project next.. the replacement....
« on: December 07, 2016, 06:14:33 PM »
well  sense the blue an white a model got totaled out..  its been completely cut up an parted out..   still have some parts left but nothing major....

i have also sold the 79 359 i had, and sold that for cash and an a airliner cutoff for the new a model...


i found this hiding in a garage in nj.. been inside for close to like 15yrs or so...   its a texas truck.. never seen snow or salt...   1980 short hood..  big cam 2 400...  5x4... aluminum frame..  sitting on 236'' wb.. with 4.33 walking beam suspension... 

i have a set of 3.58 hubpilot airliner that im going to put under the truck..  also has a 36'' coffin bunk with a rear window.. trucks been inside the heated garage for years...  the guy i bought it off of did a TON of work..  i have a ton of brand new OEM parts for it.. that have never been installed.. its amazing what this gentleman had...

but yeah this is the next project.....

Nice, looking forward to following this build, I'm sure I'll enjoy
it as much, if not more, than the last.

carry on.  :)

Really looking good!
As impressive as the other W900 was, I can hardly imagine how this one will look.
