The bed you made is a work of art - much nicer than the stock all-styrene one. What is the gearbox/motor you are using? I was worried that there is so little room for one, but yours looks like a very compact unit.

The bumper is weathered and also the whole truck. It is practically finished.
Will take better quality pictures and post final results.
