Default Adding some scale realism to a Polycarbonate Body

Using a Proline 3408-00 SCT body on a Wroncho build. Decided against just applying decals tot the front. Added a grill and bumper - all from styrene. Also dropped the bed.

Next is adding a weathered look, kinda like a "Barn Find" appearance.

That looks really good Joe, reminds me of the '66 1:1 I had out in southern Cal back in the '80s . Do you have some pics of making the grill and bumper?
