Hi Anton, I used several light coats of Tamiya “smoke”. Do some tests on a spare set of wheels. From my experience, the key is several light coats, if you try to go thick the results aren’t as good. It is a bit tricky to get it even on the deeper offset, but with your skill, definitely doable. By the way, where did those wheels come from? I didn’t see that in the thread, I really like them.

Cheers, Steve

Okay, thanks for the tips will buy a Tamiya smoke and decan it and have a go. 🙂 

they are from the Tamiya Porsche GT2, race car have slicks and the street version have some nice meats. Thing is that I used lips from my PB, probably from a aoshima wheel set can’t remember which, and made the Porsche fronts as rears with the lip and the Porsche rears as the Silverado fronts. The tires are a mix, used some tires with enough side wall and cut 3pcs apart to make 2 tires. The front tires came with Pegasus “19 T’s I Can show a picture later when I am at home.

Here is the recipe as mentioned above , Porsche 911 GT2 front wheels with a extra deep dish from some “18 Aoshima wheel kit. Rear tires are 225/50R16 🤪cut a part to get the width and stretched over a “18 wheel. Front wheels are the rear wheels from the Porsche.

Bought some 3D printed parts for my builds.. here is a quick mock-up of the intake and planed placement for the turbos. These turbos won’t be used I think there will be an other set.

this intake looks so good so I will use this instead of my own thought out piece! 
And thanks @Ghost_33for hooking me up!

Made some changes to the base engine. I won’t use the original intake so I used plastic strip to make the inside of the cylinder heads. Also used the 3d printed valley pan. 
made my second intake cut a bit better so it retained more height which suits the tall truck body well.

This thing is the most insane thing I've seen in a while.  The amount of fab work is awesome.  I wish I waited on my for gt lemans kit to do something similar.  But man keep it up.  I can't wait to see how this gets finished.
