    Good for you Clayton! I like your attitude about getting it finished for the contest. If it's not done in time, it's no big deal

    Thanks Dave. The roll-off chassis is loosely based on a Stellar Cable 75 unit that is 270 inches long. The container will be a Wastequip rectangular style roll-off with a height of approximately 73 inches.

    This is the nicest short nose DR I've seen! With all the detailing and custom exhaust you nailed it...great job Brian!

    That's a fine looking Lonestar Chris and an awesome paint job!

    Cutting music wire
    Since music wire is hardened steel, it's difficult to cut without the proper tool. Regular wire cutters can easily be ruined. I found this cutter at Home Depot and it works great! For my current project I'm using .047 music wire and this tool cut it with ease.
    For those who have a Dremel ( I don't), you're able to cut it. I paid $9.00 for them...well worth it!

    Thanks everyone! I think it was good to take a break from building for awhile. When it starts to feel like you have to do it instead of wanting to, a little time off can be a positive thing

    08-28-15 Update:

    I can’t believe it’s been two months since the last update. It feels good to be back on the bench!

    Both lift cylinders are built along with the reeving cylinder and sheaves. Here’s some mockup pics to date:













    I’m pleased with the results so far…now I’ll make the final fit adjustments.

    I’ll be focusing on plans for the container and start construction in the near future.
