    I like the plow... er front suspension.
    This model was the first 'super detailed' and 'not show truck' one I ever built. Old farm truck with tools made from sprue and everything. Like the build!

    Yea I love steelies too, but for a whole 'nuther reason.

    And it's not Yokohama (thinking tires I guess ) It's Yakima. Here is the factory URL for their baskets;

    This is probably the model that Civic is using;

    My father used to make a lot of things out of leather, and if I recall correctly snake skin is just thin on it's on. But it wont be as supple, I don't think.

    I think some of the people here who would like to put it in new cars would be do go to look into the "leather shirts" they make. If I'm not mistake they are a split skin (suede on both sides) and then are perforated to help with breathing. They hang like a thin cloth. Might even work for Bill Geary's convertible.

    While I hate to knock a build, I think the roof rack is too big. That looks about the size of the rack I have on my 1:1 K5.
    It also looks too far off the roof.

    I know that's a 2 door, but I think if you measure it will be much larger than anything Yokahama offers in roof racks?

    Why not a luggage rack on the trunk lid? Don't see many of those!

    Hopefully you caught the correction.
    Dual tank = one on each side.
    Single tank is apparently on the drivers side.

    In any event, there are no body panel lines around the gas tank that gead to the cab and the top of the bed, like on the fleet side GMC bed.

    They are really nice, very clean.
    I love the super-detail in the other one too.
    I think I might need to make a brace of these for the V12 that's going in my chopped truck...

    When I looked at the pic of the Silverado at first, I thought it was a 1:1 that you took inspiration from. To me, made all the more believable by the forked up redneck lift! The Ford to me was even more believable, with the house in the back ground. A+!

    SCARY STEERING!!

    No I'm still thinking about that. I'm thinking of a clean DD custom type of truck. Deep blue (maybe 2 tone?). I'm already thinking I need to just make a frame from scratch. I think I should be able to get the frame scrapin' on the ground. The engine specs are kinda modest though -
    # Max Power: 520 PS (382 kW; 513 hp) @ 8000 rpm
    # Max Torque: 347 lb·ft (470 N·m) @ 6500 rpm

    Still the best option I have for it. Maybe a twin turbo setup?

    Don't forget that it was on the other side for a single tank setup! Chevy trucks with dual tanks had a cap on each side (one of the dumbest things I can think of in the world of engineering, and I am a chevy man through-and-through).

    Actually, it is on the drivers side. But here is a GREAT idea that we modeler's can use!
