Ok, here is my first big rig from start to finish. It is stalled at this time due to time and constraints.



Lots of parts to the engine.


Build into this.



Here is the chassis.


The cab...


and the trailer that goes behind it.

Stalled? That's not stalled. The Chev Titan thats under my desk is stalled!.

Any way, you're got good start there.

It can't be stalled. The engine isn't even wired yet!! LOL

It's looking great Sam. Are you putting anything on the bed?

It seems like a very good time to un-stall it.

Trailer looks great. And the engine, I believe that is the old Detroit Diesel 2 stroke 8V71. They had the roots blower, but no turbo yet.

Looking good!

Nice work Sam. I think it's cool. Why is the engine all green? Is that the way that paint an industriall diesel engine? I am asking because I don't know. I am used to cars with a balck starter and an orange block and you know the drill.

Buck, way back when, all of the old Detroit Diesel 2 stroke engines were painted this color, sort of a pale green. This is very close to the actual color. And it was like they assembled the engine, and then painted it all the same color!!!

Yea Buck, the reference pics I found were ALL green except the belt. Its a little bright, but a wash should tone it down.

Thanks everyone. I have some orange peal in the paint of the cab, and that bugs me, but i think if it gets weathered, it should be just fine. lol

Nice chassis, Sam.

Thanks guys !!

I managed to get the front end assembled as well as the interior. Nothing fancy, just a little detail painting.
