Here's a few more pics. Still in the building stages. Revell snap kit, Italeria frame & wheels from some kit. 8" stacks are copper tubing covered w/ chrome vinyl from my sign shop. The end from a cheap bic pen provided the 8" to 5" reducers. Still have to paint the mud flaps and build headache rack (lumber hauler) & other details.

Need to trim em a bit. When hooded to a van trailer, they are only about 1/4 " to tall. Diameter of them makes em look tall. I've goy a buddy that just installed 8's on his 1 to1 Pete. They look the same way.

That looks amazimg, I love the style. Im doing a p51 themed truck using the exact kit and aabout the same wheelbase! I love the name too....oh and for your scratchbuilt chrome items, BMF has a new edition of foil that matches the kit chrome perfectly! Im using it on my other build right now also.

It looks great. Any Peterbilt with a small sleeper and big Pipes and old school paint job gets my vote. It really gives it that west coat LARGE CAR look!!!!!!!!!
