This is really looking great. I love the colors. I would have never thought to use the lightgreen, but it looks great. This is really coming together. 

I used Krylon Ivory for the base color and couldn't make up my mind on a second color.

My wife picked the second color. Had half a can of Ocean Mist Rustoleum sitting in the closet and she said it was perfect so that is what it became.

Bed floor, header and rear panel ready for primer and finish.

Narrowed the hood, grill and working on the fender extensions.

Where did you make your hood cuts at if I may ask

I got the idea from an article in Scale Auto magazine that I had years ago and no longer have.

I believe it was the width of the center raised section at the front angled to the center point at the back then squared it off to meet the cowl.

Been a long time ago so do some measuring and research it online. It may still be out there somewhere.

Seen somewhere this morning it's an 1/8 inch from each side of the wrecker bed.

That will help as I have an ho 1/87 Peterbilt that I will try to narrow the hood on 

Thanks again
