  1. B813sx I picked up this fall. Heavy 65k rears. I will most likely have it painted and build a new replica dump body for it eventually. Otherwise, its a very solid truck. My daughter loves it!
  2. Some pictures from inside. A lot of trucks there belong to Pat Camputaro who has a wonderful collection and is a member on here (Patbossct)
  3. finally got the mack rear nameplate back from being redone.
  4. Good eye Jim! They do nice work. similar shape, but taller and doesn't have the holes for the tow hooks. They are actually called a construction bumper, and were fairly common on rw700 series trucks, especially in the northeast and northwest (where they were called logger bumpers)
  5. Besides the paint being in fair condition, there were a few bumps and bruises that needed to be dealt with. There was also some clear coat peeled on the hood. The truck looked better from afar then up close. As for whats next for it, It is going into retirement. I will bring it to a few trucks, and if I am really feeling wild, I may grease up the fifth wheel and tow another old mack to a few shows.
  6. I am just waiting for Pinstriping Guy to come out and stripe it and letter it up with some gold leaf. I will post pictures when its finished.
  7. I can't take credit for the design. I copied the rear bumper and hydraulic tank and connection box arraignment from Lou Deberadinis. He has an RD from the same company (Laquila) that was set up the same way as my superliner. It really came out nice, so I replicated it. It has been a real good machine. I have looked for a long time for a rw with 58k rears and 20K fronts on 24 inch rubber. The thing I cared about most was finding one with a perfect frame. That was more important then engine or anything. This truck certainly checked that box. Really, besides the paint, the whole truck is at the level of the frame. The truck will be completely disassembled for paint. The underside, firewall and under the floor mat will be sprayed with lizard skin sound deadening material. The truck will end up red (both body and chassis with black fenders. As far as the bumper goes, that one shows the signs of having its service life in New York City. Between that and the fact that I am partial to the construction bumper, the switch had to be made. The truck should be done in Feb. or March.
  8. Pictures from my Superliner project. Truck is a rw700gk built by the Laquila group in Brooklyn, NY. Specs are 20k front, 58k rears, 400 cummins with a fuller 15 speed.
  9. biggest difference between an australian r-800 and an us rd-800 is in the hood and fenders. an rd-800 has a deeper hood with lower fenders while a r-800 has a shallow dm-800 style hood with higher hung fenders. Unlike a dm-800 the fenders are closed in on the front so they appear to fit the tire where a dm-800 the tire is falls toward the back of the opening.
  10. I bought a set from Australia. They are beautiful.
  11. I tried a set of those. Had to return them. They have two bolt holes centered instead of the four holes that the b model handles have. I bought a new set of b model specific reproductions from tylden heritage and installed them today. They work flawless...
  12. Do you need to take the interior access panel of to change the exterior handle or can you just unscrew the two screws on the outside and take it out.

  14. Everything is for sale if you have enough money!
