This began with the '71 Ranger, I mixed and matched components from the other Moebius kits to get this down to a base model '70. I retained the '71's big block and auto, but the spares box coughed up a transfer case, front axle, and leaf springs. The wheels and tires came from Scenes Unlimited along with the hitch, while the Warn winch is an old KFS piece. For all the bellyaching I hear about warped hoods with this kit, this is only the second one I've gotten with one, and since this was a beater I didn't bother to try and straighten it because I liked the "tweaked" look. :) There's a CB unit, a dash mounted fan, and a brody knob on the steering wheel, too bad they're nearly impossible to see on the completed pickup.

Really less pleased with my mirrors every time I look at them, so I might redo those at some point.

Nice job Chuck, really like the stance and those wheels really make it look the part. I am not surprised that you weathered this one, your skills are outstanding.

I always enjoy how you Michiganize your builds. That is quit a front bumper. Looks great.

This is excellent, a perfect match of technique and subject matter. It looks like a tough old beast. Your weathered paintwork looks the business, can I ask how you achieved that finish? Great photography too.

 Thanks guys!

The finish was obtained with the good old salt technique and some sanding. I also used the end of a toothpick to add some random scratches. The "smudge" on the driver's side door is just that- a smudge from my thumb left there from me gently nudging the cab back onto the paint stand... I liked how it looked so I didn't fix it. :)
