Here is what I've been working on, I think I'm going to do something different and make it a heavy haul truck. I made a front bumper and headache rack so far, opened the doors and shortened one tank. I'm waiting on a lift axle, some two holes and some tires. Here's where its at.

Looking nice so far, but if you are using the Alcoas in the back, you gotta steal the wide Alcoas from the Can Do for the front and get rid of the Budds!

I'm hoping to have that stuff here soon, Ray. I spoke with Jamie and he mentined he was trying to finish everything this week. If you haven't made your other front fender, rear section, Gary wallace has a nice set of resin ones! I scratch built one side on my FLD and the Gary showed me the ones he has. Saved me from having to make an exact copy for the other side.

That works too! I've seen pics of his Budds in some other threads and they look fantastic!

Ben's are some of the best wheels out there.

     Ray,

         I always like your heavy haulers. And this is no exception. It looks really good thus far.
