I just got one of the new 66 Ford f100’s. Now this is my first time doing a slammed pickup so I might not be doing everything perfect. 

I am using the stock frame that I have heavily modified with a revell Ford svt lighting front suspension, a giant C notch in the rear and I will do a Ford 9” and engine from the revell nascar.

Be sure to watch that front tire clearance under the hood.:)

I'd say you're doing the suspension just fine. Looks almost like an air suspension system that's aired down.  Might have a hard time turning a corner the way it sits right now. I like the way you grafted the front suspension in.

Thanks guys. 

I have painted the frame and the motor. Now I am deciding on air cleaner and paint colour and would like your guys opinion.    

I was thinking of maybe a turquoise colour like this.

Question. If you are going to take them time to do custom work, and add detail, why wouldn't you take the time to make the work clean? A couple of sanding sticks from the nail care area of the drug store and five minutes would have made that frame alteration look real slick.
