Hi guys I've acquired about 15 built up truck and trailers. The trucks are all complete as far as i know and all have instructions, the trailers are in good order. The question I got is for the trucks themselves, I want to strip them and rebuild them my way. What is the best way to do that? Cheers Craig ps here's a pic of the units

HI, They really don't look that bad. To get the glue apart, dunk the cabs into water, stick them in ziplock bags and put them in the freezer. You might have to do this several times to get them apart. To repaint the cabs, i would just scuff up the old paint, prime and repaint. Steve
