Not much left to do. I got the interior done and top installed. Need to add a few more exterior parts (lights, etc), the rest of the electronics and I am done.

Ok so I got the pickup almost finished-got the running "lights", new baby moons and other things on there. Still running wires but when I am done it won't look too much different from these pics.

I love the pick up and am in lust with the van. You probably told us, but what scale is the van? And, why don't we have a little 'drooling' icon?

Some stuff is actually easier full scale.

Just needs a lot more space.

And more clamps.
Always need more clamps.
