Jim, thank you also for your kind comment too man. I do my best at things. If I feel I need to explain something then I do an then I also let the progress photos speak as well. Sometimes few words are good an yet the photos does the speaking job.

If anyone of you see something an would like to know how I pulled it off, please don't be afraid to ask me at all. I'll do my best to answer.

The rim. I took an looked at it. I wanted to give it alittle more detail so I started to add a valve stem by drilling into the rim from the other side. I used a cloth pin as the stem an glued it in place.

Askly, that was my first idea I had, but my friend wanted the air bags to work. Shrink wrap wouldn't fold in like vinyl electric tape does, after noticing that, that was why I went with the tape for. But your idea was the very 1st I tried though. There is alot more detail to go into this project yet. It would be nice if this little rig could be turn key model an drive away with.

Well I know it's been alittle while sense I did an update on this project. I been working at building this projects in units. I scratch built new leaf springs for in the front as well. Had a hood fitment issue also came up. I swear this project been fighting me sense almost day 1. The plastic isn't all that good either an the cab is almost a glue bomb anymore and had pieces replaced. The chrome on the grill was bad that when I put tape on it an went to pull the tape off the chrome came off with the tape!. So I used aluminum tape like BMF for on the grill. The top piece of the grill my friend wants me to make the same color as the truck so that's why I left the center area raw for. Plus I had to scratch build a new hood hanger as well an mounting bracket an pins. I also had to take an extend the front axle out afew hairs as well. The hood is just temp glued into place.

I thought a hobby was to relieve stress? This much detail cannot be good for your nerves! Looks SUPER!
