Title: Canary Yellow Peterbilt
Post by: USCG Travis on March 26, 2013, 06:23:22 PM
This is a quick build for a friend. His truck is actually a 379, that is almost impossible to build from a 359, but with a few changes to the hood and air cleaners it looks close. the tough part was the canary yellow paint. washing the yellow plastic and painting didn't work, so I stripped the paint, and laid a base coat of white, then the canary came to life. The frame has 1 1/2" added, and scratbuilt tanks..(http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab212/uscgtravis/pete2_zps1acff24c.jpg)
