I’m adding another dump truck to my Super Bee Trucking fleet. I’m using the Mack DM 600 and Montone dump body from the Autocar kit. Started painting the yellow and aluminum plate on the dump body. I’m going to have to lengthen the frame some.

That's come on quickly.   You might inspire me to finish my stalled BRBO entry - http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/139459-brbo-mack-dm600-dump/

Thanks Stu I would like to see yours finished to you have it looking good. I didn’t realize that the spacing is incorrect on the rear wheels until I checked out your build. I’ve corrected mine also today and more work on the dump body.

Built the frame today and added 22” scale inches to it to allow the dump body to fit. Here’s the mock up checking to make sure I added enough to the frame. I’ve got one of the modified exhaust stacks from the DM 800 kit that will route it out from under the dump body. I’m also going to have to raise the dump body a little bit to it’s resting on the top of the cab now. Here’s what it looks like.
