Kenworth T600


Recommended Posts

This is my T600 tribute to the unsung and overlooked also-rans of the truck world. The humble daycabs with hardly any chrome, that toil tirelessly to get the job done. The kit comes with all the spoilers and fairings around a double sleeper but I wanted to lose all that. 

Cut the sleeper off, used the rear wall of the sleeper to make the rear wall of the cab. Let in a rear window. Added brake chambers to the rear axles, filled the top of the rear differential. Made a pogo stick and airlines. 

I'm fairly happy with the result.

Great looking daycab.  Very well done conversion.  Any plans for a trailer?

I have a tanker or a 20ft container trailer. I think it would look good with either. Just a question of which one I do first. 

Thanks for the kind comments all!

Thanks  gents. Looking at the photos I realised I never posted any photos under any trailers. I also added rear hubs a few months ago, improves the look no end. I do still feel a little sense of pride at how well it turned out because it was my first go at plastic surgery for about 15 years.
