A little update tonight. I have got the Cummins plumbed but it still needs more once it is in the frame for good. I just sat it in the frame to get an idea as to how it is going to look. I used christmas tree bulb hooks for the hard piping for fuel lines and oil line to turbo. I also used baking soda and testors rust on the manifold and exhaust side of the turbo and Detail Master fittings on most of the plumbing. I plan to work more on it while off from work for the holiday this weekend. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks

Nice details on the engine. The cable ties are cool. The belts in front look kinda rough though.
Chris, have you tested the cab on the frame with the engine in place? I had problems with the firewall clearance once I added the tubing to the back side of the engine. But it was a Peterbilt kit with DD 60 Series in it. Just make sure your FLC does not have a problem of this kind.

I like this! It's almost sad to know that the truck body's going to hide some of that detail! But you have done a real good job of this!

Little update tonight. I got to try my new airbrush out with some alcad. I sprayed these resin 10 hole Alcoas and stuck them on temporarily. I was very pleased how they turned out. I now have to strip my chrome parts and alclad them. Thanks. Chris IMG_2999_zpsf59a39de.jpgIMG_2998_zps74a472bf.jpgIMG_2995_zpsd90de939.jpg

Man! The rims came out great didn't they! Love those traction tires, makes it look right. Nice stripes on the cab, good color. Very nice Freightliner.
