The hinges on the kit are finicky. The bumper barely clears the hinge creating a sticking point when tilting. A clunky set up. AMT should have put real hinges on it (attached to the chassis) rather than the hinge on the bumper.

I've never had good luck with truck kits tilting hoods or cab, I usually end up gluing them shut or leaving them loose so I can just remove it to see the engine detail.

A nice build well done.
I built my Peterbilt 352 years ago and I had a real tough time tring to get the cab and bumber to fit right and the cab to tilt right.
I ended up with my cab slightly to the left and the grill scrapes when the cab is tilted back anfd forth.
I still don't understand why Peterbilt let the air cleaner pipe go up through the cab.
A great job on your truck. Well done.
