I started this and it was put on the back burner so I could finish my Paystar.I have two of these 362's and they where both warped it took a lot of work to get them in usable condition.I made a Double Eagle sleeper and was going to paint it like the United truck below but now I'm not sure what the paint is going to be.

Made a front bumper and some boxes that are being chromed.

This is where it is at right now. The fenders are stretched Turnpiker fenders.

Well I decided on orange mist for the paint but need to figure out a color for the frame. I don't want to go with black it hides the details.

Looks nice. I like the orange.

I thought the AMT kit was a 352? I'm so confused!!!

I like it. A suggestion for the frame might be to go with a Champaign Gold.

Very nice & impresive Peterbilt you have there!!!

My first thought for the chassis color was yellow, but to make it diferent I would like to see it painted in white.

Just a small update. I did some more undercab detailing and made some hydraulic lift cylinders. What a pain in the neck to get them to work right.
