I built this from the Deserter kit when it was released. The dumb toolbox engraving on the bed was filled in with Evercoat. The kit has an 84 grill, but not an 84 bumper, so I filled in the bumper's lights and painted it with a Molotow (unfortunately, that was my first experience with Molotow and I handled it too much, making it dull) 

Paint is Krylon camo colors Khaki and Dark Brown, with Krylon acrylic clear. You can see what those paints look like without clear in the interior. The clear really darkened it up. 

The engine is from the newest tool amt 57 Chevy kit, which is a 427/TH400. The 2wd front suspension is actually from a 91 Firebird. Not correct or detailed, but it works. Rims are AMC rallies from a Gremlin kit.

Looks sharp..I have something like that in mind w/ a couple of mine,  thinking of using the AMT Chevy van 2wd suspension.

That is nice, like the colors. ZForce Modelworkx has the correct bumper available in 3D resin.

I like how you redid the front end. The stance looks the way they were set at that time. The wheels look much like the Chev/GMC Rally' wheels also. Great idea for the front suspension.

Very nice.  The colors look just right. 

My uncle has a '87 in about the same color scheme but reversed with the brown on top.

You’re not kidding about the clear. What a difference between the interior and the body. But, the result is very realistic.

Outstanding build.  Really like the kit-bashing you did to get this finished ride.  Also your color separation is excellent.

Very nice build Randy!  The color combo is superb and the details on the big block engine are top notch.  Well done sir!!!
