This looks like a really sweet build Al! Love it to bits, can't wait to see what you do with it. Maybe a truck owned by mum and dad rural America in a tired state, mismatched panels and rims, rust,dust and neglect.

How about something other than petrol?

This one is on a long hold, as silverfox pointed out that the resin body maybe to heavy for the chassis and it will sag with time. Shocked So now I look for a stronger chassis for it. Rolling Eyes

What about a strip of brass or aluminium or such inside the chassis rails. Perhaps a piece of square section brass tube that acts as a subframe for the tank extended through to underneath the cab?

I had to cut two notches in the front so the front of the tank sits on the chassis, will look at add something at the inside of the rear of the tank to stop it from saging. Will also look at adding brass or aluminium to the chassis rails.
