So I've been kicking around this crazy idea for a bit, I'm kinda planning as I go, as usual...

Armed with a doodle, some measurements I scaled out in Illustrator and a spare cab from a previous (poor) build I got to work.. Oh and a ton of sheet styrene.

The doodle..

Started by stripping the cab (amazingly the windows were painted and they look saveable too) I then set that on a set of Moebius semi wheels and Pegasus 23's to check and see where I was.

then I got to work with a Xacto, a ruler and a bunch of .040 sheet....

Now this is cool!Wonder what this will be haulin?You might consider Utah for the state design on the out side of the box and some salt flats views as well.

I might be tempted to make up an imaginary state of my own like the state of "Confusion" and sticker bomb it with question marks.

I'm probably going with the generic older logos and stripes. Might even "remove" some. Keep in mind this is a late 80s early 90s body style, they were a little more simple then.

Little weathering here and there too. Like someone bought it, bagged it and had some fun.

I'm currently debating weather I want to have the rear open up or not.. I'm leaning towards doing so

The logo should be "when you need to move in a hurry". :lol::D

Have you figured out a way to do a rollup door?

Can't wait to see more progress updates.

I love it. I have been eyeing a real Ryder van (Chevy G30) that's for sale here in OK

This one I have to watch, I spent quite some time running a U-haul repair shop. Personally I hate the things but that's only the ones I had to repair constantly.

Your build is looking great and the van box looks almost perfect.
