Just a quick mock-up of my current project. I've pretty much got the frame ready to paint, which was a lot of work in itself. There was some sink marks all the way down both outside frame rails, which would have been very noticeable with me building this without the fenders...... Also, the bed has been shortened some. Still need to finish with that.

I'll probably end up using another set of wheels and tires, not sure yet.... I would really like to find some from the '32 Chrysler.

Thanks for looking, and all comments are welcome.......

Going to be a nice looking truck.  I had a set of the Chrysler wheel/tires, but used them on this.

This is a great kit. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress.

Thanks, fellas.... I have a can of a dark leather brown color that I plan to use on this. Quick question, could the dropped axle from the '50 Ford pickup have been used on the front? It's a heavy I-beam piece...... If so, I have the axle that I may need.

The piece across the frame was cut from the fender piece and glued in place to positively locate the cab and bed.

Dialed in the stance here.... just modified the '50 Ford lowered front axle for the front, OOB in the rear... plus big-n-little tires.
