First i just want to say that im new to this forum and so far it seems like a really good one, also im just now getting back into the hobby after not doing it for some years so a few things may be sloppy until i get into the grove again. Otherwise here is my progress on the 1965 Chevy custom, i haven't attempted a build like this so wish me luck.

Looks pretty good but tell me something in the real world how would you turn corners with it?

I dont have the front suspension done so the wheels dont have any chamber to them. Otherwise when it is done it will have a air ride set up like they do in the real world plus my frame is narrowed a bit

Very NICE start Justin, and BTW WELCOME to the forum, it is (IMO) the best on the Net by far!! Love the 65 one of my favorite Chevy trucks I even owned one a few years ago, look forward to your progress. Good luck on the project!! :D

Cool start. A little different with the duallie wheels.

BTW, just so you know, if your post disappears, check for it in the "On the Workbench: Pickups, Vans, SUV's, Light Commercial" section. Either location, I'll be watching this. Welcome to the forum.

I didn't even see half the pictures before because I was logged into my other job. This thing is even cooler than I thought. The 3 link is sweet, I love the faux dually wheel setup in the back, and the 409 is just perfect for this! One thing I would suggest on this...since you are putting so much detail under the bed. Please consider adding some kind of air tank and a train horn or at least a big truck horn under the bed. This thing is screaming for a "get out of my way" warning. It's your build but, I just think it would be soo cool.

thank you man. I couldnt think of a more different engine to put in it than a 409, i love those things. I have revamped it a little with scratch built race style vaulve covers and a deep sump pan. And oh yeah of course. after i get the full air ride(bags tanks and battery's) im going to add another tank and a dual air horn setup. also im going to leave the floor primarily open and set it up to where i can take it off and on.

409 so far. starting to think there is to much silver (engine block is black) so im thinking that the valve covers and block will end up painted the accent color of the truck which will be a medium orange
