Started with the Revell kit with the Yellow and Blue trucks on the front, and everything just sort of snowballed into this crazy thing. There have been alot of changes, but it is still the stock body, engine block, interior (except the door panels), and the frame from the cab forward. Almost every kit part was modified in some way. Wheels are from an old funny car kit, and the kit moon caps were used.Tires from the Chevelle kit. Believe it or not, that is the stock bench seat in there, modified of course. I forget where I got the super charger and electric fan setup. The carbs are from another Revell street rod kit. The diamond plate is supposedly 1/100th scale!! :blink::huh: So many other things I am sure I am forgetting, Its been a long 4 months or so. Ask away.

That is something else! My hat off to you!

And you think 4 months is long for such an extensive custom build?

I'm lucky if I put a box stock kit together once every year!

Any underside pics, perhaps?

I would, but unfortunately it is way to fragile to flip over. I was nervous just taking it off the display base to get pictures. I wish I would`ve got pictures of the underside before I put the body on.

You've got it sitting on a glass top table. Just crawl underneath and shoot upwards! :P
