BRBO 2020 Pete wrecker rebuild


Recommended Posts

Had a set back yesterday, while working on the boom I heard a crack. Upon looking for what happened I noticed the spool for the booms split in half. Had to perform a little surgery on it and got it fixed,,, Only to go work on the under lift and broke the snot out of it trying to put a "stop" on it. That way when it's in the hauling position it'll hold another rig up in the air... So now tonight I'll have that to fix!!! UGH!!!!!

Finally dusted off the Kenworth Train , got back at it, needed to acquire 9 Freightliner kits to pirate out the wheels, decided on disc instead of the spokes! Making it a fancy train!

Hey hey, glad to hear ya got back on the train!!! LMBO, I couldn't resist Rick!! LOL.... Seriously though, glad you're back to working on it!! You've gotten too much done on here to let her sit in the grass my friend!!!!

Agreed! If I would have stuck with the spoke wheels on the trailers and truck I probably would have gotten to it sooner but it took a bit to get 6 more Freightliner kits for the wheels! By the time I am done it will be a $3000 dollar model project lol!

Yikes!!!! Pricey!! Can sell the Freightliner kits without the wheels to recoup some of the cost...
