Default Building a new chevy stepside this time.

Well since I have a 1:1 stepper I figure it's only fitting to build some smaller versions. I started a clod based one but lost out on the beds that were being produced for a short time. Around that same time I grabbed this model and figured I'd get to a micro one eventually also. Well the 1/10 fizzled, so the micro takes over

I scooped up someone else's project to use. Consists of a nearly new trekker with a fungi leaf frame, rc4wd beadlocks and boggers and we set off.



Minor trimming to the inner fenders to get to the level I want



Started to build the box. Lots more work needed here, the kit falls pretty short on bed details.



Made a front cab mount


Mocked up to realize the bed was not matching the wb



Started a minor bed extension


Finished filling the sunroof hole


Minor floor hole to clear the motor



Other bed side extended



Latest mockup



More to come soon.

Well this one was totally on the back burner to finish my crew cab build, but I drug a bucket of parts with me to my bro in laws for turkey day and had a little spare time to hack together another runner.

The paint was not cooperating the week prior to thanksgiving, and I still have not built the step for the other bedside, but I figured, ah heck with it, letís make it go, then I can pull it back apart and paint it up.

It was basically this way for months now minus the red on the cab.



I popped in some windows, the interior with a bit more trimming, an mg-90s, and just abandoned the receiver to the bed for time crunch purposes.



Overall it works totally awesome.



Even enough daylight to get it outside













Unpacking today damage report

The hood corner did not prefer the 35 degree temp and a few tumbled...







Now to pull it apart and finish it up.
