I can't decide which way to hang the mud flaps, but I'm leaning toward the ones on the fenders

If it were mine, I would put the mud flaps on those nice fenders, take off the long light arms, and put a drop down stubby "bumper" that will have the lights in it but will sit between the fenders to show them off. Just a thought.

fenders, and make a plate under the frame fore the lights. make it as wide of the frame ,cut the lower corners at a 45. then out line it with the marker lights. Lets say 2 or 3 down each side one on each corner(45) 2 or 3 alone the bottom. Then brake/turn lights on the inside of them( upper and lower and tag in the center.I don't have one too show.hope you get the idea. Wish I did last week when I was working on the snap KW.

Hang the flaps off the fenders!
There is a truck here locally running fenders like yours and he has mounted the light bars to the bottom edge of the fenders!

I agree with Johnny, add the light bats to the fenders and then hang the flaps.

That is how the truck I was telling you about had them ! Looks Great!;)

Now the beautiful fenders are not hid from view from the rear! Also in a real world application this makes the light bars and flaps less suceptable to damage while under a trailer!:angry:

That rocks! Looks great. Probably better than what I had in mind with a middle bumper with lights in it.

Fantastic looking Rig! The more you do the better it gets! Looking foreward to seeing it hooked up and ready for the road!B)
I remember seeing a few when I was OTR. Most were conventional but two were COE's One COE Double bunk Pete was a couple from Alaska! I was following them down I-94 and he was saying his wife was in the "kitchen" cooking up eggs, bacon, toast and coffee for breakfast!
Said as soon as she was done he was hitting the exit to eat and invited me for breakfast!
I asked how she cooks on a stove top in a moving truck and he said the same way she did on her first husbands fishing boat!:lol:
Pertty neat inside! The bunk in the cab was their bedroom and the rest was "home" as she called it! They were true Gypsy Truckers! They had sold everything for the rig and this was their home,complete with toilet shower and all!B)

This is just a guess, but there is one very similar in the Revell of Germany Peterbilt 359 kits.

Great looking build one thing that might look very cool is a light panel in between the rear fenders also how about trying to make a flush mount rear deck plate.
