    Good morning Mike,
    The reason I have found out is that AMT didn't want to do separate tooling for a day cab and a sleeper cab.

    Thanks for the tips? I guess I cut the styrene to size and attach them to the inside of the cab at the seam line. When you say shim the back wall do you mean the tub or the wall itself?

    Pete thank you so much. Enjoy the day.

    Thanks for the reply and picture. That's a great build. No filler but is the seam visible at all?

    Lee,
    Good morning. Thank you for the tips. What somebody told me was the following. Block sand the mating pieces all around on the front and middle of the cab. Then glue and fill the seams will plastic filler (don't know which one to use) and sand flat. I will lose some of the riveting but can be replaced with rivet decals (microscale or such). Then install interior tub at front of cab and then the bunk tub after that although not sure if I have to sand the sides of either the cab tub or the bunk tub or both.If you can provide some direction to the above I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

    Which is the easier build
    Morning all.
    Hope everyone's well. Have a question which is the easier build. The AMT Peterbilt 352 or the White Freightliner Dual Drive? I heard negatives on both. The 352 supposedly has issues with the cab and the exhaust stack alignment in addition to the frame needing to be pin straight in alignment with the front bumper cab hinge pins. The Freightliner with its 3 piece cab and the sanding the interior to fit in addition to sanding the front and middle pieces flat to get a proper seam fit the possibly using a filler to eliminate the seams. If anyone has built either or both I'd love to hear about your experience's positive and negative in addition to any pictures you may have of completed works. Thank you as always.

    John,
    Thanks. In doing a bit of research on the Jimmy Means cars from 1987. In addition to the Grand Prix's Jimmy also ran Monte Aerocoupes in the Turtle Wax scheme. BTW the builds you have shown on the site in addition to the information you offer is invaluable to all of us. Your builds are PHENOMENAL. Thank you.

    Clear coat on windshield and back window glass=Help
    To all hi
    Okay so being the Brainiac that I am I have succeded in clear coating my windshield and back window on my latest project. What a mess. I have tried rubbing alcohol, stainless steel polish, toothpaste, windex, and nothing has worked. It has been suggested that I used LA Totally Awesome All Purpose Cleaner. I cannot source it locally but have found a similar product by Top Job. Question I have is do I have to take the glass out and soak it in the liquid or can I leave glass intact and swab on with a Qtip or a cotton ball and then wipe it clean? FYI I have glued the glass in place with Testors Canopy Glue then glued from the inside with standard Testors Model Cement. So I would probably have to exacto knife it off I would think. Help is most appreciated. Thanks
