I'm really diggin' that canoe! I have enough of these in my stash that I'm going to attempt a long box one of these days. Any better shots of the new springs?

Looks great and this should be a nice one when done! Love the beefier axles and springs and the plain look suits this build perfect.

Any measurements on the bed modifications? Is the rack made from round or square tubing?

Thanks!

Thanks for the shots of the springs, Dan! I'm going to attempt to make those for one of my builds. B)

I was wondering if the reference to the "Fall Guy" GMC was going to pop-up. Seeing your extended bed made me think of that immediately - and now I'm inspired, since that's one of my favorite TV cars as well.

Nice work!

Thanks, and I was wondering about that. I know the truck on the show was a long bed (with cool custom tool bins behind the cab). I'm thinking some Photoshop work with some decal paper will have a proper Fall Guy truck without spending over $100 for the kit, eh? ;):D

And yes, thanks for the detail shots. I had a '78 K5 Blazer years ago, and I now have an old glue-bomb Blazer kit my BIL gave me - somethin's gonna happen! :D

Hey Dan

From where you get that diamond plate on bed rails?

Leafs look great (No not Toronto) :lol::lol::lol:

I've always owned 8' Bed trucks (8' drywall,8' 2"X4"s)

Shortbeds are for beach cruzers

Looks great so far

Cheers

That's a good looking truck you got there. Did that kit come with those door panels molded in it? They aren't the right style for that model. that's a late 70's style door. That is a Good looking truck though, cant wait to see it when its done.

They didn't change the dash, either. Interior stayed the same all the way through.
