Rommel, I am always baffled by the level of detail that you put in your builds. This truck is gonna be awesome. Like everyone else, i would hate to have to turn this around in a tight space.

Why does the ole Trucker's song "Give Me 40 Acres" come to mind when I went through all 7 pages of histerical comments and totally AWESOME build shots of this Wrecker. I have to say Rom, You sure know how to knock the ball clear out of the county (and possibly the state for that matter) with your builds! The Chevelle first is absolutely stunning, the Nova turned out KILLER! and now this? When does the insanity end?? LmAo! ;) :P Keep up the outstanding work my friend! Can't wait to see the next update on this build. :angry:

Well, what can I say that hasn't already been said. Incredible work. It must be a real SOB to do an alignment on the 1:1, though. I humbly bow to your abilities! B)

Here's another small update or really just an addition to what has already been posted. (I forgot to add these last night) enjoy!

this is the driver side tank support.

a couple mockups keep in mind that the tanks will be recessed into the wrecker body a few inches.

Somehow I missed the updates on this last week. You're doing some fantastic work on this beast. I love all the scratch built goodies, but the steering is off the charts. Oops, wait a minute. I have to clean the drool of my keyboard. :D :P

I've been saving my kudos until this is done, but I can't resist piping in to say, simply, "astonishing."

Movin' right along! You are going to need an entire shelf unit or display cabinet to show this beauty off when you are done! I like the conversion, stretching, and twin steering! Something you don't see that often in kit form. Great work! B)
