Really disappointed in this one. Started out good, thought I did well on the engine and chassis, then moving on to the body and interior I started having problems and messing up. Could not get the paint right, it was supposed to be the same light blue for the interior and body, but the light blue just would not stick to the body so I went with a dark blue and I don't think the two blues match very good. I either lost some parts or they were missing from the kit, had no rad hose and a piece that was supposed to be there to hold the front bumper. I carried on anyway. I didn't want all the extra stuff for the snow plow so left those off. I had a GMC like this in the past and tried to make it like that one. Don't know what happened with the mirrors, never could get them on straight.

Those mirrors are a real pita to get set right. That truck has some assembly issues but can look decent and yours looks good. 

Thanks.

Great looking truck. I would never try building those mirrors myself but they look good here. Sometimes it just seems like a kit is fighting you all the way, but you overcame this one. 

Thanks. I could not figure out how to orient them to look right.

The two blues look good together in my eyes.  This kit is a challenge and you did a great job.  

Thanks.
