That's a good looking Ford truck already so anything you do to it will be icing on the cake.  I'll keep tabs on this one.  

Thanks Bob.

Nice start. Wondering how you are going to build the front push bumper. 

Oh, something simple along these lines,

Great! Thanks! Now I’m gonna have to buy another kit for the wheels 🤣

Hey, the decal sheet is worth half the cost, real cool stuff on it.

Thanks all...

That's a good looking bumper. I have done a couple in the past but with a wood finish on the push surface. The cut up old tire surface would prevent some paint damage in real life. Many many years ago I used a traffic sensor that I got from the Highway Dept. scrap heap. This is when the sensors were a metal plate that a cars front tires would rest on to trigger a traffic light change. The back side had about a half inch of hard rubber that would be facing the roadway bed and was bonded to the steel plate. We would get these for next to nothing and cut to size, then attach mounting brackets to mount to the front bumper or frame.

Thanks Bob, I mixed some colors and sprayed thru airbrush.

Nice.  Rust-Oleum gets a bad rap but I think their 2X flat gray primer sprays out great.  I use it all the time.

I agree with Tom on the patina finish. I like the chrome accents you added to the grill. Those areas are just raised ridges on the OEM grill but what you did adds a new look to the grill that looks like something that should have been done.

Since this is one of my favorite kits I’ll go first!

I like it! Very nice patina over a very typical color. Unique grille treatment too

Thank you Tom,

Thanks for looking and feel free to comment.

Looks good, I have 2 Beagles.................... they shed year round. I swear clothes come out of the dryer with fur on them. :) Love them old dogs to pieces though.
