Wow Wayne, that's a great looking project! What suspension system are you running? We might be getting one of these in the shop this year. Love the blue engine!

Thanks, I have been trying to keep the truck in budget but freight charges are killing me. I'd say 1/4 of the amount spent went to shipping and 1/8 to cross border duties :angry:
The paint is just Duplicolor Metalcast, although its very close to the Honda Dyno Blue Pearl I have chosen for the truck. The suspension is from AirRide Technologies. I'm very pleased with the fit.
I've been fabricating the little details instead of buying them to save money, so far, so good. I do wish I was better at bodywork though.

That Honda Dyno Blue is also a cool color. It's going to be a good looking truck!

The shipping and duties really blow. We know how expensive it can be just to ship small items up there.. can't imagine the bill for all the parts to build a truck!

Bodywork just takes time and patience... which you have built up waiting for your parts to arrive in the mail, no doubt!

I really like that era Chevy truck. That chassis looks clean enough to eat off of it. Best of luck with your project!!
