has anyone ever bought anything from this web site? www.hobbylinc.com
I bought my wheels from them on the 18th and they didnt ship them till the 23rd. 5 days to process a order and ship is a little long no??
Well anyways Im waititng on my wheels to come then the project will continue. Anyone happen to have a caddy front bumper?? I need to make a thread for one..
Anyways I worked on the cab today. I added a little panel to the bottom of it to act as a body line, to me it looks good and its just what it needed to break things up. I was also working on the bed, I made a roll pan and shaved the tailgate. I dont know if Im going to do the caddy lights now or not.
I got so much going on right now I think I just need to focus on the cab, then the bed, then the frame.. I think I might pick up another project so Im not working to much on this one and get frustrated from all the work. Im sure some of you know what I mean..
ok I wasnt sure what wheels I wanted, So I bought both sets of wheels and I will choose when they come.
I guess I better get to work and get the body done.. Then move onto the frame.. Anyone know where I can order air bags?
Yes, I just got the bed that day. So I sanded and primed it.. I do this before I put down the bondo because it gives it something to hold onto.
Im going to add a different body line though. Something more smooth and sleek...
Its going to lay body all the way around. The wheel in the rear is bigger then the wheel opening so its holding it up a little. Thats why you see that gap under there like that.
I will have it figured out by the weekend..
Figure I would show a few quick updates before I got back to work on this before the weekend.
I really need to figure out what to do with my front bumper. I might glue a piece of plastic along the bottom of the cab and bed to add a body line. Kinda like the escalade and I need to adjust my door lines..
I got my bed today in the mail. Thanks again Steven. I appreciate it very much!!!
I test fitted it up earlier today and it looks great!! I should have a few more things done on the truck by the weekend and I will snap a few more photos then.
Keep a look out.
I have looked through the tips and tricks section and I couldnt find it. Well unless I was looking to hard and just skipped over it. Does anyone have any tips for cutting in new door lines and keeping them crisp and straight??
