Well, the Starliner is in the pond getting stripped. I just didn't like the signwriting..( I have cunning plan to do it another way ) but as a slumpbuster I thought I'd build a Gasser.

Ive Googled 50 Chev Pickup Gassers and found nothing...So this is all from the imagination...wish me luck.. :-)

Excellent! This looks very good to me, always nice to see more Gassers. There will never be enough of them. Perfect stance and nice wheel choice. I will be watching this one.

Oh, BTW if you're interested, you could join in the Gasser & AWB Community Build.http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=61569

Decided to open up the drivers door on the cab. I scratch-built the doors inner structure and the cab door surround.

This build is looking great. I am loving it. The stance is perfect in my opinion. Love the detail of the door panel and vent you have done.

More than likely, your thread got moved to the "Pickups,Vans,SUVs and Light Commercial" workbench section of the forum. Nice work on the vent and inner door structure!

Since I will display with the door open , I needed to make hinges etc. ( They are none functional..but have given me enough confidence to try it for real next time.)

I then fabricated the passenger door, jambs complete new floor and internal structure of the body.

Got the body panels painted, and started the weathering.

Just an initial mockup here, nothing glued yet.

Im pretty happy with the direction this ones heading. A long way to go yet. :-)
