The pedals and mat were molded in. There wasn't any pads or anything. :)

Good to see young people enjoying the hobby! Would like to see some even younger joining the site! :)

Definitely glad to see younger modellers. That means the hobby is surviving. :) Good work so far. Keep it up!

I painted the air filter black and it just looked plain to me. So i decided to do this to it.

There was some red paint that went under the paint so i took my little testors bottle of black and i touched up the edges.

Ok this front tire is a little messed up. The little thing that snaps into the wheel broke and i tried to glue it back. It look really good when i glued it but i guess it wasnt totally dried and it stuck that way.

Thanks guys! WoW! Its been forever since i finished this model! Ive since turned 18 and have bought two real people trucks! 1971 GMC Sierra Grande with a 7.7l Cadillac 472!! And also a 1978 GMC Sierra Grande 2500 4x4 4-speed! I love them! Ive rebuilt 3 carbs, 2 transmissions, and im rebuilding a mild 350 for my 71. Deadline is may 1st for the first car show of the season. Ive finished the 65 chevy pickup in my signature and im almost done with a Pro-street-ish 72 GTO and i just bought a 66 mustang GT350 kit and started that a few days ago.

Thanks,

Mike

Way to go Mike, it really is nice to see more of you young people getting into the hobby. Sure wish my son took more of an interest in it. He's too busy with Xbox LOL

Thanks! Ive gotten one of my best friends into modeling as well! We're both doing the 66 GT350. And i understand the video game black hole! I was addicted to World of Warcraft for a few years. I still play, but not as much anymore, ive realized that some things are more important than games. And now with two classic trucks, i need the time to keep them running lol
