  1. Can someone I.D this truck?

    As stated above, RMR and Jimmy Flintstone offer these in resin as well as the Danbury diecast version. In the past, resin cabs were also offered by Rick Manz and Ron Cash, though both were quite a while ago, but they still show up on eBay once in a while. All are very slightly different, and Manz also offered a sleeper version. The Cash version was excellent, the Manz version less so.

    Nice work...................real nice replication of an old friend!
  3. GMC 7500 Fertilizer Spreader Truck

    Had a similar problem with the White 3000 cab I built over 30 years ago. It was a crude casting from Rick Manz, and had several soft spots. Tried many cures but found that super glue and baking soda filled the soft spot with a very hard and sandable filler that I primed and painted and it still looks perfect today.

    Brian, those older cabs are thick, but an hour or so with a Dremel tool and a sanding drum can get the far thinner very easily.....................that is what I did with the rollback build I had posted. Good luck sir!

  8. 66" Terra Tire or Tires

    Here are what I have ..... This one shown above measures 66.25 scale inches OD. It is 42.2 scale inches wide. On one side the ID is 34.5 scale inches, (the side with the large Goodyear name), and is 27.6 scale inches, (with the smaller Goodyear name). I have them in left hand and right hand. These measure 61.7 scale inches OD, 36 scale inches in width, and have an ID of 27.25 scale inches. These are not marked and are usable as rights or lefts. Let me know which ones you may need.
