I removed the exhaust stand pipes, they are inside the cab. The mudflaps are tied up too. The truck will be "decked" with 2 other Peterbilts eventually, as if they are being delivered by Active-USA new-truck transport co.
The right door displays the Active USA signboard.
The left door window displays a more appropriate company name!
The kit engine isn't a Caterpillar, but the real truck has one, since there is no available kit engine, I 'cheated' and made Detroitopillar or Catroit.
There are several things yet to be added, some touch up to be done, then I will take more photos.
Thanks for looking!

The shop-made wooden light bars will come later.
Along with the other parts needed for decking.

Excellent work as always. I don't know how you do it..Month after Month turning out these "beauties"
How do you outline your window gaskets (front/side and rear) what technique(s) or products do you use? Just curious...
I'll await to see you next creation.

How do I do it month after month? As of late it has been month-next month-month..
For the window gaskets I use either a fresh black Sharpie marker and/or flat black (acrylic craft paint from Wal-Mart or craft store).

Fantastic Tim , those mirror brackets look great , real lookin , also I've seen the the last piggy-backed truck had a homemade tail light bar bungied to the frame with real lame mud flaps..your flaps look better curled,,,again super cool build
The only trucks I've ever seen with the cheesey light and flap setup has been cab and chassis. But then again, Those are on a dealer lot, so the tractors probably have the flaps installed soon after arrival.
Once again, that's lookin real good, Tim.

Usually the cheesy flaps are on trucks that didn't have factory installed flaps.
