Very cool! The cargo area details are really nice. I especially like that you added an air dam to the front. I’ve been thinking about doing the same for mine and now I’m convinced. Glad I didn’t start painting the body yet!

Nice details you've added. I've always enjoyed the irony of using a $20 set of vice grips to replace a $6 window crank! :D Nice touch.

Great choice of colors too.

Great looking build. All the little details you're adding give it the extra personality and help tell a story. Who hasn't had to use pliers to roll down a window or open a door ?

Great build, any planned color for the body

Thanks...the body will be the same color as the Interior tub with a white roof...

The steering wheel is close to the actual exterior color.

Nice work! Where did you get the cooler and did it come with the ice? Back in the day vice grips were cheap if you bought the generic ones.

The cooler came from ebay, yes it comes with the ice...I used Styrene blocks to lift the ice up to .ake it look like it's full of ice.

Awesome build so far were did you get the hood.

Ebay....the hood and lower lip came as a set...just needs a little work to get it to fit correctly since it's actually madr for the Trumpeter kit.
