Pulled out of the weeds White Freightliner


Recommended Posts

Had a buddy give me the cab to this Truck, but after a few paint issues while trying to strip it, I ended up with this weathered/worn look. So instead of fighting it I went with it. Scratch built the updated steps, mudflaps/hangers, and exhaust stack. And to top it off I swapped in a Detroit engine from the custom pumper kit.

That looks good, Bro... I love that single axle... And the subtle weathering is awesome.... Even if it was unplanned... Great build... Very clean work... And I really like the engine swap....

Thanks man! Paint was definitely unplanned but I just went with it lol. The engine swap was also super easy.  Way easier than I expected!
