checked out the compatibility of the paints I'll be using on this truck, and they are doing okay! So, as soon as the weather outside warms up, I'll start the painting process.

I got ahold of a decal company that said they plan to do the decals for this truck. I just hope it won't take too long.

 

Do you know if it will just be tractor decals or some trailer decals too? Even though I know all our trailers were Wabash, I wouldn't mind making a Werner TCU out of the Dane trailer!

 

And I hope the weather warms up soon, get painting!!

I've started painting the truck! So far I've painted gloss white. Next (when the weather is clear, we have storms predicted all the way to next Thursday) I'll paint on the Dupli-Color Candy White, then add the decals, and then top it off with Dupli-Color Clear.

The catwalk will be the same blue as the frame, and the fenders will be white. I'm gonna add the Patriot decals from the new release AMT 352 Peterbilt kit. A friend sent me an extra set for the cab, but I'm thinking about getting another set for the fenders. Still stormy out, so I'm waiting to paint the candy white... :mellow:

You mean the taillights? The taillights are part of the original kit. The only thing I changed was the 5th wheel cover. I cut it out and then filled the hole where the 5th wheel came through...
