Had get that nose down, has always bothered me about this kit, that and it needed to have a modern drive train and suspension system.

Update:

Nearing Completion, Moved my car and it Rained today, kept me inside this afternoon. Good time to screw around with Tiny cars.

Final Mock up. Yeah it looks about right.

Engine: decided with keeping with the fairly modern drivetrain (as I would do one of these trucks) I went with a 355 CI GM Performance Parts Crate motor with a few alterations (loosely based on a friends 383 Stroker, now bored to 391, badass motor). Plug wires are a bit think but then again, his motor has 8mm hi-po Plug Wires and Ignition, even my Fury's Accel Ignition plug wires are 8MM. Enough rambling.

With Trailer that needs a bit more work.

Still need to finish the interior, do some exhaust (don't wanna wake the neighbors like when we fired up the 391 with open headers) and some underhood detailing.

Still Going at it. While waiting for the interior to dry I've started assembling some parts, one the interior is done I can put it together and get the cab on, waiting for the rad to dry also then it can go in and get plumbed. And then it's nearly done.

Engine is permanently attached as well is the bed and the Front bumper now, need to add the pulleys to the engine and the Alternator and power steering pump, then it's done, need to figure out exhuast as well.

Thanks Steve, I Really don't consider this truck a Rat, but I still try to detail my stuff to the way I would in 1:1.
