    Perhaps maybe a Tan paint with a black bedliner two-tone?

    Looks really good, I thought it was a 1:1 in the first pic! I like that the axles aren't very wide and there's tire under the fenders.

    Thanks. I didn't want the wheels to stick out too much like those truck with the huge offset wheels. Wanted to keep it looking as scale as possible

    Purchased a Tamiya weathering kit yesterday. Put a little rust and ugly on Ole Heavy. Plus got a set of these sweet Va license plates on the way[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Took Ole Heavy out to get some sun yesterday but I think the sun got me lol. It's too dam hot!!! It was a fun drive while it lasted. If you notice Ole Heavy got some new cab roof lights now. Got them from Harry's Wheel Shop on Shapeways. I think they look great.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Did a little work on Ole Heavy. Got the headlights and marker lights colored and installed. Used a yellow and orange Sharpie to color the marker lights inside then sanded and weathered the outside to give them a used look. Also tinted the headlights yellow. Why?....... Because I could lol. Really like how they turned out[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Been a while since I posted any progress on my Ole Heavy build. Got a Facebook page "Square Headz RC" that I've been trying to maintain and it takes a lot of my time. Some progress made but still a long ways to go. I painted the wheels to match the body. Changed out the tires to Rc4wd 1.55 Mud Slingers. Don't know how they preform yet but I really like the look. Decided to drop my scratch built Cummins turbo diesel under the hood. Redoing the shock locations to look more period correct. And made a canvas cover for the bed. Still have to redo the drivetrain, finish the engine bay, and build the interior. Real happy how Ole Heavy is turning out but like I said still a long way to go.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
