    Micheal I can't wait to see your next post with the new cast. What is the investment that you used to set the mold ? It looks like it's sand cemented. I'm also guessing that the high heat from the molten steel burns all the plastic with out any residue in the mold. 
    Thanks for providing this step by step process.

    Terry nice scratch building on the tail gate. I would do like Rob sugessted and put some paint on it before deciding to redo it.

    Thanks Vernon I was hoping it was correct as is. 
    I cut the frame and added 35 scale inches it was the same 35" I cut out of the Bighorn.

    Thanks for the comments guys. 
    Gator yes the front is high I've had to grind out the inside of the radiator to get it to level out in my next pictures you will see the correction.

    Test mock up to see how everything is lining up. The cab will need some grinding on the inside for the radiator to fit and allow the front to set a little lower to label every thing. 
    Im not sure if there should be a roof vent that is on this one and is it in the correct location? Checking pictures it's hard to tell if some had the roof vent and some didn't so I'm not sure if it should stay or remove it
