My Splash Project

Alright, so it's not a REAL truck project. More like a miniature truck project. I got a 93 splash model and a 95 XLT model (to use for interior and spare parts). I got them for a few bucks on eBay...

here is the real thing...

There's money in this?! I can't imagine doing many more of these...takes way too much time and patience!

thanks though, I am working pretty hard on it.

I thought about doing that with mine since I use to build models but they dont make my body style.

Looks like your doing a good job.

Your exhaust tip would look awesome if it came out through the fender.
