First Over The Road Training truck I drove was a Flattop 10 speed Cat FLD120 Dark blue.

Might want to change your title from 112 to 120.

Looking forward to this build.

Have photos of progress in February but I have  problems between my phone and laptop.

Build a short hood , hence the FLD 112 designation. Have built lower portion of integrated 48 inch sleeper cab. need to build the midroof.

Frame rails are made and front is built to mount Cummins M 11 power.

photos as soon as I can figure things out , I am not that technical. Thanks.

Good to hear your still puttering with the FLD ! 

If your trying to move photos from android phone to site..its pretty easy.  Click on the paper clip below text box, click files, that should access your phone gallery. Select photo and depending on size it should automatically load. Ya just need to click the little + on photo and site adds it to post.

Actually the FLD 112 belongs to the Century class as had a 99 FLD 112 pretty decent truck other than the doors self locked when you closed them.

 

Have been corrected Freightliner did make other versions of the 112 that I didn't know about.

Sad considering I've driven truck since 2001 most my early trucks were Freightliner. 

Then I got spoiled with Kenworth & Peterbilt
