  1. 37 caddy added a post in a topic Mack Western 700 series questions   

    the early interiors were a light army type of green color,then they went to the beige color,the easiest way to tell what color the interior was by the hood letters,they started to use larger letters on the front,it almost looked like they went to a capital style of letter for the MACK on the front hood,if you see the 2 of them side by side it is real easy to pick out,this was around 73 or 74,my father had a small fleet of macks,i was only 12 or so,and remember seeing them when they were new.The beige interior was so much better looking,they also went to the curved style dash then too.The dash in the DM600 is pre 74,and the dash in the AMT R600 is post 74. also the hood letters are visibly different too.

    All they had were little strips of metal that attached to the deflector and then they screwed to the front of the cab,they were like L brackets?,cant put it into words?,but it wasnt anything to elaborate?,not much help?.. Harvey

    Ebay used to be a great place to buy stuff,i have bought and sold lots of different items on there,not anymore as they have changed it all around so it only seems to benefit them,not the sellers or buyers.the shipping is the worst i have ever dealt with,mostly not any fault of the sellers,but they want their commision on the shipping now too,They have lost a lot of customers over that too,And since i live in Canada that makes it even harder to even get someone to sell to me?,Im sure other canadians have similar stories to tell,you would think that we are in mars when it comes to shipping stuff to us here.

    Very Nice, you could try a false floor in the trailer,then it wouldnt take so many tires to make a load?But i think it looks perfect the way it is. Harvey

    Its easy to become a member,you have to prove you are a real person,not a site looking for email addresses?,you have to apply with a reason you want to join,it is a real good website,i have wasted many hours on there.It might take a day or two for them to get back to you,but they will. Harvey

    another thing might be to narrow the front of the frame so it does not flare out?,Another thing is the rear suspension,not sure if they used the camelback setup that old,a lot of the b61's were single axle with a tag axle if they were tandem.ask over on Hanks Truck Forum,someone there can tell you exactly how they were.

  10. 37 caddy added a post in a topic AMT Ford L-Series Tire Size?   

    i got mixed up on the original question,my answer is not relavent at all.The 11.00 tire from the old MPC kits are the best looking tires out there,they are a little fatter then the 10.00 ones that AMT uses,but the tires are not supposed to touch,the pics of the rear tandems are how it should really be,with the 11.00 tires they are to close together,it does look better but is not really right,You could pack the 10.00 tires with cotton wadding to give them some depth,have seen that done before. Harvey
  11. 37 caddy added a post in a topic What is this part?   

    Ive seen this too,But how does it go?,it could be attached back there about 3-4 different ways.Anyone have any pictures of what the real thing looks like. Thanks Harvey

    The 11.00 X 22s are from the freightliner,autocar,roadboss kits,They would work if you had the right size rims for them.All of the louisville kits had the 10.00 X 20 size tires,the tandems too.Shouldnt be too hard to find some 20 inch tires, most of the other AMT kits used them. Harvey

    If you had 2 sets of them you could apply 1 over the other and then the color should be true,they are sort of transparent,that is why they dont look real white,Or as someone mentioned is to paint the white under them,if you were using base coat/Clearcoat the base is very thin and would not leave much of an edge,i would just put on a mist coat of white and it would help with the decal not bleeding through,Spray both colors and apply the decals then clearcoat it,it would really pop in the sun.

    most of the peterbilt motors back then were painted white from the factory,supposed to make it easier to find the oil leaks. Harvey
