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.

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!
