A little #sema build update. Brown Sugar had some custom light fixtures added in the camper, some wiring done, made the taillight and front grill lenses. Tested the wiring and got a few outside photos. Waiting for some wheels so I can modify the correct set. Still a ton to do!!! IMG_6688.jpgIMG_6690.jpgIMG_6695.jpgIMG_6691.jpgIMG_6685.jpg

Wow...took way longer than I would have ever thought trying to get these awesome #3dscaleparts custom resin wheels to fit the #brownsugar build. They were perfect, but the offset was a bit off and I couldn't use the resin rims. So I copied what I did with the DIVCO milk truck build. I took a set of adjustable offset MST wheels, modified the fronts by eliminating the Tamiya spindle - found that the TF2 mounting posts fit perfectly in the knuckles. Made some reducers for the MST wheels, added a ring of the foam that comes with them to the outside of the resin centers and they fit. A bit tight, and I haven't checked steering clearance yet, but they do work!!!! #rivercityrods #semaIMG_6743.jpgIMG_6728.jpg90138614_619108241981795_730403839164809216_o.jpgIMG_6730.jpgIMG_6731.jpgIMG_6732.jpgIMG_6729.jpg

Thanks for the awesome comments guys!

This amazing build that #rivercityrods built for the 2019 #sema show has been a challenge....from matching the wheels to the cab interior!!! It's close to being a wrap. May do a test drive later tonight. The cab's interior was even a challenge as the very unique upholstery is no where to be found and the seats and dash had to be scratch built. I do like where its gone though, pleased with the body work, not perfect but it will work. The camper interior was a PITA....but made me appreciate the work even more that the team at River City Rods pulled off! A few loose ends, some tweaks and it will be done.IMG_6932.JPGIMG_6814.jpgIMG_6880.jpgIMG_6819.jpgIMG_6917.jpgIMG_6791.JPGIMG_6798.jpgIMG_6930.jpgIMG_6933.JPGIMG_6911.jpgIMG_6871.jpg

Love the interior lighting and how it shows all the other interior details off.

Simply amazing! With all the interior details, it's really difficult to tell the scale version from the 1:1. Just amazing!!!

Well, 10+ hours later and the #SEMA #brownsugar #camper tribute build is in color. Not perfect, I missed getting one color accurate. Huge thanks to #austenstoll (Stoll"s Auto Body) and the #rivercityrods team for advice and assistance in getting the colors correct for this project. Need to modify the custom wheels for a correct offset so temp set is still on it. Now for a ton of detail work and odds and ends! Windows in the camper are just blanks for paint purposes. Need some sunlight, these photos do not do it any justice! Thanks to Jeff Romp and Great Lakes Body & Paint for lending me his gear and help!View attachment 34342View attachment 34340View attachment 34341View attachment 34347View attachment 34346View attachment 34345View attachment 34344View attachment 34343View attachment 34339View attachment 34338


This is amzing , those details are crazy!
