Peterbilt 352 Cab Rivets
« on: January 13, 2019, 05:59:06 PM »
I have a current project to marry 2 of the 352 Peterbilt cab overs to make a 110" cab. The issue is where the extension is connected to the original cab, it's difficult to sand or fill gaps without sanding away some of the molded rivets, or in real life, the Huck bolts, on the outer skin. I have seen some photos from some of the builders where very small details such as these were added or reproduced.........any suggestions on how to put back some that I have sanded away?

I'm new to the forum, look forward to seeing what you guys build and drawing from your ideas and techniques.

I'm a 35 year employee of the old Peterbilt plant in Nashvillle.

Thanks for the help

Are we talking a model or a real truck?

If it's a model, you might have better luck in the model forum, a lot of experienced modelers who know their stuff.

If it's a real truck, I've seen some convincing air brushing where the rivets were painted on a 359 complete with rust, erosion and chipped paint around the rivets.
Had to look up close or touch them to tell if they were real or not.
The first rule of the road is:
