Finially got around to wrenching on this build again, made some pretty serious headway the last 2 days. It's a runner anyway, tomorrow is a paint day and finish wiring up the LED's.

Thanks for looking

Very cool! can't wait to see it painted and lit up!

What mini-torch is that? I've been wanting one, and I bought 2 cheapies from harbor freight and they were both 3' flame throwers from the start... You seem to use one a lot so I bet you know which ones are worth while.

This what I have and it's honestly 20yrs old, the newest model is built exactly the same. These torches are all stainless steel construction and US made, the company recently serviced mine and only charged me $22.00 with return shipping included.

The paint is done, took 2hrs to mask of the window frames and roof rack, what a PITA. The lines are nice and clean, I'm happy with the results. Now to install the included decals and misc scale items and finish up a couple small tasks and it'll be done. I will post pics of it once 100% complete.

HEY THANKS GUYS !


Well, Heres "BrassHole" !

I decided on a Aux 2s pack for the LED's, I still have to install them in the roof lights but decided on another day to that.
I even made a scale whip CB antenna, kind hard to see in the pics.

Sweet build....one of your best. Your workbench looks similar to mine when I am wrenching..total chaos, but organized.

Hey thanks Brian, It's a toss between this and my 6x6 for me ? Work bench; I reorganize and clean between each build, just finished 2 builds this one and a Ridgecrest I went through so it's extra messy this time. Time to tidy and get ready to start building my 1/6 Monster truck, it should have the most potental of pure epicness yet ??
