    Here's my old 76 stepside, wish I still had her. I'll have to look around and see if I can find any other pics.

    Thanks everyone. Can't wait to pick up a Diamond Reo and spend some quality time on one.

    It's due to Florida's bridge laws. They can legally haul 78,000 lbs with a single axle truck with 12k on the front axle.

    Don't know yet, I can send them to you if you need them for something. I was just going to throw them in the parts box.

    Well, I'm about 2.5 hours into my build and she's coming along really nicely. I'm pretty proud so far.

    Here's a crappy cell phone pic

    I got the bed cut down so it fits nicely on the frame. I still need to cut up the bed liner, should have that done in the next hour or so. Then I'll pretty much be ready for paint. That won't come until tomorrow maybe.

    Tri Axle Gravel Trailer
    Did a buy it now on ebay for $25 and just came in today. Everything is still sealed up in the stock packaging except the box itself. I feel I got a pretty good deal considering the prices these things seem to go for. I'm going to start on it tomorrow night while I am at work as long as it is not busy. i plan to shorten the bed a couple scale feet and use only two of the axles to simulate the typical Florida rock bucket.
    This is what I'll be using to build it



    I took this shot of a Fruehauf dump in Florida a couple years back. I intend for this one to come out the same with the exception of a black frame and no roll tarp.
    I'll post pics as I progress.

    Man that looks really good, can't wait to see the trailer weathered.

    l'm as far as I'm going with this practice build. Looking good so far, need some better masking tape as the paint bled through. The pearl white looks silver on top of the gray primer. I think she looks pretty good so far though. Now to get me a DR and start working on it.

    Shot some paint on it a couple days ago, I think I'm going to tape up the hood a little bit and get the top painted blue to match the cab a little more.

    Don't need the motor right now, just practicing with this one, probably not even going to put a motor in it for now. As far as how much I cut off, I couldn't tell you, just eyed this one up.

    Crappy cell phone pic, but here's where I'm at

    That's funny, I used to go to school at Pathway Christian right behind Stepps lot. At recess I would always go hang out by the fence to watch them move the trucks out or bring trucks in with can-do. That truck was really a beast when you're looking at it at 8 years old...lol
