Welcome to yet another primered appearance of The Construction Zone. We hope that by seeing more unfinished rides in the raw you'll come up with some new ideas of your own to complete the ride that's collecting cobwebs in your garage. We can definitely use your help to get the word out that every show-stopper was once a primer and guidecoat-covered beast with mods galore. If you have a ride that's not quite done but makes you want to shave, suicide, or chop something every month, then peep out the photos we use here for The Zone and snap some of your own. Send them to us here at Mini Truckin' c/o The Construction Zone, 774 S. Placentia Ave., Placentia, CA 92870-6846. You may find yourself among the few, the proud, the unpainted. We wish you the best of luck and ingenuity until your own ride is painted and taking Best Of trophies. Now sit back and check out the newest inductees into The Construction Zone.

Somehow we've managed to get our ducks in a row for the third time to produce yet another Construction Zone special Issue. Once again, we're devoting a special section to six of the wildest trucks around. Follow along as we show you some of these cool unfinished rides. We hope these killer customs are completed soon, but until then, we'll just throw them out there so you can get some insane ideas of your own. It's our hope that by seeing these customs, you'll bring your own project just a little closer to completion, a little closer to being featured in the Construction Zone, or finally finishing that long overdue project that's been collecting dust and spiderwebs in your garage for so long.
