Not quite an L700 but this was a quick sketch of a lowered 61 White COE for drag with a V12 Detroit Diesel.

Think Deora or maybe you are. I would do the cuts similar to this then lay the pillars back by scoring the back side and wedge cutting them and here is a pic of the Deora.

This is a cool idea! Where I used to live, a guy chopped a real '70's IHC Fleetstar. It was in primer and did not have any glass the last time I saw it, but it sure was neat! Go for modifying your Dodge model!

I dropped a 440-6 pack into the race car hauler I built. After listening to your ideas, I think you better get it built, or you might have a lot of unhappy people here. LOL

Thanks for the info guys. I think I am going to cut the roof into four pieces widen and extend it then drop it down. I need to figure out how many scale inches. He is also an updated picture I have put the springs on with poster putty to get an idea of how it looks. These are also the wheels I am going to use. But what I am trying to figure out is how to drop the Frame down do I still use the springs or just glue the axle to the Framewith some type of bracket

Okay here is an update I did the chop now I am working on putting it back together again.

Posted Image
First I made a mask around the cab to show me where I was cutting and scribbed it with the razor knife

Posted Image

Posted Image

Here is the after picture I think the cutting turned out well I chopped it high enough that I can smooth out the detail in the back pillers so it runs up into the top

Posted Image

I then took the top section and quartered it I am now working on spreading it out so it lines up with the bottom section. Does anybody have some tips on making this part easy.

Thanks for looking

Tim Kracht

I like where you are going with this! Only thing I can figure is that the pogo stick looking think could be a hanger for the air lines that would attach to a trailer. Usually, there are springs attached to it that hold the air lines up out of the moving parts of the drivetrain.

Yahshau Any chance you can take a picture of the brace that the back of the cab sits in and your placement of the engine. And yours looks cool to as well

Not really sure what it is trying to find all the pieces but the instructions are not set well and no numbers on the spru. Wanted to know how it mounts up to the horseshoe looking brace.

It just mounts to the cab support. Maybe you can figure it out from my pics. My L700's both have Cross-ram Hemi's in them. Keep us posted on your progress. I love these Dodges! Brad
