Thanks guys, this one stalled for a bit. The aftermarket decals I got were a bust. The were printed with the ink on the lightest setting I think. They were so see through and the rubbed off very easily even with a light coat of sealant. Very disappointing.

But I found another kit on eBay and paid too much for it and now I have a very good set of kit decals again and even better the blue is the correct darker color so I masked it off and repainted the blue to the darker shade.

I assembled the interior and the engine and have the body and chassis mated so I can fine tune the ride height. So it's coming along. It isn't my best work but I am happy with it.

Paint must've been a challenge. Coming along okay!

Great work, Mitch. Where did you find the front air-dam and rear spoiler?

Those parts are in the Air Fix kit shown at the first of the thread. Those parts and the decals are the ONLY good things about the Air Fix kit.

No, its done. Its in the finished section.

I bought a 2001 F150 with a ton of miles to be my work truck. I am overhauling the engine right now and I am redoing the interior so this summer is taken up with that project. I probably won't be back to models until fall.
