It actually is a really nice kit. I had gotten it from a friend of mine from another site and when i saw it i just couldn't resist getting it. So far it all seems to be going along well .

Thanks. Id like to see the one you built. Not sure if its cool to post it in this thread, but id have no problem with it. I am thinking of going for a tuner type pick up theme. Probably to look like the cars from TopSecret Performance. Still undesided.

Just a small update here today. I am still working on the body and should have it done and ready for paint in the next couple of days. I also desided to stick with my idea amake it a TopSecret Performance tuner truck and already started working on making a spoiler from an old credit card.Ill start working on the frame and supention as soon as i get my Pegasus wheels and tire. Sorry for the not so great pics, they are from my cell phone.

 

Thanks for looking.

 That's an unusual choice, but you've pulled it off brilliantly.
