  1. Great work bringing this one back to life Tom!!! The gauge cluster looks fantastic!!!
  2. Thanks Carl !!! I am glad you like it!!! Will be posting more progress later this week.
  3. Thanks David!! 👍 I tried to get it as close as possible as the reference pics I am using. I have seen some other custom builds where the extent of the back door is larger but I liked the back door being a bit shorter that the front one. It still needs some work inside and some finishing details but I am very happy with the results so far.
  4. Thanks Tom!!! I just started vacations this week so hopefully will be posting more progress soon. 👍
  5. Just some small progress... I was able to get some bench time today and casted a few chassis for the other options I plan to build. Hope you like it and thanks for looking!!
  6. Thanks Tom!!! I am glad you like the progress so far. I just send you a message regarding the casting. 👍
  7. Great work so far Jason!!! Like the details on the engine and the body colors look great!! Thanks for sharing!!! 👍
  8. Thanks Andrew!!! The Chrome Rims you see in the first picture are the Moebius# MOE1010 set. Those are Big Rig wheels but with Pegasus 23" low profile tires that fit like a glove on them. Still have to notch the chassis and cut the bed, but the low profile tires will give me more room to set the stance I want without sacrificing too much of the bed.
  9. Thank you all for your comments, I really appreciate it!!! I have a few ideas for the frenched tail lights so hopefully I can post more progress soon. Also I have to change the look of the grill to go along with the whole custom theme... Again, thank you all for your comments and thank you for looking!! 👍
  10. This is also another project that I have been working on for more than a year now. Unfortunately most of my stuff got ruined after Hurricane Maria hit us a few years ago so ended up working in a small table on the living room with was left of my workshop. This kit has some cool options for a custom build so I decided to go for a convertible look and chopped the top. I opened the trunk, added drip edges, some ribs on the trunk lid and completely erased the tail lights openings to add some frenched tail lights going forward. Build some custom panels for the trunk so I can get some powe
  11. This picture is the reference of what I am trying to accomplish, but without the side trim. I like the color scheme but really haven't decided yet. Here is some progress of the Short Dually bed. These are old pics, just part of the actual progress of the build. I have two sets of rims that you will see below, but still have to cut the bed wheel wells to set them in the right stance. For the dually I want the "bagged" look, just a hair above ground. I have to cast the cab first and then cut the inner fenders, this way I will not sacrifice the original cab I will use for t
  12. Thanks Roy!! It is definitely hard to set some time for the workbench... Too many things going on and between work and family sometimes one can barely make it happen. I have been working on this one for more than a year now, so hopefully I will be able to finish it soon.
  13. Great Job on this one brother!!! A ton of work to get there... but really rewarding in the end. Once all is glued and painted sometimes is hard to tell how much work was put into it... 👍
  14. Thank you all for your comments!!! I am glad you like it so far!!! Dan, Thank you for moving the post to the correct forum. I apologize, I didn't realize I was on the wrong spot when posting...
  15. Started this project about a year ago so I will share a couple of the progress pics up to the stage it is right now. I wanted to build three versions of this one so I extended the chassis with the supports to be able to use either a stepside, a fleetside or a short bed dually. I already casted the chassis and the interiors. The dually bed is in progress but for this one I will only cast the wheel fenders to be attached to a donor fleetside bed. The cab is almost done so hopefully will be able to cast it while on vacation next month. Is not perfect but I am very happy with the resul
