Thanks guys! it's coming back to me slowly but surely! still quite a bit to do,i wasn't at all satisfied with the way the "fender extensions" looked,so I did some bodywork on the hood for a more one piece look. Cab and hood are almost ready for paint,then just final assembly............got a lot of catching up to do,thats for sure!..............Mark

Thanks guys! Cappy,I did the gauge bezels using Testors Chrome Silver (drybrushed) and then did the back faces with Flat black craft paint,then I carefully scraped away the paint from the dials and needles with an X-Acto knife,next step was to add some Neon green (also craft paint) to the numerals,Neon red to the needles with a sharpened toothpick. Then a dab of clear epoxy to seal everything up. I invested in a good amount of craft paints in various colors,personally I like the stuff for certain things,its cheap,goes on nice,and very forgiving with any mishaps!...............................Mark

Thank you Sean,closing in on finishing the Road Boss,just need some bench time! I am now starting to get some materials together for my White-Freightliner C.O.E project. Some fantastic work on this site! and some really good ideas and tips too! Personally I prefer the "real" looking working truck themes,but we sure have some talented custom guys as well! I will update the "Boss" asap!..............................Mark
