  1. Thanks Brian but theres no way I would finish this year, Im just piddling at best right now on any projects.
  2. Top notch builds Brian, the 7400 is my favorite!
  3. This one is killer Brian, the flex pipe idea is genius
  4. I have all but decided on the restrite sleeper, i have also lengthened the frame about 40 scale inches although that isnt pictured here.
  5. These are great kits that go together surprisingly well. The issues i remember with mine were the rear suspension has a small rake to it and i also used Aitm wheels on the front of mine, which look great but i had to do a lot of cutting to make the wheels sit in closer to the frame......those extra suspension parts are for the DM 800
  6. I have all but decided to go with the restrite sleeper that AITM offers... If you haven't built this kit before (its a first for me) the rear suspension is a n alignment nightmare ???
  7. Ok, here's a very rough mock up. Im not sure how i feel about the Mercury, i will most likely go with a different sleeper, something a little more rounded. There will also be some frame added.
  8. Gonna be a miracle if i can actually build something in six months ???
  9. Ok fellers, I guess I'll have to jump in on this one.....if i decide to add a trailer last minute with that be an issue? It will be a new build as well...
  10. Awedome work Brian! Great job on the doghouse especially!
  11. Ive seen it both ways Casey. I imagine trying to keep a straighter line between the axles was a selling point ploy by manufacturers. "We degree our axles to save your U joints", in reality axles are constantly changing angles even just cruising down the highway.
  12. I like the cascadia and columbias, two of the most comfortable trucks I've driven
  13. Looks to me like its a modified italeri jumbo tanker
  14. Im wanting some 53 series detroits too. Ive got big plans to scratch a 453 and a 6v53....but thats as far as they've gotten...plans lol
  15. I dont see why not, you could "round" the nose of almost any trailer to mimic a 50s model trailer
