It is a build I have wanted to do for probably 5 years now… I just have never had the means to do it. As you follow along keep in mind, my skills are quite limited compared to most of you all. If you have pointers, feel free to share them.

First things first, I ordered this body in January and it just showed up yesterday (July 22nd). Needless to say, I can be a patient man if needed haha

Getting some front lights sorted out… I’m torn on cleaning up the grill too. Should I even attempt this or get a winch to cover it up? 🤔

Ok got both sides carved out pretty well. Now to scuff the whole thing and wash to prep for primer… that should help me see any other imperfections… right? Haha keep in mind people I only kinda know what I am doing here. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Bear with me on the slow progress… I got the side marker lights removed and sanded smooth. Also sanded most everything else and shot it with another thin primer coat. Thoughts so far?

still looking for a chassis for this to go on haha
