Thanks Steve , Ive got line drawings with basic dimensions for both trucks so i knew it was going to be a bit bigger than the 509 . It didnt really become apparent till last night when I got the back end in and stood back and looked at it just how much bigger its going to be .
Big is good Drool
Cheers
Marty

Another small step putting another piece of the puzzle in place . Trans cooler and back platform sitting in place . Current rops wont work , but close enough to see where its going .

Marty that is gonna look great, you need to take time off from your real job and finish this project. Maybe The Q can supplement your income while taking time off, I believe he has a money tree right outside his living room window and he is always picking from it when he’s not sleeping.

Well, that's better than you picking your nose all the time. Quit stalking me. I'm home now and tired. Missed the delivery of that Teckno Mack. It's at Post Office. Can't wait to show it off. CAW

Q I’m not picking my nose I’m scratching it because it’s always itchy. How can you be tired when you sleep 23 hours a day, stop complaining and get that Mack F700 to that 02857 zip code. Call me if you forgot where your Post Office is located. Hope you had fun on your time off.
02857 and send it Priority please

Marty you are going to have to put 2 of the Diecast Masters Bobs in the cab to drive that beast, looks great. Has The Q sent you any compensation yet for doing more work on your rig?
