    Default Chevy!

    Rich (pardonmynoob) is such a nice guy. He sent me a box! of course it arrived upside down.



    Jack stands! I can always use more of them!

    Oh great! it was full of bubble wrap and a cardboard roll. Ha Ha nice one Rich.



    but wait! when I pulled the bubble wrap out to start popping it a truck fell out!





    YES! That's soo much better then jack stands! Even better then the bubble wrap!



    Hmmmm... So now what do it do with it?

    Smash it with a hammer!

    The roll was from the bubble wrap.. In case you want to re-roll it, hahaha

    You're both wrong! i'm painting it with blue tape!



    OK, not exactly. I did not want to muck up the beautiful bodywork Rich did so i covered everything i was planning on attaching Hot glue to.





    Ok onto the good stuff.

    I started with the tail gate to get wormed up. pretty simple. i boxed in the back side then attached it to a board and added sides.



    then i started on the cab. I'm only concerned with the back and roof of the body so first i cut out a section to fill in the back window.



    fits good



    i purposefully made it in such a way the filler panel was slightly inset to give me a step for the back window.



    next i built the back of the mold.





    then the sides were added to box in the mold and it was ready to pour.



    then i started on the bed sides. this began with filling in the fender openings.



    then parts were added to define the mold.



    then i debated what to do with the end of the fender behind the tail light. it was too small of an area to glue a piece in without risking damage to the body



    so i opted to use a bit of clay to fill in the void
