As far as the pipes on the real truck they look a little to long to me.
I like the color for the look your going after.
I'm not hijacking your site with this photo just giving you some ideas if you want them.
I went with black and Gunmetal on this one and built it on the ground as if it was at a show with the air bags dumped.
If you want your fenders closer to the tires just add flat plastic to the bottom edge and some puddy and your set.
The pipes on this one is 5/32 tube cut to fit the way I wanted on this one.

Especially if your going for the stealth look.

- Legally they should not be any higher than 13`6" from the ground up.

What exactly would 13'6" be in scale? I think i will cut them down so they are about 8mm (8" in 1:1 scale) above the cab..keep them kind of short. Will try and get them cut down sometime this evening....hoping to get this thing painted asap...thanks for the comments and suggestions guys.

Well finally got the stacks worked down to the size I liked. They are about 4 1/2" tall and are just above the cab. Had to make some brackets to mount them with, luckily the styrene rod I had was the perfect size to fit the holes in the truck. Made some V pieces and added the round styrene...Will be basically like the original design. Should look good once painted. Should I paint them body color, or paint them however I do the exhaust?

Been busy, but finally got some time to work ok this truck. I got the body/hood painted black and got the clear drying now. I had planned on painting the grille, bumper, tanks gloss black as well, but ran out of black paint. I had also planned on painting the stacks, frame and wheels a dark grey gloss....but with no black, I cant make the grey I had planned out lol. I am going to try and find some flat black and spray everything else, and go from there. Not exactly what I wanted, but I want to get this finished soon. Will get pics up as soon as clear dries.
