Well an update on the truck, the body is sitting in color and I'm hoping that I can get pics of it tonight, there is a spot on the bed that is starting to orange peel so I have to sand that bed down to hopefully fix it.

I need to post more pics up of the body, it is currently sitting in color but thinking it may needed to be sanded some more. But I will post more on this tomorrow, going to be doing a different wheel option on it and instead on the back seats I'm going to put in a sub box.

If anyone can find me a hood for this truck that don't have that hood scoop on it, I would love it. I'm really not digging the hood scoop on it....

The body pic saying in primer is supposed to be the white base. Apparently I lost the interior tub and need a new one, anyone have one I can trade parts for?

Just curious but what are the first set of rims from? I was really liking that choice of rims but then you went with the after market ones. Like the colors, keep it going.

The first set of rims came from a 1:24 scale die cast mustang. I de chromed the aftermarket rims and painted them gun metal.
