What's up fellas.... I spent today working on a dually snapkit that I had started on.. I've got a three axle Galaxie fith wheel trailer that I am working on that will go with this one... I wanted to make it into a 4 door, and since I had two of these kits I took out the dremel tool and got to cutting... the wheels came from the r/m peterbuilt kit, and the tires are from the r/m Cadillac Escalade kit.... here's a few pics of where I started....

here's what I got done today... the running boards are made from sheet styrene... I plan on painting them with chrome alclad the cab ot the car will get some mild detaining, I'm gonna cover the hole in the floor board and add some flocking... the rear door windows and back glass will probably be tinted... thanks for looking and comments welcome...

I added styrene to the back of the front bumpers to close the gap..

Tinting the rear door glasses will hide the dobule door posts from where I stretched the cab...

Tyrone,

Nice conversion to a 4 door crew cab! I also like the running boards and "filling of the gap" at the front. I am more of a "stock" kinda guy, but the Peterbilt wheels are growing on me... Look forward to future updates!

Really cool build! I like your 4dr conversion and the wheels/tires combo. I'll keep an eye on this one.

All I can say is "Thank You" for doing all the "Think Work"....I already had the mindset that I was going to use the Pete rims, but I had no idea what tires to use...And the lengthening of the body and chassis are an excellent help, too....I've been wanting to do this to a kit that is in the parts box for a long time....Now I know what to do about it...Thanks, Man....Your work has inspired me to go and dig it out for a complete makeover...Great work....
