Thanks, Bill. Now I don't feel so bad about splashing out $120 on automotive clear coat.

The detailing on those items is something else alright!

Phenomenal! I thought it was real at first glance. Would love to do something similar with semi rigs, maybe a small truck stop but I'm not ready to start scratch building yet but well done!

Thank you Jarrett. I really enjoyed making it and actually having it too. If you do endeavor to make a truck stop. Be prepared to give up a lot of space.

Time to make some headers. Cut and crimped the ends of some electronics solder. Gorilla glued and taped them into some styrene tubing. I hope they turn out as well as they did on my Platinum Pony Mustang.

I have 3 helpful hints. 1) sand the cab halves mating surfaces on a large piece of sandpaper taped to a flat surface. This will true them for when they are glued together removing the gaps. 2) Removed the useless ceiling porting of the window glass piece to permit the side windows to adhere to the doors of the cab. 3) File down the upper perimeter of the assembled interior to help it fit into the body without splitting it apart.

Bill that you for the tips!!! Very thankful for the knowledge! I will surely utilize them when I build the truck.

Struggling with paint again. Got a so so white base coat down. Waited a few days. Started masking stripes per Shelby spec. Paint felt a little tacky so I only did the hood and the nose. Just checked under the masking tape. Sure enough, masking tape texture embedded in the white stripes. GRRR. Back in the purple lake again. This is sad. The interior and chassis have been done for months.

Thanks guys. The test only used 16 of 20 of the fixtures. I ordered some 6-32 mounting hardware last night and cut my lid this morning. I think I will need a bit of angle aluminum to stiffen the front edge and provide positive locating of the sides. Meanwhile, back to finishing up my Mustangs.
23 May 2021, 21:18
Bill Newcomer
My hardware came so I got right to installing the LEDs onto the "ceiling". I soldered everything to keep from having issues. The lights are somewhat a "cool white" as opposed to a warm white. Live viewing it looks pretty good. For photos I think I still need some foreground lights. My super shiny floor may force me to add some sort of light diffuser like parchment paper.

It's quite the contraption. I thought it was a major score.
There is no markings of any kind on it, so I have no idea the CFM's RPM's or anything really. I was looking to mounting it on a filing cabinet, two drawer, w/like a tote bin of some sort for the painting chamber, but I'm not good with electricity and could not guarantee myself I wouldn't ground it out and have me feel the power of Uncle Ben Franklin's discovery as it shocked my posterior across the sun room. So, we are currently...regrouping.
8 May 2021, 21:22
Bill Newcomer
Electrical is my specialty. You will need to know what voltage it is. The motor will usually have a data plate on it. If it says 208-230v on it, powering it will be a challenge. If it has more than two wires plus a green ground, it may be multi speed. That will complicate wiring it up unless you know what you are doing.

Bill Newcomer
Most everyone has Smart phones theses days. Remember when having a pager was the big thing? Well there were transmitters in radio tower sites that sent the signals to everyone's pagers. My paint booth fan plate was the cooling method for the electronics in the radio cabinet. They are all rated at 14vdc. You could do the same thing with DC fans from a PC.

I have the original kit, #728. It's a different sleeper, but as I mentioned, they're all interchangeable mate. It's a nice kit buddy. I'm not a big lover of the wrecker beds myself, mate. But, I have a few now, so I'm going to try something different. A bit of cutting, here and there, and I'm hoping to create a masterpiece. We'll see how that goes? Lol
