Thanks for the comments guys. It’s slow going but any progress is good progress right? Built my fuel cell today. I’m gonna work on mounting my tank and compressors next.

Just a few more updates, made some tiny mounts for my sway bar endlinks. Also knocked out a tank and compressor mount. The last picture is just detail work to my bag plates.

Nice.... have to ask what model kit you started with, the AMT is a '69-'72 (depending on the grill), I thought only promos came as '68.  The side trim around the wheel well is the big difference for the molded on trim.  BTW I own a '68 Long Bed, survivor.

Beautiful work. The air system looks good. Air the compressors from Shapeways? I think I have the same but I’m looking to make some Zeniths.

Thanks and yes I got them from shapeways. I think 3d model specialties is who I got them from.

I’m not sure on the kit. I bought it as an old built up. I know mpc has a 68 kit.

So is most of the parts printed in resin by a resin printer. or are they cased in resin like the compressors and diff. 

The compressors and rearend are printed.

I'm watching "Texas Metal" as I am writing this . You are doing an excellent job. I love the wheel and tire choice. I have a 72 under way, where I shortened the bed. I'm leaning more towards a simpler model, utilizing mostly kit parts.  After looking at your build, I have to get back to mine.

A lot has happened since I last posted. I’m not as active on the forums anymore. You can follow me @lowlifescale on Instagram if you’re on there. I post updates pretty frequently. Here’s some updates. I’ve been doing a lot of scratch work. Interior and engine bay is pretty much done. I also finished up the floor pans.

Appreciate all the scratch-building you are doing!  You want better exterior door handles?

Thank you. Yea, those door handles would be a big help. Do you know someone that makes them or have a tip for making my own?
