    Nice resto-mod style build. Classic, with a few modern updates. Nice work.

    Whoa -- super nice -- Looks like it could be sitting in a dealership, cleaned up and ready for sale. Love the detail of the little bit of rust on the unchromed part of the stack. Johnny

    Thank you. The resin cab was supplied by eBay vendor 2007frontier. He shows it as still available. The casting was the entire cab and hood assembly, all in one. The heaviness of the casting made separating the hood from the cab impractical. I did put an engine under the hood, so to speak but only detailed the lower half since the upper half would never be seen. I did take the time to make a 6V71 Detroit-Diesel by cutting away two cylinders on an 8V71.

    How do you display your rigs?

    I'm using the same ones. I like that they're easily stackable.

    I finished this one last month, while I was off work. I used Moebius duals and steers from singles pack. Scratchbuilt the mudflaps and stack. I tried a little engine detailing, modified an Alaskan Hauler headache rack, and installed an MTB swan.

    Nice work. Where did you get the cab and what engine did you go with?

    William Geary from Too Many Projects has this cab. I bought both the Chevy and also the GMC from him. He is good to work with.

    Started to work on the cab........ I'm pretty happy with the way the cab sits...I used the rear cab support as a reference guide as compared to 1:1 trucks as well as the position of the front wheels in the wheel wells. I did have to do some modifying along the way.... On the engine, I went with an aftermarket, pre-wired distributor and a scratch built oil filler tube riser to clear the coolant expansion tank piping. In doing this , the cab did not want to sit down properly with the cab hinges attached as the bottom was making contact with the distributor and the back , vertical portion was in contact with the riser. To correct this, I raise the flat piece that the seats attach to aprox. 2 mm. and redid the vertical back piece with a very thin piece of flat styrene slightly angled out more at the bottom once cuts where made in the kit piece. This is the bottom side of the cab. You can see were I made cut outs for clearance for the air intake pieces, the distribtor and oil filler tube riser. Once everything was were I wanted it , I boxed the cut out area in.

    It's amazing how rugged a simple box can look. 😁 Looks like a particularly rough ride but at least it's got a roomy sleeper.

    Really love the clean and purposeful, but still classy look you got from this one.
