Absolute stunning truck.

In the outdoor shots, it could easily pass as a real truck.

You sir, have some serious talent

The ratchet strap holding the tailgate closed is awesome. It's the little touches such as this that sets your builds apart/above other builds.

The last time I built one of these turks, I filled in the screw holes w/ a clear resin then a few dabs of shoo-goo to hold the lenses in place. It wasn't a perfect solution but it looked much gooder than a silly screw ruining the view. Fantastic pics, you could easily fool people into thinking it's a 1:1 rig.

Regarding the rear lenses, how about epoxying a small clear plastic nubbin(a little post like deal-e-o) on the inside of the lens over the existing hole, then drilling a small hole for the screw in the nubbin and attach from inside of bed? I haven't had a TF2 in a while, I remember access to the LED holder was quite tight between the bed and wheel well so this may not be possible. Maybe more effort than it's worth.
Do you get tired of the accolades? To bad if you do LOL....truck looks great!

Drived it for C0 at the Team KNK TTC. Luckily reverses werenít counted. It doesnít turn well. And it got caught on things.

There are frickin' dead leaves in the corners of the bed!

The weathering/aging and detail of this build are off the scale.

Noob, you have skills man...

i actually saw a 1:1 whilst driving around in san diego a few days ago.

I’ve been out of the hobby for a couple years and I’m just getting back into cwarling again. Had to see what you’ve been up too, you never disappoint. Great build man, as always.

Just came across this thread. The weathering is superb. How did you do the bed and bumper? Sponge with paint?
