small update-finally figured out a way to secure the bed to the cab and I can still remove it for finishing work. Also made a transition piece between the cab and bed to better integrate the two.

god that looks horrid, you should send it to me :P haha just kidding, it looks great, interior is great, that transition piece is subtle yet adds detail to it.

Ha! I'll get right on it and send it ASAP :)
Appreciate the feedback. Yes the transition piece is kind of hard to pick out but it will make a big difference when it comes time to paint-

Since the pickup bed is open, I wanted to detail the Tamiya gearbox to look more like a flat 4 vs 540. Went at it last night and part of today. I know the stacks might be a little over the top but in the end I think they'll work. Need to finish the exhaust otherwise the neighbors will complain. :)
Next is the interior-then blast the chassis-....

Thanks! No-actually it's a cobbled bunch of parts stuck onto the Tamiya gearbox.

Ha! a bidding war-
I am not sure the exhaust looks finished but I am leaving it as is because I am not sure what to do and I'm working on other parts. Thanks for the input!
