        Years ago I went with the Chevy, as I had the 1/1 truck. Click image for larger version

            matt, Harry did a Reto Nascar Trucks build, a few years back. He posted pictures of the trucks. It's on HRW somewhere.

                    REL , I just need to figure out how to build the chassis for it , since the cab and truck bed are in two different pieces , so it is a future build . It is safe to say that at this point in my slot car career I have way to many sticks in the fire . I guess I need to do some prioritizing with what builds that I need to do

                    Glue the bed to the truck cab. Problem solved! I used a small flat rectangle styrene spacer between the bed and the cab. Then glued the cab/spacer/bed together. Added the running boards to the glued to the cab and the bed both. The body is now one piece!

                    That would be the first step.
