To make the cylinders I use Styrenn tubes or aluminum and Rod the rod in alum.

 Alain,

        Are you going to build the front plow for it? I think you should. The truck is awesome either way.

 

 

 

     Be Well

Outstanding work!  You have made it look like a real rig.  I'll bet if you took a photo outside with the right background you could not tell that it is a model.  Great job!:D

Alain, I was totally shocked to see the mack in pieces. I know how that feels. And your work is much better than mine. What I did was put it for a little while. Then I brought it out and finished it . I know you have to be upset, frustrated and........................................?? looking forward to the rebuild . Be Well Gator

I feel like playing Taps. But every one else might be right, a rebuild is still a possibility.  My deepest condolences.

Thank you friends for your good comments. I started the repair. I looked at the positive side of the accident. I'll make some corrections on the job done too quickly.I'm lucky only pieces a redo are the clamches of the Hood. The other major point is the rear column, it is curved. The other parts are breaks
