    Thank you sir. I haven't decided on a body color. I thought dark blue metallic or dark cherry red . Although the pearl silver on the Tackaberry truck isn't bad either.

    Bit by bit it is taking shape. Modified the water pump, added the water manifold on the side of the head. Started on the oil cooler.

    It will look something like this.

    Still drillin' and filin' and sandin', until my hands cramped up. then went to the Big Al.

    Split the DAF's turbo and rotated so it could accept a pipe from above. Made the pipe from the intercooler with solder.

    Took another approach to opening up the grille. Similar to a technique used in woodworking to make mortises, I drilled overlapping holes to open up a slot for the files. Then I GINGERLY file off the rest careful not to eat into the very flimsy frames.

    I agree totally. I tried to start my grandson but everything came to a scrreching halt soon after. I am in the process of building a desk for him. Your daughter got right into it. Beautiful.

    Worked a bit on those airlines.


    Looks like the engine can fit using the donor frame's rear motor mount and rad. the front crossmember will need a relocation to the rear and up.

    My wife found these colors in her stash. the second one might be close.

    Thank you. I just realized I mixed up the pulleys.

    Playing with the exhaust manifold.

    Adding stuff to the front. It is supposed to end up looking like the photo .

    More work on the engine. Added details to the fuel injection pump I had cut off the DAF.

    Turned some pulleys.


    Turned the water manifold on its side, added a flange and a top plate. It will support the intercooler.

    Added detail to the bottom front cover.
