  1. Thanks guys! Not much progress as of late. Been working on the 1:1 hot rods lately. I did decide on and build the engine/trans for it and got 2 grills from Iceman today. Engine is a LSX454 from Clearly Scale and the intake is a 3D printed piece from Shapeways. Need to decide on which grill I'm using, but I'm leaning towards the 81/82. Hopefully I get a little bench time this weekend.
  2. Cool sleeper! Nicely done too 👍
  3. Thanks guys! I did manage to get the chassis sitting on all 4 last night. The only issues I really had was that the rear axle is now sitting on the frame rails (had to sacrifice reality for lowness 😄) and I had to move the axle back about .100" to get it centered in the wheel opening. I added .100" x .100" square stock to the kit mounting area for the 4 bar mount (circled area). It has a slight amount of hot rod rake, but I'm good with it.
  4. Funny you should mention the previous generation C10...before committing to using the '84 I considered using the chassis on the AMT '72 GMC stepside. Possibly a future project.
  5. Thanks everyone. I am having a lot of fun with this one & I encourage you guys to give it a try. Just a minor update...After I cut the low hanging sections out of the interior tub out I realized I didn't really have any transmission tunnel. Not enough to work with anyway. So I decided I just replace the whole floor. I found an AMT 70 Monte Carlo floor pan in my junkbox so I grafted it in. I'm really happy with that. Almost looks like it was meant to be. I am off work today and am hoping to get it sitting on all 4 by the end of the day...stay tuned.
  6. It's going to be sweet! Now, if I could only decide on a color....
  7. This is a project I've wanted to do for a loooong time. A while back I bought a couple of chassis' from the Revell Foose '56 Ford pickup kit for just this purpose...low modern-styled pickup trucks. So, yesterday I started cutting stuff to see where it would lead me. I think this is gonna be a fairly simple/quick project and it looks like the wheelbase is going to be super close. I glued the radiator support in its stock location and it pretty much sits level on the frame and it's going to be LOW! I cut the bed floor out and after a little research I found that the kit rear wheel tubs
  8. Just finished this one up last week. It was a lot of fun to build and it completely changed from the original concept, but I'm pretty happy with it. It was going to be a green shiny paint truck with Pegasus chrome reverses and pinner whitewalls. The more research I did the more I found images of the JDM shop truck...I like that truck a lot. So the plan changed and it ended up like this. I built a few of these Datsun pickups back in the 70s, but they never turned out that well. I didn't want to get too crazy so it's basically out of the box with some paint detailing. I lowered the sus
  9. I saw that, but when I added it to my cart it showed out of stock/discontinued.
