Loving the black. I always liked the W9's,out of a few OTR tractors I owned/opporated before "retiring" (it's gov-pushed-me-into-disability 8 years after an injury,long tired story,but I call it retired

I have always waned to drive a truck, and if I did I wanted a solid black one....You see the ones that are extreme chromed out, but i don't think I have ever seen one in person that was all black. Just gives the truck more attitude being black....hoping to get more done tonight and tomorrow...thanks again

Got all the flat black sprayed, just waiting for it to dry and I will get some pics...I had to change direction on this, because i ran out of black, so therefor couldn't make the dark grey I wanted. But it turned out to be ok...think the flat black looks better. Will get pics up ASAP

Here are pics of everything painted....going to start assembly later tonight....I ended up having to us auto trim paint on he chrome pieces...the other paint wouldn't stick to it. It adds a little realism to the pieces and a unique finish.

Looks nice. This is an interesting build.
The auto trim paint might not stick either. If you're going to paint the chrome pieces, they really should be stripped first in oven cleaner or Castrol Super Clean. Works wonders!

Yeah i was thinking about sending them to the purple pond...but the trim paint stuck pretty good....I was wanting to scrape some off and have a little chrome showing, but the paint etched into the chrome...so only bare plastic is what i got...so had to shoot a quick coat and just go all black. they seem to have a black chrome look to them, which was unplanned lol... Here are a few pics of the chassis together...getting everything ready to install the body...will have those pics up ASAP

That is really cool about using the coat hangers and other ideas for stacks. Resourcefulness and scrounging at its best....
With a set of stacks like that, it can't help but to look "sick". Nice job.
