  1. So while the cab is soaking in the stripper, thought I would get the plow done. This is the plow from the GMC plow truck. I added skid shoes and the end markers. Going to wire and plumb it when I put it on the dump truck.
  2. Got my color picked out of the paint cabinet. Its a forest green plasticote. Box is gona be satin black.
  3. Thank's for all your comments and input. I am having a lot of fun with this one.
  4. Thank's for all your comments and input. I am having a lot of fun with this one.
  5. Got the dump cylinder and fuel tank filler done. Built a receiver for it, now gona try building a pintle hitch for it.
  6. Thanks, for the input so far. Here a couple more pics. The fuel tank is parts box and the side boxes are scratch built.
  7. So got the air intake built for the cummins. Looks pretty good setting in the engine bay. Made from styrene tubing. Next is the exhaust. So here is the exhaust also scrath built. Having a lot of fun with this one.
  8. Heater tubes and hoses installed and goose neck and top radiator hose. Tubes and goose neck are scratch built styrene rod.
  9. Got the shocks done. Had to scratch build the drive shafts, using styrene tubing and ends from parts box drive shafts. Next is plumbin the engine.
  10. Making a little more progress on the dumper. Got the chase painted and the cummins in. Scratch building shocks, and have to build a cross member for the transfer case. I also opted out for a standard trans. didn't like the auto. trans. that comes with the cummins.
  11. The reflectors that come with Serest flea collars. They are clear and hollow. Cut the bottom off and paint the inside amber, and you have a caution light for wrecker, snow plow or whatever.
  12. Still workin on the dump truck. Scratching my head, trying to figure out what I could use to make a caution light for it. The wife calls out for some help putting the dogs flea collar on. '' Bingo'' an idea not the dog. The little clear snap on reflectors that come with the Seresto collars. (small dog). They are hollow so I cut the bottom off, painted the inside amber and made a base out of styrene. Thought I would share.
  13. So I got the cummins about finished. Now gotta make it fit. Lots of trimming and sanding on the engine, but it looks pretty good I think.
  14. So I decided if this thing is meant to plow snow, better have a bit more aggressive tires. 16'' mud & snow, from scenes unlimited. front lockers are scratch built. Got the 5.9 cummins from trailertrash yesterday, looking at a lot of reference pics on google.
