Default 359 Peterbilt Large Car

This is my truck I built 2 months ago. Here are some before and after pics. of my truck.The after pics are when i went to TC's house and made it into a large car.We extended the frame,made half fenders,new stacks,skid plate,visor,cut the tires for better traction,and new steps for it. TC really helped out all I had to do was pay for materials and he did the labor..













And pulling the best trailer I have ever seen.

The silver seperating stripe, between the blue and grey really sets off that paint job. It's a good looking truck, with all the other additions done to it as well.

I like the Trailer.
Nice Stacks on the Truck but you should polish the Fenders.
Its easy and looks much better than raw Metal.

That is a great looking truck and once again Paul has showed what a great guy he is by helping a fellow trucker make his truck the way he wanted it. Passing on the knowledge and helping out is what makes this a great hobby and a forum I am glad to be part of.

Sure would be nice to be able to go to someone like Paul or Travis. But ya all live in the wrong part of the country.

The truck looks real nice... And hey for a little over a Grand and a little time you too could have a trailer just like that one..

Boy there is just something about that trailer... Every time I see it I stop and stare like a kid in a candy store...

Paul, your going to make me spend more money... My next truck is going to be along the lines(ok not along the lines, it will be) of Rod Pickett's truck, might as well, I got all sorts of pictures of it and know the man personally so all I have to do is call and I can get more pictures of it. Any way it would look great with one of those M & M masterpieces behind it.

And by the way I do not recall ever seeing a picture of the trailer in the dark all lit up. Is there one?
