Looking good, Jason!  I see you eliminated the front axle like I did to mine.  Someone tried telling me that you can't see the axle and I told them they were wrong.  You can definitely see the axle from the bottom front of  the chassis.

Thanks for the comments everyone. mrmike I actually only mocked it up with the wheels on I’ve since painted the centres , I need to post and update but I’m going to take your advise and mount the front wheels without the axle

Looking like a nice, clean build so far. I definitely need to pick one of these kits up.

Absolutely! It comes close to falling together and the chassis / drivetrain is just begging to go under different bodies!

Lose the front axle and make front shocks. Will look way better. That's what I did with mine.

I've seen a ton of them both in this forum and on the Facebook groups that I'm in and I don't think I've seen a bad one done yet. Never get tired of seeing them either, just a great looking kit!

Finally had the time to post an update. I ended up masking the rims with bare metal foil and painting the centre’s with a mix of couple of Testors metalizers . I also finished of the interior, I just have to prime and paint the cab and tray now . The weather isn’t the greatest here in New Zealand at the moment so I might try and get it painted in the spray booth at work.
