1983 Freightliner FLA

You just have a way of capturing that just right vintage look!! This thing looks Awesome right down to the windshield washer hoses going to the wiper arms. The weathering really makes it look real! The steps look spot on!! The widened cab and grill set it apart from the rest! Top notch work for sure!!

I love this build, beautiful. The weathering is perfect, light, not overdone. It looks like a used, but not destroyed truck. Just like you would see still running up and down the road owned by a farmer or other private party.

Great job on this, very inspiring.

It has been a while since I have been able to work on this, but I have made some progress. The cab is nearing completion. Paint is complete along with some weathering. I have the wheels complete and weathered as well.

Did you make the grab handles on the front of the truck or did you buy them? I'm trying to find some for my build. Also, where did you get the grill or did you make it?
