Hi, this is my 1956 Ford F-100. It started off as the Ed Roth paint shop truck but I modified it a little.I started by lowering it a little and giving it side exhaust. Finally, I added flat black Corvette Racing rims. It was a fun model to build but I hate the way the doors fit.

Enjoy

Nice truck! I built that kit a while back, and the doors gave me fits too. It took a lot of filing and sanding to get them to fit.

Good job Christopher. I needed a magic wand to get the gaps right on my kit. I finally gave up and donated it to the local land fill after a long argument I had with mine. Glad to see you stuck with it and completed this one.

Made a couple changes to this truck. Fixed a lot of the gap issues with this model and trimmed the frame rails so that the bumpers are mounted flush with the body. I also changed the rims to ones that fit the trucks style better along with finding some exhaust tips that I added.

The makeover looks MUCH better! Wheels are more in tune with the truck, as you say.
