  1. Truck accident last night in Arizona

    Wow! He was extremely lucky! Would much rather have a totaled truck over losing a driver any day!
  2. Air Lines

    I crawled under a trailer today to get an idea of what the air line plumbing looks like on a trailer. I am having trouble distinguishing which line does what. I noticed there are two different sizes. Which one would be the hose for the red gladhand and which one would be for the blue gladhand?
  3. Wilson Livestock Trailer

    Thank you for your advice! The instructions leave a lot to be desired, this will help a lot.
  4. Wilson Livestock Trailer

    I will definitely look into that today, I was going to see if there was a better option than thick fishing wire. Do you just glue it in with regular plastic cement? And can you just cut it with scissors?
  5. Wilson Livestock Trailer

    I got a little bit more done last night with some air line plumbing. It really tested my patience, but I think it turned out okay.
  6. Wilson Livestock Trailer

    I never did think of that, and sure enough I found some helpful pictures! Thank you!
  7. Wilson Livestock Trailer

    Got a little bit of progress with some electrical and some piping based off a picture I found online.
  8. Hello everybody, tonight I just started the Wilson livestock trailer and I have a few questions to begin with. Can anybody show me what they did with the frame assembly? The instructions are not very clear and I want to make sure I get it right. Has anyone ever plumbed this trailer too? I would love to but I cannot find any good pictures of the airlines. Any help is appreciated!
  9. Painting Questions

    Haha, its lucky that I have some then. I've used it to degrease engines before, and I've heard it does wonders on "fixing" the AMT chrome. I'll definitely keep that in mind. Thank you for all the tips!
  10. Pioneer Valley ATHS Truck Show

    What were some of the more interesting trucks?
  11. GMC Daycab done 10/21

    This build has been really fun to watch, and I certainly cannot wait to see the finished product! I absolutely love all the modifications you did to make it a day cab, it looks as if you bought it that way! I also love the Coca Cola paint, it really makes it stand out
  12. Painting Questions

    Do you clean your parts with anything before painting?
  13. Painting Questions

    Thank you for the tip! I do have some scraps laying around that I'll be sure to test on.
  14. Painting Questions

    Thank you for the reply! South Dakota (especially around this time of year) is mostly cool and humid in the fall and spring, with cold snowy winters and hot, humid summers. As far as I know, isn't the recommended temperature for painting 70ish? How good are those one coat lacquers? I've seen them in the Hobby Lobby here but I haven't tried one yet. I also noticed the grey primer for models, I want to say it's Testors. Is this the kind you recommend? Lastly, what about interior colors? What types of paint to do use for those?
  15. GMC Daycab done 10/21

    Thank you for the reply though! I never thought to look on Auslowe, I'll definitely give it a look. You have pretty much convinced me to start my Astro kit that's been sitting around for a while. Your's looks great so far!
