that truck was an inspiration for what i wanted to do with my 1:1 379, but I had to trade it in before my dreams came true. The truck will look sharp. ANyone wanting to see it can go to www.legacysleeper.com and click on the gallery. Anyway, good luck. that will be a sharp ride 8)

Let me make sure everyone understands that I meant the truck in the pic, as well as other good looking trucks can be found at the website I gave, not my old truck.

Ben,

This is a great looking project. The colour is great, as is the paint finish. Well done so far. Good luck with the rest of the build!

Best Wishes
