Custom Peterbuilt 359

Post by Kane on Tue 16 Apr 2013, 11:11 am

Hi all, it's been a long time since I've been around, doing a lot of things and been very busy.
But I have been doing some building when I can, and I thought I'd share it with you guys.
I found this pic on the net and immediately thought, I need to try and replicate it.

So the following is my take on this build.
I've been working on this for about 9 months off and on, and I've also changed styling along the way.
I'm not sure if the paint will really work on my build, we will see.
I'm not going to describe what I've done, I think the pics are pretty self explanatory.
Sorry for the lots of pics. Any questions, ask away.
Cheers

Original starting point...

I got to have a look-see at this on the weekend and must say the fuel tank support peg is the nicest I've ever seen! Shocked
this will be a serious show stopper when it's finished, keep us posted Kane.

Thanks guys. Like I told you Checkers, that peg was the hardest part of the build, tough to replicate...
