Whoever did the paint work on those is talented as heck. I'm not a lime color fan on a truck, but what a great job. This Forum is blessed with talented people. Thanks CAW

What I was going for was a company around here that has an orange T800 with a Talbert setup. Don't really care for the cheaper Talbert so I have the Rogers hooked to it now. This was when I picked it up at Dan's house so it's his trailer and dozer in this pic.



And what's it modeled after



I know it's not 100% accurate with the black bumper, but I think the chrome stands out and makes the color pop better. Also I didn't have any of my accessories on the truck yet, they were at home.

All my trucks setup, damn crooked pic 😡

That lime Nelson looks great. However, I still don't get that trailer. I went on their website and saw all the Nelson customs they make. But that ramp trailer is shown carrying forklifts of various sizes. I thought it was used for paving equipment, but then I don't know what pieces of paving models would be carried. Can anyone shed some light on this particular Nelson trailer. I still have my Sword/TWH Wendt Nelson model. It is killer looking, probably the best looking Pete that Chuck made. CAW

Quinella,

Check out the tire size on the Nelson website and compare that to the tires on the Sword trailer.

I have always seen these trailers utilized by rigging companies, hence the forklift on the Nelson website. I have never seen these trailer hauling paving equipment. A typical asphalt paver could never negotiate the ramp angle.
