GMC Astro wrecker using the wrecker body from the Peterbilt kit.  I grew up in Iowa where we had what was called "Farmer's CO-OPs".  They sometimes had their own wrecker/service vehicles, and this is loosely modeled after one that I saw.  The chassis is lengthened and the sleeper removed.  A tool storage box sits between the cab and wrecker box, and a single exhaust is utilized.  Only the left fuel tank was used and it was shortened as well as having a removable cap attached to a chain.  The dash from a Titan90 I built is shown (though not yet finished), but the dash for this received the same treatment.

Great work! I love the dash. I just finished a Mercedes COE in just about the same color.

Awesome!
