I've been concentrating on getting the old wrecker ready for her first outing at Lebanon this coming week. Got some color shot on the body work, the interior is started and she is now fully drivable.






Still have to finalize parts design for the boom rigging and winch installation plus a ton of detail and touch up work along with weathering.

I found a pair of lenses in the parts box from an old Axial light set that are the right diameter. Need to pick up some aluminum paint for the bezels before I glue them on. King Hauler fog light lenses are just a little small.

Well that kind of answered what I just put on my thread, if I put KH fog lite lenses in bezels in mine they'd almost be to big.

Possibly not, looking at the nose on picture of the actual wrecker, I picked a pair of lenses that will sit flush on top of the bezels since they are pretty thick, OD of lens = OD of bezel. If you try to put the king hauler lenses into the bezels they are just a fraction too big to fit. We might be pretty darn close.

Put it in good lighting and it doesn't look all that tired...

Thumbs up Re: Old tired wrecker

I've been following this for some time so thought I'd stop in to say that the color looks dead on Dennis and want to know if you plan on any air horns?

So unique and one of a kind.

Thanks Jeff! Yes, air horns, clearance lights, headlights and a bunch more stuff are all in the works.
