After letting it dry for a couple days, I applied the color.

Firstly — that book is awesome! Secondly, the details on the front of that model is wonderful. And you’ve done an excellent job putting it together!

Can’t wait to see your painting process.

I couldn't find anything in the reference book that said that the pickups had anything but black wheels, but I did find that anything could be custom ordered as far as trim colors. I decided to paint them with some Mo-Pac Yellow. I think I got it close.. :D

Wow!  What great reference material to have on hand! Looking good.   ;)
One of the few items I've saved from High School Bob. I don't even have the rest of the 3 ring binder. ;D

Do you apply each color in separate subassemblies?

Jaime, I painted the chassis with a clamp attached to the rear axle which I'll touch up. The cab and bed were painted attached to a loop of tape attached to an old EXPO advertising card. I'll post pictures of what I did..
