Bookmarking this page. I know we talked at GSL about your real truck. Very cool to see you picking up the model build once again.
I have built a few of these 67-72 trucks & had a friend with a bigblock powered 72 Cheyenne. Love this trucks!
Good old plexiglass headlight covers. Brings back happy thoughts of a time long gone.
Love the KMET stuff too. Was the only station to listen to! Any reason you didn't place your bumper sticker upside down?
I too, buy my BMF straight from the manufacturer. I tried the bright BMF when it 1st came out and it just didn't work.
I also recently had problems with the regular chrome foil. I had 2 sheets from 2009 and I couldn't use either of them. The foil would tear when I tried to peel it from the backing.
I bought some new BMF and the package said "Improved" Not sure how old it was, but the glue seemed a lot stickier then the old stuff.
Nice build. I built a similar Ford stake bed model as a kid using the Star Truk kit. Getting ready to build another.
I think I have a few of the stake bed sides like you show in your pictures. What kit are they originally from?
