I am on the home stretch and I hit a road block. I recently ran out of CA accelerator, so I picked up a new bottle. It seems like the same stuff that I always used, and it says on the bottle that it does not craze plastics, but while assembling the mirrors I misted the new accelerator over the cab and the windows turned cloudy immediately. I have never had this issue before, so I am not sure if the new accelerator is different or is AMT changed their clear plastic parts? I had been told in the past that Future floor polish will fix cloudy windows, but that did not seem to help at all. I also tried to polish it out with Novus plastic polish, but no such luck. I found a new cab with windows on ebay so I purchased that today, looks like I am going to have to pull this cab back apart and replace the windows. Until the new windows are in, I am not going to bother adding the horns or wipers.


In the mean time, I decided to set everything on the frame and take some pictures. Still a few more details to go, but it is coming together.

I don't go anywhere near clear plastic with CA glue or accelerator as I don't want to take that chance, I have ruined parts with it too.
Very nice job otherwise.
