    Greatwork on your headache rack Sam. Adding more strip to beef it up looks good, and you'll be much happier than using the resin offerings.

    The hinges have a flange that would be used to glue to the body or door edge. 
    I'm just returning from the Bristol night race,  I'll post an image when I return if needed

    Happy to offer another tool we can use ! That's what makes these forums great, helping each other
    As far as how many trucks these would cover, hmm..unsure.  I'm guessing each door is about 2 nches tall, ? I did use a small section for a frame mounted tool bin, and had more left. My door was 48mm tall.

    Here's a trick to add to your truck modeling arsenal, real working piano hinges! A fellow modeler suggested them after trying other types,and they worked great! They come pre assembled, ready to glue into your existing door openings, and function like the real thing!  Here's a link to them, I used the 6 inch length type, the opening size is about 5mm including the glue flange !!! The item number is H100N

    First class detailing on your build! 
    If I may suggest an alternative for door hinges, there's a place in the UK, that's sells brass piano hinges, small enough for our builds. They come assembled,  just cut the length,  and glue on...done. here's the place http://www.phoenixmodeldevelopments.com/acatalog/The_Phoenix_Miniature_Hinge_Range.html
    and they ship super fast! A 6 inch length,  open size is just under 4 mm, is about perfect.

    Great pics of the mpcv 6×6 Buffalo's! ! I missed a chance to deploy to NTC in 97, shipped to S.Korea instead. Bronco makes a sweet kit of a similar vehicle...

    Your builds are so creative, keep up the fantastic work!!

    Love the Daytona wing, it compliments the lines perfectly

    I finished the same amazing kit last year, and it's a complete pleasure to build. Watch the instructions, there's a few parts they forget to show when to add, then page later, the parts seen installed.

    One I can think of is the tool boxes on the M1000 trailer located in front. It's never shown to place it, but next step it's mounted.

    Enjoy the dark side..lug nuts better have small hands!
