    Great build. I am doing a similar custom theme but with a 50's ford & modern ford parts The Vette Mods on this are awesome. I will need to acquire that model vette kit now for some ideas of my own, care to share which kit(s) you used for the Wheels, Motor, suspension?

    Have you ever built a kit where it seemed like everything went wrong? That was my struggle with this one. Ive had the kit in various stages for a few years and finally decided to finish it. When I first started it, I had an idea for a slammed custom frame truck with airbags etc. So I scratch built a frame and cut into the bed of the truck to make room for the large tires which would be sitting deep inside of the bed. After pulling the kit back out a few weeks ago I scratched the custom idea and just decided to slam it as a curbside and be done with it. I had fit issues with virtually all the body parts due to my earlier plans. Final assembly was very frustrating but I got it done. Wont be winning anything with this one, but its a decent shelf model.

    Chevy S-10 Parts
    Im looking for a stepside bed for an AMT 94-99 S-10. Apparently it is standard on the pictured kit. I have an unpainted standard bed that Im willing to trade. Also interested in The body kit parts for the AMT S-10 Xtreme. If anyone has either parts i can pay for shipping  or may have parts you need for trade. I only need these couple of parts, not an entire kit.  Thanks in advance guys.

    I took one of the original rallye wheels and cut the lip off of it. Then placed the lip on top of another rallye wheel. Essentially it was a homemade wheel sleeve. Thanks

    Minus a few minor things, this one is done. Here are a couple shots of the final product.

    AAR Cuda Decals needed!
    Really Really need a set of the side stripes from one of the Revell AAR Cuda kits. I have everything done on the kit but no decals (see my WIP). Any help is appreciated and I have plenty of stuff to trade.

    Thanks gents.RR, I wouldn't dare put some wild wheels on a classic muscle car. Quick update: working on some wiring / plumbing that will mostly be hidden by the air cleaner anyway.

    This is cool, even more so the fact that it was made with all the custom stuff in the 1970's before all this aftermarket stuff we have available now was even around and the fact that you were 12!. I started building around that age in the 90's and my early builds were no where near as good lookin.

    This Kit started as the disaster of this thread-
    Stripped all the terrible paint and had the idea to give it a Star Wars theme.

    All of the paint is finished & has been polished out. Added the chrome trim and panel washes today. Still in need of some replacement AAR stripe decals.
