This truck was a redo I built back in the 90's. The first was rather boring in lavender and was built box stock with all the 90's flair including a billet steering wheel.

I got these wheels from a 1/24 scale R/C Cuda. They are a little oversized but I think this looks really cool. I had to omit the inner fender wells and tub out the rear. I used a prescription medication bottle cut in half. I had to scratch build the exhaust and the drive shaft. I used tubed aluminum make this happen.

The Wally World flat white on the outside and duplicolor plymouth red on the inside. After I sprayed the body about 3 times, I rubbed it down with a fresh bounce sheet. I know this sounds crazy but it just evens everything out and leaves a nice satin sheen. For the exhaust, I used paper clips for the hangers and the box kit's tips. I had to heat and bend the original pipes to make the connection from the headers.

The build thread can be found on the workbench

Thanks for looking
