I I’ll be starting soon on my build off I’m going to finish up my RAM Power Wagon then start on this one. I’ve got some pictures of Dan Gurneys rig that I’m using to build from. I’m still looking for more pictures or information on the rig. I’m going to be changing wheels and tires on the trailer to 15” rims. The White-Frightliner will be my donor for the Dodge L1000. I have Dan Gurney blue ordered from MCW for the truck and car. Here’s where I’m at for now.

Received notice from MCW that my paint has shipped and I’ve ordered new tires from Scenes Unlimited. I’m getting closer to finish my 2020 RAM Power Wagon so I’m thinking that I will be able to start working on this build sometime next week.

I’m waiting to see one in person to I would look at getting one but it will not fit in my garage and with paying what they want I’m not going to be parking it out side.  But on the other hand I do like the new Hellcat Durango that will fit in my garage.

My wife has been looking at suv's, wonder if i could pull it off as a V6!   Local dealer has a '16 hellcat challenger, been in the showroom since it was backed off the truck and not for sale! He also owns a '10 dragpack f/sd challenger that hasn't seen daylight in a couple of years.

Larry it’s worth trying. Lol. She might pick up on the noise when she starts it.

Thanks Jeff. I’ve received the decals for the Cuda and have started work on the frame. I’ve changed out the Frightliners rear suspension with a Hendrix suspension that Dodge used.

Another Dodge semi! You have my attention!!

 

Brian this is going to be my fourth one of these L1000’s. Each one is different.

 I’m finishing up the engine and frame still but getting closer to paint it.

I hope to build a day cab some time. My last one was a Sourcraut. I think that I l’m going to try one of Dave’s next.
