REALLY easy here. Glue the bed together. Just cut a section off of the front part. Or, make perfect measurements, and cut the bedsides before you glue it together. I've done something similar.

Or if you like I make the short bed parts in resin. I made a corrected frame thats not one piece like the AMT kit. It has seperate suspension parts. I also do the bed with or without the trim.

Sorry for the quality. Camera is getting old. Anyway here is the frame that I corrected an now cast in resin for the 67-72 Chevys and GMCs along with a shortbed fleetside. Last picture is the short stepsid bed.

Wow.
just add a hood and grill...
Where did that crew cab come from?
I fit a 'Silverado' frame under my '72 GMC. Does anyone do a interior tub to get rid of the molded in seats? Or, I guess, know of a suitable interior to swap into the cab.

Im working on a better interior for this kit as well with the seats removed from the floor. I will be casting it in resin as well with the full bench and the bucket seats seperate. Im also working on the long bed stepside mold, the 1967-68 cab mold, a better crewcab mold and a more detailed longbed frame like my shortbed frame.

Thats cool.
I do like the line of the earler hood better.
