Western Star Large Car Ute

Post by Guest on Fri 29 May 2009, 9:42 pm

Well I've finally decided to finish this mungrel of and this is how far I've got so far. aus



The air intake & exhaust are the hardest parts to do as this rig has a Detroit V6 under the bonnet and it all sits close to the cab so alot of cutting of pipe work is happening.

Well a bit more work has been done and here are a few pix to show Ya all.


Detroit V6 sits under cab & cab pipe is connectoed to engine pipe.

Mirrors fitted & driver's mirror fitted with worklight.

Cab & sleeper lights plus air horns (sleeper inner lights R orange NOT red).

6 spoke spiders colour coded to body.

Horse mascot, bug deflector & windscreen stone guard fitted.

Pins to hold special barwork in place now fitted.

To keep white paint clean I pack it away after each tiem that I work on it so the dust doesn't have time to settle.

I reckon the new canopy looks better then before. All the accessories in the back look great, does the fridge open? I was thinking a little gas burner would look cool, then we can have cuppa's!!
