Sorry, first off I don't have any "in progress" shots of this truck as this truck was built, rebuilt, and final assembly done several years down the road. So it was widely scattered build.

Ok, here's the skinny on this bruiser. She is built to replicate a truck I used to see running around Murfreesboro, TN. Simple Non-Metallic Blue paint with Gold Pinstripes. Beat up the bed a li'l bit and did mild aging to everything. Paint isn't polished to represent a daily driver. Engine I took creative license on. I took a li'l bit of this and that and made a sleeper 340 six pack engine to go between the rails. It is wired (first attempt) so it's not in perfect scale. Wheels and tires are from a Lowrider Riviera Kit. Someday I might redo the wiring and try and touch up the truck a li'l bit.

Looks really good Jason. I am particularly impressed with the way the bed of the truck turned out. It just looks USED.
