Started off with the amt diamond reo. Plans are to shorten the frame, convert to single axel from the ford c600 cab over and convert the truck to the 92" bbc with the hood kit from aitm

Very cool project!! I built one of these several years ago before Dave offered a resin hood. I’m looking forward to seeing this one finished. You probably already know this, but that Cummins would be tilted towards the passenger side on a short hood truck like this to allow for clearance.

Got some more work done this week. Got the exhaust and driveline shortened up to fit, engine and trans painted and built, shaped the rear of the frame to match how it originally was. I also decided to experiment with running some airlines for extra detail.
