Here is my "BRING BACK YOUR DEAD BUILD" hosted by the Snake himself, This kit started out as a box kit of a sba 377 with a Series 60 Leaktroit and i started modifying the fenders to a set forward axle instead of the sba, I will be Re-Powering it with a Cat 3406 i had in the parts box from an old Snap pete kit that i swapped out for a Leaktroit from an ALF Fire truck.

Fenders have been made out of the kit fenders, but needs the hood built (Why i ordered some sheets of Plastruct), Might also have to find a new bumper for this kit? I think i got the pieces still maybe i can fix this issue of a wrongfully cut bumper???

if you can't find the tie rod , I would make it out of aluminum tubing with rod end joints
