  1. Finally got enough parts together to get this show on the road! Laid out all the dimensions on the bench, and made up the frame rails and front and rear crossmembers. The frame is a double frame and is very heavy duty. The tires are 14.00 x 24. This is going to be a huge build!
  2. That is VERY nice work! Love the engine, as well as the cab!
  3. Hi Pat, those come from Jamie at Moluminum. I sand them on a piece of sandpaper on a flat piece of glass to get the openings to show. They are superbly done resin.
  4. Fantastic Charlie! It is always enjoyable to watch your builds. What with everything going on right now, I come home at night and collapse, BUT, I always spend time here on the forums, watching builds by incredibly talented friends....................and you always lead the way sir!
  5. Absolutely stunning work sir!!! And the engineering put into this is beyond belief! The hydraulic and air fittings look like the real thing............................incredible!!!! WOW!
  6. Wow.............you're on a roll! Beautiful work. And GREAT subject matter!
  7. Yup, as a retired paramedic, I've seen it too......................flashing lights in WalMart for example. Even our ambulance lights can be disruptive. Epilepsy is a very real and serious disorder, misunderstood by many.
  8. For sure..........the Cummins needed a twelve foot long shoehorn to get it in! I actually swapped one years ago in a fire department tanker.................what a ROTTEN job. That old girl was about 18" short of qualifying as a cabover!
  9. Thank you............and thank you for the lead on the 73 Grand Am!!! It's a small world!
  10. Used to drive one of those exact trucks with a flat bed on her hauling hay in from the fields about 50 years ago. Amazing thing is that old truck is still around and in better shape than I am. The grandson of the farmer still has it, and actually has it for sale at this moment in North Adams, MA. If that one you are building was a faded green flatbed, I'd swear you had a shrinking machine!
  11. Absolutely phenomenal work sir! Superb details, and wow, what a total package! Thank you for sharing the build. Incredible.
  12. Mocked up the radiator, inner fenders, radiator overflow, windshield washer tank, and air cleaner to check fit. Added the fuel tanks, air tanks, battery box. Time now for wiring and hoses, making the hydraulic cylinder and cab details. Now it’s easy to see just how tight these old girls were under the hood. Yikes! Brings back lots of bloody skinned knuckle memories!
  13. Beautiful work Charlie. You definitely have captured the "look" of that old girl.
