I hope this isn't so! Realistically, they have been out for a long time so I would not be surprised if they have been discontinued. I hope they were a good seller for Moebius. I know I bought over 60 of those reefer kits to use the suspension and wheels to complete the flatbed kits I was making.
As for the license plates, each state used to require a commercial vehicle to be registered in that state to drive through it. So a truck would need a plate for each state that it would travel through. In 1973 the International Registration Plan was passed which started with just a few states, but gradually all other states as well as Canada and Mexico joined in. Under this plan, only one license plate would be needed and a commercial vehicle could travel through any of these states.
The fuel tax stickers for each state were phased out in stages. Starting in the early 80’s a couple states got to a consensus on how fuel tax would be handled among them. More states joined as time went on. In 1991 a federal act was passed to make fuel tax universal in all 48 states of the continental US. The deadline for all states to be onboard was September 30, 1996. So there were state fuel tax stickers used in some capacity up until 1996 depending on the part of the country.
Well, I seem to have hit a snag. I cleared the cab tonight and I am not liking the way it is looking. Not sure what happened, but it just doesn't look right now. I think I am going to have to strip the paint off and start over. I felt like I was getting close to the light at the end of the tunnel, but now it is a going to be a bit more work.
