Performance is having their Model Car Show in Feb., so am planning to build a Theme pick up truck for the Contest.
Plan to use an Old Monogram Lemon Crate kit for the build. It should be challenging, just to fit things together.


  
So thanks for lookin.

Nice one Bruce.

I don't know about this particular kit, but of the old Monogram kits I have built, they seem to have pretty good fit.

Well, finally, here are some updates. Hope to use some of these.

Filled in some of the sink marks, then cut out the single exhaust.



Cut the front suspension apart and will flip the axle over to give the front end some lift.

Going to use a Ford 9" rear end, so cut the leaf spring off and grafted it to the rear end. Then made some coil springs and plates. Also plumbed in the brake lines.




Also plan to use Modelhaus chrome steel wheels and AMT slicks and front tire.

Next to work on the motor.

Good work Bruce. I like the rear axle brake tubing. Neat.

Cool stuff! I wonder if the body/fenders will look stock. We'll keep watching.

Nice detail work, Bruce. I like your use of the punch - they make perfect circles out of plastic or beer can easily.

Plan to keep the fenders and body pretty stock. The doors open and would be very difficult to chop. Also, this is a late 50s or early 60s Gasser.

Primered the frame and put in the rear end and raised front suspension.


Sanded the tires with a # 11 deep socket and 150 grit sand paper, then test fit.

Decided to add a belt chrome line around the cab, to follow the hood line.

Nice work Bruce and I agree with Buck on the wheels. It will look great with chromed steelies.

Thanks. Shot satin black on the firewall, then primer. Just put about 4 coats of Boyd's Smoothster Yellow on and she's in the dehydrator to gas out.
