That should look pretty good! What's your plan for diesel motivation since you have all that space under the hood to fill? I could easily imagine a nice 12V71... Even with twin turbos!

well I have a nice v8 cat I have been looking at. im building this truck kind of backwards. I wanted to get the body the way I want it and kind of build around that platform. does that make any sense? one thing I have decided on was the color.

Going to be cool with the long hood. Pity the guy who has to drive it, they were hard enough to see over with the regular hood!

[attachment=40216:2013-06-01 10.11.12.jpg]using the straight edge and the back side of my xacto knife I scribed panel lines to break up the emptiness of the sleeper sides and then used the pin vise to make rivet dents. since i'm running twin air cleaners I choose to stick with the square ones just because they go along with the boxyness of the truck itself. I had to rework the one for the left side by cutting and regluing the intake on the back side next to the cowling. now the frame. with just the hood and cab setting next to the kit chassis, i can kind of ballpark the stretch i'm looking for. for extra frame rails, I used square stock and cut it in half. find a spot on the stock rails and cut. I try to find a spot that can be consealed if need to be. use angle on the inside for support, and walla! shes straight and square............enjoy Q.

Sweet looking build John like the sleeper just looks so much better. Glad it's not a true coffin sleep those where true coofin if you woke up you were very lucky.Just think of sleeping under the front of the trailer in the front on the old trucks behind the drives and before exhausts where raised up.!
