      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    although I worked on and started a few kits last year I only managed to get one finished.
    I prefer the classic look for trucks,I decided I needed a contemporary old school custom
    A snap aerodyne was the base for this one

    those things were installed in all sorts of chassis all with a bell housing swap.So a dodge,ford or chev transmission will work depending on what you ate doing with it
  9. mistermodel added a post in a topic KW suspension question   

    amt autocar dump  truck would be a good one.pretty much like a kw 6 rod that Jim mentioned.Any walking beam in most amt kits would do the trick,astro/titan is the nicest.I cant say if it any of those would be period correct if that the look you want.Lots of times these old trucks had mack rear diffs and suspension swapped in because they were pretty much bullet proof.if going for a restored truck in use today a pete air ride or kw 8 bag  would be ok

    since there isn't a brbo anymore why not just have the finished projects in the standard spot?

    I've made note of 5 different ladder steps,not including the different combinations of under the door steps.The square box door steps on the kit maybe a sever service cab option

    looking good
  13. mistermodel added a post in a topic amt freightliner cab corrections   

    just a few of examples on how far freightliner would go to give you what you wanted in a truck






  14. mistermodel added a post in a topic amt freightliner cab corrections   

    if you want to back date it,round stepless lower cab panels will need to be fabricated.The kit is a "high mount" 61 series and a back dated "low mount" would be about 3 inches lower.These low mount cabs don't have the grill below the main grill ,but rather a solid panel.I started a low mount and made new frame hinges that are lower.Not sure if that right or its in the cab to make it lower.Then the front name plate will have to be changed.The kit has a frontal air intake with a grill.A back dated frontal air intake would have holes on either side of the "coat hanger "shaped emblem with out the grill part.Or just use the grill less emblem and fabricate a intake like most cab overs have.The kit lights are too high and a 2 or 4 lamp system would be totally up to you. The rivets like most amt trucks are too big.If your a real detail freak there should be 3 ribs on the door and a rubber around the peep window.It was mentioned the angle panel on the front is incorrect.It is correct for a sever service cab.Freightliners were a totally custom built truck ,anything could and was done ,so in all reality the incorrect headlight location could be correct if the truck was ordered that way
