well it took all week to get the right hand rear door to work not sure i will ever do another crew cab. Perhaps if i had not tryed to make the rear doors open I would be less frustrated . Will be able to make faster progress now that the rear doors are done . I have noticed that the front of the rear fenders are not the correct shape but I am not too sure it is important to fix them. How many people will see the differance between the 1:1 and the scaler? Well sorry no pics this week as there was very little progress

well progress has slowed conciderably as i am in the detailed finishing part of this truck. did alot of work on the front bumper area got it alot better looking. As my 1:1 has a canopy I built on for this truck as well. Not to sure how to fix the flex issue but I have notice that alot of the leaf trucks do not run coils on the shocks so I am going to give that a try. okay so how about some pics
