Thanks Gator

Trial fit up of transporter #1& #3. Next will be to run all the hydraulic lines for both transporters. I’m going to make up the elevation difference between the two in the rigging supporting the vessel. 

Thanks for everyone’s comments.

The things you are plumbing now looks like air brake chambers to me, there is one for each wheel pair.
The shock absorber looking thingy further inside the knee of the suspension arms is the hydraulic ram for hight adjustments and leveling.

Here are a couple of pictures to show what I mean, first the hydraulic ram.

And here you can see the air brake chambers between the wheels, there are no spring brakes on these, only a single air chambercompatible-with-goldhofer.jpg.422cbf1a21d7e11568d81c94f96a6112.jpg

Thanks Joe, I think I’m going to have to make a special Custom box for it to be able to transport all of it to shows. That is when ever Model show’s are allowed again.
