Thanks dv8v8 and scummy for the information, looks like I will be building a new tray as the one in photo was built for a much narrow cab. Torry got some square step tanks for the B61 which I will be using. got to build a chassis for it too. may look at different wheels have to find the five spoke ones.

scummy I will be doing that as I have three of these to build up, this old jaymar one and two very nice resin ones, I got a full set of rims and wheels from a old R model kit and chassis that I will be using under one of the resin cabs, I have some five spokes from a old Diamond Reo kit going to use the under the jaymar cab. Oh forgot I have four B61's the one with the sleeper as part of the cab its a curbside one that I got from the USA. Very Happy  been buy a few more truck kits of late,think some cars kits may have to go.

Found a chassis for this one plus diff, also found a short bit of a flat tray top, it will make a good short tray top, got to find the square step fuel tanks, Very Happy  slowly finding bits for this one. not in a hurry to build it hopefully some time this year. Laughing  got to strip six colours off the tray & I did not paint it in the frist place got it that way Laughing
