I picked up two of the new ‘78 Dodge D100’s and am building one of them box stock. 

I have 11 of the  original ones that I plan on building some day. 

Anyways this one is being painted with Scale Finishes eggshell white and  Citrus green and a light green interior. 

I have the chassis completed and am working on the interior right now.

I decided to use Citron green for the main body color. 

Should be able to get it painted by the end of the day.

That's a great color choice!,but you might want to sand out those dust bunnies on the front end before putting on the clearcoats.

The hood is getting a re-do and the rest of it looks good.

 Got the hood repainted and the tail gate. And gave the cab & bed a final clear-coat and sprayed some Alclad on the grille.
