It will be a nice one I'm sure.

The hood looks very nice.

If you had a big load on the trailer you may have trouble at the scales. Looks like you could jog in there. It's a "condo".

Just a few more things made up for this one....I stretched the frame and put it together, of course, and made up new battery boxes....I'm going to use the kit tanks, but had to strip the chrome....I also made up some air filters out of PVC pipe and plastic with a little wire mesh I found at the dollar store in the form of a strainer....They're not done, yet...I still have to add some ribs to them....017a_zps21c56828.jpg001a_zps6fbb7f69.jpg004a_zpsf952bf74.jpg014a_zpsce386992.jpg019a_zps6c1452f1.jpg

This truck is going to be massive. Also J.T. I am going to steal the way you made the breathers, its such an innovative way to do that. I am an honest thief I tell you first.
