I was going for a daily worker without a ton of shiny , but what there is the driver was proud of it and kept it polished and clean.

Transtar C-O 4070A Rebuild

19 January 2015 - 11:09 AM

This is one my favorite coe's for a classic look.  I acquired a old built up in a trade that need some tlc and bought another off ebay (which was a glue bomb) to try and combine the two.  Truck from trade had a two piece front axle , ebay truck axle was complete but shipped in a box with no protection. Its axle turned into a three pieces.

The frame had a slight tweak to it , just enough to annoy me. I cut the rear suspension off and worked the twist out (mostly)

I punched out 4 round disk to compensate the air bags from the saw cut.

I have a vision of a 1970's era OTR customized truck for this one with some truck stop bling to personalize it for the driver.

Currently I plan on using rear two holer's  (which will be chrome) from Double -Take Replicas.

 

The cab is in a bath of Simple Green along with many other parts.

Hope you find this one interesting. :)

My Wife and I really like Halloween, so every year we do a Yard Haunt.  I like to build our props and this is a witch I made a few years back.

Russell's Apollo -116 Diamond Reo

After seeing all the great Trucks built over the past year and New Trucks starting to transform on the bench, I need to get back to work.

Russell C  posted a pic of this truck some time back and I was awe struck,   I love to old school trucks and just had to build this one.

I did a quick mock up of a few key parts to check against the reference pic I am using. Sleeper sets too high , but most likely wont use this resin brick anyway. It was just handy for the pic.

 

Stay tuned  :)
