Further Description/Back Story I wanted to build a custom truck, that would test my skills, I had never used styrene, so I used it for the cab back and front of box. Then I cut the bucket seats out and built a bench seat, and used an old t-shirt as a seat cover. Then I got into the paint, I used thin strip of styrene to act as the body trim. I also made a sliding rear window, because I wanted to make a mag mount cb antenna, so I needed a place for the antenna cable to get into the cab, I used cd cases for the window, and styrene for the window trims.
