So images show ride height with low pro wheels. Also bracket for cab support. Cut the bottom of the cab so it sits flat to the rails. Also made a hinge for the bonnet and theres an interior shot of how gearbox sits

I'm goign to steal your idea of mounting the cab to the frame with the angle brackets. I was thinking of gettting all complicated..............taking a Tamiya century class floor pan, cutting it to size for the Mack body......................& well just over complicating things. I like simple! I will trim a bit more on mine, (to further clearance motor, & transmission, so that I can use that mounting system for the cab.

Well finally got my K100 parts back from being chromed. Extremely happy with how it all turned out. Now just need to find a plastic chromer to do the endcaps for my fuel tank


Also finished the daf daycab for my friend. Need to modify the floor and wheel arches to match.

Ok so still need to put on a couple of light housings on the roof, connect the snorkels with the crossbraces and fit the square tanks. Still more to get to finish the outside but its 98% done. Now to do the hard part for me. Electricals!

Scored these bad boys for $40 today. Lady had them for 30 but gave her an extra $10. I got a bargain and a half!
