you can see that i have it apart, its at the point where i dont want to go to far ahead untill i get the top chassis rails painted .after this part the chassis will be complete and i dont have to go back to it.

this is also where all of the rear wiring is done. i also notice the fenders and rear lower section rubbed. so i had to bring each fender out 1mm.

a really nice guy suggested to make the tranny look like an engine. he sent pictures and info

the only thing i couldnt really do is get a true scale of what i need.also with all the accessories on the engine i coulnt really get a clear view.

so i went with what i can see and guest work. a thanks to the guys for the info and pictures. hopefully everybody like what i did

i had another set of tranny covers. added some heads, valve covers, screws,intake mantifold and some paint.

theres a front plate that goes on the front of the engine. if i can get picture of this area, i can probably come up with something

my 1st attentions where not to do the engine bay , as theres limited space due to the servo, but to give a little more detail ive added a little starter and a back plate.

i can still add exhaust and a tubo charger(on order) with tubes. i cant do anything with radiator or fan :lol:

so back to the compartment cover tomorrow

you saw that i had to tear down so i can paint the upper chassis and run wires from the rear. so what a great time to measure for the second truck.

i spent the morning measuring out everything for a second truck. the second one will be yellow, single speed instead of a 3 speed. this will give me all the room i need in the engine bay B). there will be more details in the second truck to.

back to the red one. ive order the mfu kit,which is light and sound kit. also had to order a few other parts.

in the mean time i can continue on the lower middle boxes. i saw a few more parts i can detail before remounting them

1st i went with silver, but na it didnt look right. so looked on the web for more truck and half of them were painted the color of the truck too. so i went with red ,and whit bars/handles. the white will break up the red. this will match the top white pin stripe on the truck

im dropping aline here ,saying thnx to the firemen, 1:1 builders and people who know these trucks

i had a few emails from ya's saying that the panel im making is either on older trucks or doesnt exist. ive been told the newer trucks have the plumbing behind the door panels. this is great to know

again thank you!
