        Thanks Leo! If it turns out anywhere near as nice as your M37 I should be happy with it

          Inspirational!

          You both have been keeping me at it on my dually build!
          Soon as I think I have it figured out you two get my gears turning even more!

          Keep up the great work!

            Thanks Weeezy! That's great to hear my truck has been some inspiration for you. Post up a build thread of your dually, we'd love to see it

                Wow, nice truck Weeezy! What have you got planned for it? Are you going for scratch built dually fenders or something else in mind? Full interior too?

                  Interior time…
                  Started with getting the roof lights wired and the layingflat against the inside of the panel so I could keep the headliner/overheadconsole as far up as possible. The layered console houses the CB and storage compartments and is painted to match the interior colors. The cargo light and dome light are on their own circuit so can be operated at any time regardless of what other lights are or aren’t in use.
                  The main interior pieces will be four panels. Rear extended cab portion, main seating area/dash portion and two door panels. The rear portion will bolt in with two small studs through the cab back wall and will be invisible when the truck is together (the two small pillar trim pieces will cover up the wires running down the rear corners of the cab and keep everything neat and tidy). The door panels will be glued to the inside of the body and the main piece will then slide up and in and sit on the “ledge” of the rear piece while being bolted in through the original dash mount holes in the firewall. Should be plenty strong and secure anyway.
                  The seat as noted earlier is pieced together Land Cruiser. The door panels are layered flat stock with the matching walnut applique and detailed with paint, chrome pen and sharpie. In the pic the door panels are just taped to the interior tub for visual reference. The dash has the same walnut applique on the gauge cluster and passenger side trim panel. Still working on finding someone to produce a really nice and correct Silverado emblem for it. I added accelerator, brake and parking brake pedals as well as a trailer brake controller to the lower portion of the dash. I cut the center of the steering wheel out and went with the “2wd” version (according to the factory brochures) just to be a little different and I like it more than the generic multi-model four spoke wheel. I used the hub cut from the old center and layered styrene for the depth affect and detailed with the walnut applique and a clean little bowtie emblem on the horn pad. I also added 4mm to the length of the column so the wheel wasn’t so close to the dash. I think it looks much more in proportion this way. Grabbed a transfer case shifter from the parts bin. Looks to be Axial to me but really doesn’t matter much…it fit :P
                  Once the interior is in the front inner fenders can be final fitted and the body bolted on. From there it’s onto some more details for the box, wiring in the lights and getting it fitted. Possible light at the end of the tunnel!

                            Great job buddy, I'll need to replicate your door panel design, as the Blazer looks rather dull without them.IMG_8213.jpgIMG_8214.jpg

                              Wow Troopy. That interior is impressive. Get job. Did you make a thread about your Blazer build.

                                Thanks Rickleo. Nope there's no thread for my Blazer build, as it is the rtr from RC4WD. I just like to personalise my rigs, but honestly, this rig of "25aniv" really blows my mind. The attention to detail is astonishing. His building craftsmanship is some of the best I've seen so far. It's a pure joy to watch his progress.
