That is amazing work and so far beyond anything that I have the patience or attention span to accomplish. Am I the only one who looked at the brass hard top and went "Hmmmm, I wonder if I could get a full sized one?" Something about shiny brass that appeals to me.

Add the pics as attachments its the paper clip symbol at the top middle of the message box. And yes the truck is looking sick! You have crazy talent.
Thank you I will try that in the morning with a new update!

ahhh... hammer forgings. For second there, looking at that wooden hood form, I thought you were doing brass castings.

AWESOME.
I wish I could cast parts that would be insane!!! Maybe on the next build!!

Thanks

I dont see why you couldnt build one from brass..But this brass and copper isnt cheap:(It would be a fortune in materials,,

Its going to be all brass/copper first then I will add some color once I get some pics of it all metal. I will be going for a desert sand tan color , with alot of weathering..

OK I give up on the **** paperclip thingy:mad:
Heres some more progress!









with the help of that bushing and the other 4 I plan to make for the other body mounts Im thinking this cab should wiggle around just enough:beer:
Also made the mount for the driverside box/ air tank mount..




air tanks will be mounted atop one another just behind this box..
