This is a cab that I had laying around for quite some time so I decided to build one for my daughter.so I took her to a local truck show so she can get some ideas of what she wanted she picked out a John Deere tractor that's how we got the theme of this truck .I have to tell you this is one of my favorite builds.it is the first thrck I've ever built with any of my kids we had a lot of fun building this truck together so I wanted the truck to have a great paint job And I am not deathly not a good painter So I took the body to Brian.me and my daughter gave him some ideas of what we wanted and he took it from there I will post some pictures of the finished truck the first chance I have thanks

What size are the rivets? The smallest on the site, 0.4mm?
