Here is my truck. It is supposed to be a modern but yet retro truck. It is a 2007 Peterbilt 379 with a 2010 hopper bottom. I just realized one of the lights I put on the back of the hopper fell off since they are water decals. I appoligize but I dont have time to fix it since I am leaving for World Of Large Cars tomorrow. Anyhow, I repainted the frame on the truck, added stainless steel to the steps, added painted half fenders, painted deckplate, painted light bar with LED lights, 2 orange LED lights on each side of the bunk, took off and painted the front fenders, put custom white mudflaps on the front fenders to match the trailer, and added two stainless fuel tanks in which I added the mounting on the top of the tanks to lower them and make them have a custom look.. I added a bowtie visor, flat stacks, a v bumper to give it the old school look, and also lowered it. I also painted all of the hubs instead of adding hubcabs. Now onto the trailer. I taped off the trailer very carefully and then painted it the color I wanted. I painted the back ladder of the trailer. I added LED lights on the back of the trailer individually. (talk about a pain in the butt, lol) I also put white mudflaps on it from another hopper. Well here are the pics.

Ok, here is my 2007 Kenworth W900. It was totally stripped down and repainted, as was the trailer. She's currently got 271,000 miles on her with a Cat C15 under the hood pushing 475HP. It features stainless stacks, drop visor, V-Cut bumper and WTI fenders. I also added a full deck plate and rear deckplate. We then moved the tail lights to the bottom of the WTI's. The trailer was new in 2008, tore down and repainted to match the truck. Thanks for looking.

Here we go, sorry about the crappy pics, I'm a little short of time. I started with a Kenworth W900L that was pretty much stock. I gave it a 360 inch wheelbase with custom deckplates, Peterbilt mirrors, shaved cab lights, shaved headlights, custom rear fenders, CB whips, and a custom visor. Both truck and trailer feature custom paint, but I forgot to dust her off. :-D 8-)

          Well here it is, I guess better late than never. :-D :roll:   Although some of you might have seen it before, I felt it was time to finish building it.
              It is a K100 YATMING cab on a DCP frame, stretched with a custom built livestock box,  I added mirrors, Texas bumper, ant, drop visor, tool boxes. 
               The pup trailer is completely custom with the dolly.  I added the airlines, safety cables, tail lites, and a few other little details.

Alright, here's the ol' girl. TL Mack Superliner resin cab, KW long frame, Pete deck plate, DCP cabinet, custom short flattop stacks, Pete mirrors, Intl. red paint, bright silver detail paint, floats on the lift and steer axles, single hump fenders over the lift and drive axles, Intl. tanks on the frame with KW steps, I had to lift the fenders so they wouldn't hit the wheels and lift axle. The trailer is fully scratch built. I tis also painted in Intl. red, painted some sliver on it to make it look like bare metal from weathering and alittle roughness, on the deck I used small strips on Steyrene and just laid it and hand brushed the paint to give it a wood and rough look to it. For the load I put a John Deere loader that I used to play with outside when I was younger to make it look like the truck just picked it up from the jobsite, I also chained it down so it wont fall off flyin' down the highway listening to the V8 rumble  :mrgreen:

                     Let me just say,  ALL the trucks are awesome and great job EVERYONE! The idea of having to pick just one stinks.  One thing I know
                       is how much fun I had building my trucks and that is the reason I do it.  This is a great hobby, I only hope that ALL of you continue
                      to do great things because you enjoy it.                  
                                                                                                  Keep on building!              Thanks    Arron

I cannot lock it, I'm not a moderator, you'd think people could read and notice it has closed, but that would be too easy. Any further votes DO NOT COUNT.
