Working on a new project and need some detail help
Posted 29 August 2007 - 07:49 AM
I'm building a late 70's F-600 based on some resin parts acquired from a friend of mine. I'm building it up using the C-600 chassis and using the dumpbed from the AMT snowplow kit. It's coming along nicely and I'm wanting to add some additional details. Specifically I have a broom and shovel that I want to mount on the outside. I'm stumped as to how to do it and for the life of me I can't seem to find any pictures of how it's done on 1:1 trucks. Does anyone have any pics or suggestions on how this might be done?

I've always seen shovels or brooms shoved handle-down behind the handrails that run along the sides of the dumpbed. I've also seen them stored this way behind grab handles on the cab rear. I suppose you could also rig some kind of securement along the chassis side as well, I've seen some implements carried this way, too.
