Finished this last night.
Aluminum straight pipe exhaust, Scratchbuilt compressors ( first time) and tank and ran air lines.
Used the stock frame and notched it.
Added side trim and weathered.
This was built to resemble a project truck that's in progress.
Something you'd see in a construction zone special of Minitruckin mag... But it's a full size lol

I just got done looking at the build page, some nice work. I liked the fact that you kept it in the "project" stage, love that look. Do you happen to have any photos of the air ride set up? Tank, comp., bags, etc...? One day I'd like to build models of the different stages my custom trucks went through.

Btw, I like your reference to the "construction zone" , one of the best parts about MT magazine.

Wish I woulda saw this before, I'd really appreciate it if you could send some photos over. I'd like to build the air ride set up for my Merc and this new van I got. I think you'll love what I'm gonna do to the van. I'll try and get a photo for you.
