Nice aging. But why the greased fifth wheel on a yard dog? Should be scratchy, rusty and dusty. A lot of guys make freshly greased fifth wheels on well used if not abused trucks. Can´t understand that.

Jarda this is a quite interesting question. I am not sure but perhaps I misunderstood the real meaning of the word “yard goat”. In my opinion it is an old truck used in a yard for moving around trailers which are loaded, unloaded or repaired. That will mean that the truck is used nearly every day with a lot of trailers and this means a lot of grease came on to the fifth wheel.

It all depends on the company. Roadway wouldve greased it no matter if it were a goat or not. Ive worked for companies that used old trucks and goats to move trailers and they were greased, and ive worked where they didnt
The build is lookin fantastic man, well done so far

Here is the last work for this weekend. I started with the interior. The door panels were reworked and some details added. The steering parts were put together and fixed in place. I hope to get some time and paint it.

And one from the front tire looks quite used.

By the way the next step will be the engine. Must a DD have this strange color? This green-blue or blue-green I am not sure what it is. Looking through some pictures in the internet a DD can be green red silver blue and so on… What would be an accurate paint for ?

Thats fantastic aging Arnd . As for the DD it could be a reconditioned engine and as its a yard truck I think it would be quite possible that you could do it any colour you wanted . Im loving the plumbing that your doing too.

The older Detroits in Macks from the era this truck would represent would indeed be "Alpine Green" (The bluish-green you mentioned) Roadway did in fact use Detroits in Macks (very un-common) but abandoned the idea after the engines were proved to be problematic. Don't forget to add leaking oil detail on the engine! as they were notorious for leaking!..................................Mark

Hallo guys
I worked a bit on the Mack yesterday. Not a big step but some nice little details are ready. The wheels are dirty and installed. The nail catcher I hope this is the right name for it is reworked dirty and put in to the right place.
And the pictures

Ive been watching this, and its coming along great. This being a Mack of a certain age, it wouldnt be authentic without oil leaking out of the dashboard. Keep up the good work.
