Colours look to have hit the mark. Sure can be tedious and precarious trying to color match well enough to please oneself. Good eye! Thinking about or does the body come with chrome work that runs the length of the paint border?

These are the updates I've been waiting for!

I might find some inspiration for the interior/body mounting system for suburban build.

Default 76 Suburban Build

Thanks SMC, for body mounting Iím just using the plastic TF2 body posts that came with the Burban.

A little more work done tonight. Nowhere close to perfect but I am filling in small gaps & reconstructing as I go anyway so once itís all said and done most if not all of the imperfections will not be seen.

Thank you smog, I really like these colors. The two tone is a perfect match but itís not too far off.

As far as the trim, I will be using stickers for the it. The blazer body from RC4WD comes with them, but with it being a 4 door now rather than 2 door I had to pick up another sticker sheet. Between the two sticker sheets I should be able to make it look the par.

I'm mostly interested in the interior design myself. Im planning on either hiding my battery under a false floor in the interior or inside one of the bench seats. I'm not sure what I'm doing for body mounting yet.

Iíll keep the interior design posts as recent as possible. I updated some parts of the floor yesterday, I will try and grab some pictures of it tomorrow. Iím currently figuring out where I can cram in all my electronics, but Iím hoping to use a Hobbywing fusion so itís one less thing to put under/in the interior somewhere.

I appreciate you following along!
