Finished up the main floor section of the cab.This is what's know as a traditional body-dropped floor.

WOW!!!!!! i am blown away by this!!

I just looked through your progress in the other thread.......that is incredible jeremy! The doors had to be hard to cut open, the "A" pillars are sooooo thin, but you did a great job, and that frame! wow....just incredible. i dont know what else to say. way beyond my scratchbuilding ability man.

all i can say is keep it goin, i will definetely be watching this one! more more more! LOL

cheers!

Thanx Bryan I appreciate that.This build is mainly to see how far I can take my modelling abilities.Plus it gives me a good idea of what my dream truck will look like someday.

Wow its been a while since I updated this thread.Haven't been highly motivated to build lately.But once I saw bryan's version of this truck it light a fire under me to get back to the bench.Not a whole lot of progress but all 4 control arms are done.

I've started on the rest of the cab floor.I have half of the driveshaft tunnel done.

Thanx for lookin'

Here is the start of the trans tunnel/ctr console.The console and backwall/stereo enclosure will be smoothed into what looks like one giant enclosure.

Made a small amount of progress in the past couple days.I finished my driveshaft tunnel / center console.

DreamTruckBuildUp67.jpg

I still need to smooth everything out and build the sub enclosure in front of the rearwall which is my next step.

I removed the vent windows from the front glass area.You can see in the picture a stock glass assembly and the modified one.

DreamTruckBuildUp66.jpg

I test fitted the dash as well.I need to shim the sides a bit to get it to fit properly.
