California Hauler Peterbilt 359

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I'm starting a semi buijld of a California Hauler 359 Peterbilt. I was wondering if anyone has done if of these before and customized it. What I'm trying to accomplish is to stretch the frame and maybe some other mods. I was wondering what to use for the stretch to glue in and what to use for the drive shaft. Also the plate on the top to cover the stretched part. If anyone has done one of these before or has a video or pics I would greatly appreciate the advise and help on how and what to use for this project.

For the drive shaft take the kit driveshaft and get a piece of either brass or aluminum tubing that it slides into. Cut the kit part in half and slide an end into each end of the tubing. Measure how long the shaft needs to be and cut the tubing so that the entire length if your part is what you need. This will include some of the kit part sticking out of either end of the tubing. glue the ends in the tubing and you have your drive shaft.
