2001 replica silverado
Posted by dart72 on Monday, December 9, 2013 5:21 PM

Hey guys, its been ages since ive posted. im slowly getting into building again but having totake a break as all the moneys headed for xmas, but i figured id share my plans for my big build with ya's! This past summer I bought myself my first truck, yes all the hard work does pay off! I bought a 2001 regular cab short box chevy truck. it is a very unusual truck to see up here in Centeral Ontario. Mainly because most are 4x4 or extended cab. mines the oddball and it does good at it! haha 

heres a picture of it in a field i was working in this past summer, i had spent about 4 hours the day before outside washing and waxing it then i took it to the fields!

My plan is to take the 99 chevy kit, cut it down to a single cab, then begin the other things. To replicate it completely i need to rework the exhaust (as ive got a new tailpipe and a thrush glasspack) make the front hood deflector, the side deflectors, the mud flaps, the rims, the soft cover, and im hoping that i can find a set of resin taillights as i have "European" type lights. I will have to customize the interior to have the 3 seat bench instead of the 2 pass. w/console, and i will have to print a bunch of custom decals, as you can see my earnhardt stickers fly proud in the windsheild and i have the big "CHEVROLET" across the gate so ill have to make that as well. if you guuys have any tips, tricks, advce or comments towards the build or the truck they are welcome!

cheers
