I started this and it was put on the back burner so I could finish my Paystar.I have two of these 362's and they where both warped it took a lot of work to get them in usable condition.I made a Double Eagle sleeper and was going to paint it like the United truck below but now I'm not sure what the paint is going to be.

Made a front bumper and some boxes that are being chromed.

This is where it is at right now. The fenders are stretched Turnpiker fenders.

Well I decided on orange mist for the paint but need to figure out a color for the frame. I don't want to go with black it hides the details.

I like it. A suggestion for the frame might be to go with a Champaign Gold.

Very nice & impresive Peterbilt you have there!!!

My first thought for the chassis color was yellow, but to make it diferent I would like to see it painted in white.

Just a small update. I did some more undercab detailing and made some hydraulic lift cylinders. What a pain in the neck to get them to work right.

Well first thing AWSOME!!!Second is Orange hmmm not a lot of choises for the frame.Now Tim did a Pete(PACCAR Tractor 389)some time ago Blue with a gray on the frame, its a idea.I do like the yellow idea also.Another thing look at Tims recent 359 Yellow cab/sleeper black chassis very nice.My 2 pennies.Now please tell me, is that cab 1/24 scale cause the wheels look like Italeri wheels and I wanna build some 24th scale COE Petes. :lol: Nice build BTW.

This is a great looking project. The under cab detail is very good and I like the orange, this would look good with a metallic grey or silver frame!! Perhaps also try a white and black belt stripe or something like that.

Just for curiosity sake. Haven't delt with a COE in years. Should the end of the cylinder not go between the two tabs? Therefore making it stronger? Just wondering. Awesome build though.
