The m915a1 is gonna get a fresh coat of paint. I already have the paint scheme that I plan on going by.

I just wonder what people think about loosing the grill guard on the front and the screen on the back glass.

here is what it is suppose to look like when done.

the orange truck and white truck are just a couple other m915s with different paint than factory.

Looking good already- fresh paint will always a plus.

Are those 16:00 X 20's, if so what wheels did you use, and do they line up well front to rear?

Thanks,
John

I kinda like the highlighted grille effect - makes the whole truck look "flow".

With the grille it does not stand out all my itself with that paint scheme. The screen does it no good and see your point there.
Grille gives it the Mocho look.

Very nice work on all of them, that orange one is a personal favorite haha. But they are all equally great looking, true craftsmanship and show to detail.

So I have decided to go without the brush guard and the back window guard. I removed the cab lights so we could paint the roof too. The gaskets for the cab lights looked a little rough. Anybody know where to get some new ones. Also removed the air horn. Looked like the gasket used between the air horn and the cab was cork gasket material. Is this the best thing to use also would it be ok to use for the cab lights if I can't find anything else.

16x20 will not fit on a M915 as the walking beams are shorter than M916 M917 M920. ( tires closer together)
