Hi

Paintjob is done...Dark Mica Blue Tamiya TS-64.

The camera didnīt show the correct color. On pic 4 you see the correct color that the human eye is seeing.

Hi

Updates...

The interior is flat white with grey flocking powder for the seat.

http://foto.arcor-online.net/palb/alben/13/6747013/6537303135633765.jpg

Wood decals fot the bed from Tauro.

http://foto.arcor-online.net/palb/alben/13/6747013/6133643164316430.jpg

The decals and the softer didnīt worked perfect. The result is not looking good...:rant:

http://foto.arcor-online.net/palb/alben/13/6747013/6530363865666235.jpg

I decided to make a new bed for this truck with ī0.10" evergreen plate.

Looks like a sequoia wooden bed on your Camino :-) The whole bed is done from single piece of wood.

I like the las try for the bed, but may be looks better if you make of real wood, i make my bed for a chevy 41 with sticks of wood from my doctor ofice, then aply weather.
If you need, send the pics, looking good anyway.

This is a great build. I particularly like the suspension work. Can you post a picture of the finished underside of the car. I'm curious about the driveshaft.
