Please post your headache racks here


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am looking for pics of headache racks AKA cab guards. I am building some rigs with flatbeds and would like to get or scratch build a couple. Please share the kit you sourced it from or vendor that sells it. If you scratch built it, please share how you did it.

I scratch built this one. The ribbed portion is from a Plastruct sheet with Evergreen strip around it. The other bits are more Evergreen and the chains are from the Hobby Lobby jewelry section. It's meant to look home built and doesn't represent any specific style or brand.

This one is pretty much the same, the handles are from the Revell snap Peterbilt kit.

Thank you for sharing. This is one style I think I can accomplish.
