    So this is a build thread for my build off build.. Build; just for good measure.
    I am building a 1977 Ford F-250 with as accurate as I can with the limited tools I have; I am also trying to make it as inexpensive as possible.
    So I have a dewalt drill 2 speed transmission that I have cut a set of gears out of. I have been building a body out of scrap aluminum sheet metal. I use hot glue to build a mock up then I use screws, epoxy, and construction adhesive.
    I will be using 1/2 inch box steel bar that I will cut in half to create C channel. It's coming right along.

    It's because your using Tapatalk. Just click on the 3 dots in the top right corner and then click on web view. You'll be able to view the picture this way.

    Super scale build!

    Okay I read about it an seen the pics. Thanks btw #Antho11
    I was a nervous wreck when I did my plastic jeep body. An I do bodywork for a living. An aluminum body is a sick idea an awesome. I'm brainstorming how that would be. I know you didn't ask for my opinion, but as far as expense. I've learned an seen many times you get what you pay for an "you gotta pay to play"
    I wanna do a drill motor but I'm no gear head to that extent.
    Awesome truck man seriously, keep us updated.

    I'm not good at finding the threads, much less maneuvering through rcsparks

    That's awesome, I really think the kinda rough dinged nature of the body adds a ton of character
    to the build, it brings me back to high school, i had a 78 crew cab that i had rescued from a junk yard, ... man how i miss that truck.

    Before my DUI I had a 1977 short box f100 and I loved that truck. When I get my license back, I'm going to buy this king cab around the corner from my house.

    I actually just crashed my 78' shortbed stepside, I painted it an drive it to school. An ran it through a fence an honestly ran through a telephone pole. It wrinkled the entire body.

    Just before I sold my truck, I do men the day of.. I was driving it like an animal, and went off the road into a ditch that I jumped. I must have been three feet in the air. Truck was fine, but the whole body shifted forward about 2 inches.

    It's crazy how it all happens. Yesterday a man flipped a propane truck in my curve and it killed him. Spilt propane an had him trapt. Sad way to go.
