      I have good news to report that I have remedied my rubbery resin body caused by stripping the paint with Scale Coat.  This is how I did it:
      After washing and cleaning the body with dish soap and water; I put it in a dehydrator for 2 days.  I then lightly sanded it  Then applied 2 coats of Aluminum plate METALIZER .  Then it was put back in the dehydrator overnight.  The body now seems usable and is ready for paint.

    Rubbery resin from paint remover?
      I put an old painted resin body in Scale Coat to remove the paint.  Unfortunately, I left the resin body in too long.  The paint did come off.  However, the body now has a rubbery pliable texture to it.  It seems as if I could use for a build though.   Not sure if it will hold paint?   And, will the resin body become more rubbery with time?  Thought maybe if I shot it with Metalizer it might firm it up a bit? Or, should I just "chuck It"?  Any help.

    Tremendous builds!   Might I ask with their size 1/16, how do you display or store these?  Would like to build on this scale, however I would have difficulty putting these on display.

    Thank you for the compliments.  Jesse, I did build a cow catcher for the front.  Was not sure if this version had one on the front?  Could not find any reference PICS. Might you know?  I know there is a cow catcher on Hemi version and the current reproduction.   A cow catcher does add a nostalgic touch.

    I was inspired to do this model by the tremendous "Freight Train" builds of Steve Perry and John Teresi.  Hope you like.

    Thanks for the nice comments.  No, I don't have a link to the toy trash truck.  I purchased it  at a discount second hand store for one dollar.  I had to do major cutting and reshaping to make it a rear loader.  I do remember the Mattel name on the bottom of it when I was hacking.  It would be nice if a resin maker would come out rear loader garbage truck body.

    Garbage Truck
    Hi Guys
       This is my 2nd attempt at a truck build.  It is a MPC Mack DM 600 with a heavily modified garbage truck body that was taken from a Mattel front loader trash toy truck.  The wheels and tires are from American Industrial Truck Models.  The decals are hand made.

      I do like the tire combination that you plan on using.  Can you please tell me about the slicks (from Hugh) that you are going to use (i.e type, size)?    Thanks.
