That's just about perfect. You might have to do under-axle leafs to get it to sit that low.

Quick dis-assembly..lol and a few pics for comparison...
I do believe it will work. By the time i add a frame but minus for the weight of it. Should turn out fairly close..

Next question.. any body stuff the MTZ with wider foam, ???
Thinking that may work to give them a lil fatter profile and fit the rim better..
Suggestions welcome please.

I'm not sure that would help much since the tread width is so narrow. Too bad there's no skinny slot wheels available, those tires are the perfect size.

How did I miss it wasnt a wrap around windshield I saw the colors and the trim and thought immediately it was yours with the comment you put about the 1:1 in your driveway lol. I guess we are together in the putting off projects club, I have drug home probably 5 other little projects or parts cars but havent touched my 63...but warmer weather I will this year. Just to make you feel better I'll drop in two pics, first is what truck looked like when the PO bought it......2nd is what it looked like when I bought it from him a month later.....

I'm a sucker for a step side..... Can I have it..lol. Purdy please..
Ive owned a lot of them, and the sad part is.. I parted out better trucks then whats around now a days.. .. I still love the wrap around windows more then the last three years. It just makes them look like their in motion.. The designers of the day should be very proud of the looks and achievements. No boxy Cube going on their.... Real steel.
Thanks for the share.. Great solid truck.

Thanks DougJ.. I may try and see if i can put some wider foam in and get them to fatten up some. The weight of the truck may distort them as they sit anyways. Might be a good idea.. I'll experiment with one a bit later.
I'm really liking the looks of the stockish height.

Small update. I'm still working on cab and playing with the lines. It's coming about though. Ready to cut the roof out and start forming.

OMG this is turning out to be possibly my favorite 2beers build ever! That cab and roof is amazing and the wrap around windshield looks awesome. Only thing is that you might have some difficulty making the actual windshield, seeing as it's such an awkward shape
