Just started this one since it's been sitting around awhile and I wanted a quick build. All box stock.

chassis painted, needs some more weathering and detailing.

black washed wheels

I left the interior in the molded gray and black washed it, I will dull coat it here soon.

and some color on the cab/bed. Still needs clear.

I'm not sure once the truck is painted should I use this tailgate sticker or not? I like a clean look but I kinda think the sticker will set the blue off, we'll see.

I would use the trim sticker! It really sets off the look!

Your headlights are more along the line of a 88-89 Silverado. The 90-98 trucks had two solid headlights, not split like you have.To tell you the truth, it's a conversion i'd do in 1:1 as the split on the 88 stay clear (glass), while the full on piece on the 90-98 eventually turns yellow (plastic). Other than that it looks awesome!

I must say...even though it's the wrong year grille headlights for this truck, this is the absolute best detailing of this grille that I have ever seen in my life! You have captured all of the depth and detail of the original 1:1 as I have never seen anyone else achieve. I would suggest a light swap but, it's too perfect to touch IMHO. :D

I have the same opinion, it is beautifully detailed.

Really? Wow, that's sad.

They made the later style grille also. My son has a dually like Jared's with the later model dash and the earlier model grille. I have a dually with the earlier model dash (that I hate) and later model (single rectangular) headlights/grille. Somewhere along the line, things got mixed up.

edit: after some research, I've determined that the grille in my dually is a '90 model. So, I guess it has the correct grille and dash after all.

The flat grille and quad glass headlamps were 88-89. In 1990 they came out with the composite, one-piece headlights, same flat grille. The recessed grille with the bubbled out center bar came out in 1994 and continued to 1998. The first dash was used from 1988-1994 and then the newer style dash came out in 1995. My dad has two 1994 K1500s that have the new-style grille but old-style dash.

I think if one were to fill in the lines on the headlights, the grill would look that much better! Although Jared, your grill looks amazing!
