  1. Could be International C-series but I'm not sure.
  2. I would do as said above. Actually different paint brands could work different, especially if you drive a vehicle for a long time. So I would first talk to the paint guys you're going to use for repaint on their preferences on particular materal and experience. Very typical thing when some shop preferes (and used to) work with just only brand and has no intend to experiments. Nice looking Vision you have. Vlad
  3. R-model cab is too different against one off a DM. Offset cab has almost different cowl but it also seats much more to the front of the chassis. So seems like plenty of customizing, no straight way using just factory parts. Front end of R and DM rails is almost different, as said above. Otherwise I would ask all your questions the same day the listing was posted Vlad
  4. That must be an interesting project. Unfortunately there's no link in your post above.
  5. Nice scenaries. Once again, looks like you had a good time overthere. That White truck looked very promisiing. At least on the pic, you made it of a kind a typical old iron lover would make his mooth water of. What makes me wonder the most is what could happen to the driver of that bus to take so far aside from his regular line??... Very nice bus BTW.
  6. Must be beautiful and not easy to approach place where you saw them sea lions. Much more interesting than just walking in a zoo. Thanks for sharing.
  7. Seems to me the way is to make those metal wiper hose connectors of brass stock and chrome them up. I would be happy bying a pair of pairs of NOS ones for a pair of tens of bucks. But doubt it will happen.
  8. They drop viscosities to reduce fuel consumption. Might have economical reasons but my personal preference is a longer service life of an engine.
  9. Rest In Peace. One of the good things in our world is when some people put their lives into making signifisiant achievements. And I'm glad if such a man makes his personal life nicer when others can have good outcome of his activities.
  10. Welcome to BMT! From my experience it's the best place for Mack info both for Down Under or Up Below. As for me I would describe me as Aside. But all that doesn't make sence if you enjoy old trucks. B-model is a looseless choice on my mind. Vlad
  11. Great job! Honestly if I were doing such fixing i would worry about the welded areas on possible leaks, cracking in the future etc. So purchasing a completely new cast part makes sence. On the other hand such repair is much more interesting entertainment. And if all go smooth you will be prouder and keep the fun.
  12. To me it seems the chassis mounted aftercoolers take place on the most modern trucks till now. And I'm pretty sure all E7's were equipped with CMCAC. I would imagine E7 having none of that if a non-turbo E7. But I too doubt naturally aspirated E7's ever existed.
  13. Wow, that's very interesting information 😎😎😎
  14. Seems to me a thief was dressed a bear.
  15. Tom, Many thanks for posting, as always its interesting to see the environment over your travels. And also good to know you was having a nice time. Say hello to your better half. A question - what is that setup on the second B in the museum? I have never been a big fan of B53's with those special front hubs but that creature looks absolutely amazing.
  16. Now looks like you are in the finishing lane. Keep on going! Any thoughts on scripts on the doors?
  17. Latch assemblies are right and left specific. The handles are the same. Some while back I bought a pair of door handles off a commercial L-model. But those were not chrome plated and had locks in them. The latches off a L-model cab would work for your truck no doubt.
  18. Those looked like carefully assembled AMT/ERTL. At least when I was looking at them
  19. On a side note, don't you have one or two 22.5 5 hole stud piloted Budd wheels? I'm getting short luck finding such ones in my neighbourhood.
  20. A great story you could learn about your truck. Always nice to add a fact or two to the collection of things related to your main subject of interest. What surprized me is bright colors military used in desert for their equipment. I would expect seeing everything painted beige. Ok, Coronado tan if saying correct.
  21. Seems to me as big sorry of converting that glider into a truck. Plenty of trucks down the street but an untouched glider isn't a thing you see every day. Sure job and history are dfferent fields to play a game. H67st - thanks for the pictures. I was lucky observing the trucks in person one year back. This time I have to satisfy with screen images only.
  22. At least the costs are in a ballpark for negotiation. Adding info of actual location of the parts would help finding a right person who needs them.
  23. A really nice looking set. It seems to me though we should organize bidding right overhere. I doubt they will go really expensive but buyers sure pay interest to them. Good thing Watts now offers another full color set of mudflaps which looks no less attractive than this one. I already purchased my package and would recomend them to others.
