FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY MIKE McGEE

FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY MIKE McGEE

June the eternal month that signals summer is ramping up and with that we have Mike who shows us how conversions of visions can produce an outstanding rig!  

 

 

 

 

 

Mike’s build info:

Well first of I’m a huge square body truck fan this build was an early Sean Saley build as seen in all matte black. I had a vision of what I wanted to do on one of these for a while and when this came up for sale why build when the work (hard work) is already done so a deal was struck and the tear down began:

  • Ladder bar setup on rear down to a narrowed diff
  • Ladder bar setup on front as well as narrowed diff
  • Custom drive shafts
  • Custom all metal chassis
  • Full skid plates
  • 1.9 RC4WD wheels with Falken tires
  • Full styrene dash and vinyl wrapped door panels and headliner cloth seats
  • Custom metal front bumper
  • Grille custom center
  • Handmade aluminum outside mirrors
  • Aluminum emblems
  • Hole in hood filled
  • Painted in Testors lacquer black and flaming orange four coats color and five coats clear

    I’m a firm believer in giving builder credit, I took his vision and then put my spin on it. I am in the process of another build that is quite the opposite of this build.
