    Slap me and call me Rookie but wrong with it? I think it looks great.

    She looks cold!! Turn on the darn heat. Of course I guess running all those LED's, you have to pinch pennies somewhere. lol...

    Seriously, I'm jealous. I've been wanting this kit for quite sometime. Might just break down in the VERY near future and get one. 650 parts is a little intimidating though lol. How do the parts fit together? Your's looks great thus far and including lights for the bar, fog lights, etc. is awesome. Keep up the amazing work. Following this one till the end. Might even look like I'm stalking.

    Killing it man. I can't thank you enough for the reference pictures. I'm not a big accuracy guy anyways. I just wanted to know wasn't going to mess up my frame or anything. Big Red looks super good.

    Killer build. Love the W.I.P too. Paint is sweet too! Hope your Boss gave you a few days of paid leave.

    Killer creation man. Looking really good.

    I agree. Looking really good.

    I need to ask of a favor if permitted. I'll be working on a 99 Silverado very soon that I flame on lowering. If possible, I would like to see how you did your frame work so I go about this the right way.

    Z'd Frames- Question
    So I'm really wanting to Z a frame. The stance to me is awesome. I have attempted it once only to hit a brick wall. That's the reason why I'm here. For the frame I Z'd, I had a complication with the engine not setting right so the interior floor would still sit correctly. How do I get around this?

    I'm still really new to scratch building, so building a new interior floor would be difficult. I've considered cutting out a trans section from another kit, but I hate to do that for the sole purpose of either waiting for a replacement part or messing up both interior floors.

    My best thought (thus far) is to build a lower section near the motor mounts for the engine and lower them down. Any other ideas?

    For Sale signs came in a kit. I'm sure I can scale some down and send you the file in an email and you can print them off.

    No. LVL 2. Honestly, should be considered a snap. Goes together with hardly any glue lol

    Peterbilt 359- "Big Red"
    Finished this one earlier today. Will be putting some simple decals on and finishing up with Future & Polish. For now, here's the Pre-Finished look. Couldn't wait to share lol

    So, I ended up on a massive "Finish" kick and get this one done. Still considering the fender creation, but that will be another time.
  15. MikeyB08 added a post in a topic does anyone here spray with Matte finish and then clear?   

    I'm actually transitioning to doing this. I have such a hard time holding my distance for gloss paint that it's uneven.
