Just a few more things made up for this one....I stretched the frame and put it together, of course, and made up new battery boxes....I'm going to use the kit tanks, but had to strip the chrome....I also made up some air filters out of PVC pipe and plastic with a little wire mesh I found at the dollar store in the form of a strainer....They're not done, yet...I still have to add some ribs to them....017a_zps21c56828.jpg001a_zps6fbb7f69.jpg004a_zpsf952bf74.jpg014a_zpsce386992.jpg019a_zps6c1452f1.jpg

This truck is going to be massive. Also J.T. I am going to steal the way you made the breathers, its such an innovative way to do that. I am an honest thief I tell you first.

I don't have a problem with that at all....If you can use something I post....Awesome!!!! Makes me feel good I was able to help somebody....I've "borrowed a few ideas, here and there, myself....Really like this forum for that.....You're welcome to use anything I post, Guys...Anything.... :):)

Got some more work done, this week....Once again, I've decided to go with my signature color, orange....Got the left and right side interior modules pretty much done, and I made a TV and computer....

I guess it will be on to the chassis and engine, after this...Then I'll be back to do the cab....That's what I'm thinking, anyway...
