Finally decided to start work on this kit. I was originally planning to do a custom street truck with it, but since walmart has quite a few of these, I'm gonna grab another one. So far I've got a rolling chassis, and the plow assembled... And surprisingly it fits right up to the front frame rails with no issues... This is gonna be weathered,and I'll be posting an update here tonight or tomorrow...

Thanks for looking and comments good or bad always welcomed...

I have the bed assembled, and the cancer areas grinded out. I removed one of the wood planks from the bed floor, and I'm throwing a tool box in the bed and a flashing dome light up top...

Thanks man... I can't either... Was gonna primer the chassis up and start painting that, but it's been raining off and on today and now it's looking like it's going to storm... I can at least work on the motor though...

Looking good so far, James!

Don't forget some ballast in that bed. Sandbags, cinder blocks, maybe an oliy old engine?

I've seen all of those in 1:1s used up here in the snow belt!

Thsnks Matt... I was thinkin some chains, and some other stuff in the bed would be a great added touch... An old used motor in the bed would be perfect...
