It looks great so far. I look forward to seeing how it turns out. I've been wanting to do this as a future project.

Thank you all for the kind word's .

Didn't get much bench time this weekend , I did manage to get a lift cylinder and safety support made, its kind of a generic set up but it works.

Thanks for looking .

Thank you all for the comments.

It's been a while since I got some good bench time , got the air lines all ran on the rear end , the stack uprights are on and the pipe work is almost done , also added some bolt detail on the frame, and added a cab jack pump .

It's been a while with all the crazy stuff going on everywhere , my wife took over the garage to sew face masks for the local nursing home , I was unable to do any painting, until late last night .

Thanks for all the great comments .

Be safe .

Thanks guys , I was quite upset yesterday to say the least .But today is a new day , I robbed the cab from a Papa kit that I have .

After a little plastic surgery we have another 86 inch Aerodyne . The dog isn't allowed in the garage any more . 

I want thank Jeff for letting me replace the cab with a new one .

Be Safe

Mark
