    Yes Steve, that is the excellent Ed Fluck cab, one of his last ones available. I used the chassis from the AMT pickup kit as well as the bed, as you noted. I'm having an issue with the interior tub fitting with the slight engine set back. Think I'm going to need to make one out of aluminum sheet.
    Post some pics Steve unless you have a thread started. if that's the case, please supply a link.

    I found and used a very similar yellow called Tamiya Camel Yellow. It would make a really good match. I used it on my Slingster. Here's a sunlight pic.

    Thanks Steve. In reviewing the photos, I've come to realize there just isn't much room between the engine compartment and the interior tub for a firewall. I'll probably need to fabricate one from printing plate. Maybe even try some bead rolling on it. I hope I don't need to cut off the front part of the interior tub.

    Thanks for the write up Jonathan. Much appreciated. Thanks to you as well Cliff. So glad you enjoy it.
    I keep thinking of things to add to this so it may not be done after all.

    I know I have a beat up body that could spare its rear fenders. Let me check when I get home. I also have a PE grill.

    His decal printing on his Alps is also top notch. Send him a vector based file on his template and you'll be amazed.

    Holy geez Tim. Impressive, very impressive. And to think you're doing this without any aid from a computer.

    I have this problem occasionally and another that is similar to this. I can't seem to add a comment on the bottom of a thread. The reply window is there but I can't get the cursor to show up in the reply area. I'm using a MacBook Pro laptop and iMac desktop using Firefox on both. I can go in with Safari as my browser and that works but not Firefox.

    Thanks Kerry. The ride height is what drew me to build this, had to be up in the air.
    Got a bit done over the weekend including the rest of the fuel lines, fuel pump and gas tank. Engine is glued in with telescoping drive shaft in place. I put a piece of aluminum printing plate over the frame where the as tank is and riveted it in. Still need to connect the fuel line to the tank but that's a minor detail. Need to run the return line from the fuel distribution block in front of the injectors. 
    Here's a few pictures including one showing the stance. 





    More this week, stay tuned.

    No other problems noted with the Slingster. As you know, this kits has other buyuild options so I can't speak for those but if they go together anything like the Slingster, should be without problems.
    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Here's a couple pictures of the brakes. They're PE discs and the calipers are metal. I can't remember the brand here at work. I took a bunch of pictures but this camera doesn't do close-ups very well.
