Well I installed the hinges and doors, and I wasn't happy with the results. :cry There was big gaps in places between the doors and door frames. And here is what they looked like.

So then I decided to make two new doors with modified windows. :winkbig And the gap issue isn't as bad, and i'm hoping when I make the door seals, lay down primer, paint, and clear, the gap issue will be at a minmum. :spit Here is what they look like.

Well I decided to make some mirrors. :woohoo I had a brain storm last night and thought it would be cool to make the mounts out of chain, and to have Peter Criss's catman eye makeup for the mirrors themselves. Here we go...

You know, Big John - your creativity is both amazing AND inspiring! I love seeing how people address different areas on their unique-build trucks, and are able to pull off something that really is cool. Thank you for posting & sharing your ideas and efforts. -Mike

Well I cut out Paul's star in the passenger door for the spot window, and I don't think it came out to bad. :spit2 Now all I have to do is put Gene's batwing makeup on the truck somewhere, and i'll have all of thier alter ego's. :scratch Let me know what you think.

Current Projects: Finishing 2 of my Knight Haulers, 2 new van trailers awaiting being built into 28' scale pups, and also construction of 2 dollies on deck.
Fleet: Right now my operational fleet consists of one Knight Hauler, and 2 custom scale 48' flatbeds. One trailer is a tandem, the other is a spread. Both are polished, with wood decks and the spread is set up with a wireless lighting system and Alcoa replica super singles. The Knight has the light kit, as well as many extra LED's installed. I also have a slightly modified Tamiya van trailer. I also own a Toyota Tundra, stock except for aluminum wheels and S/S hardware.

Well this what I did tonight. I cut the letters for the "KISS" band logo, and i'm planning on building a box and mounting the logo on the front. The box will hide all of wiring...can we say 200 holes to drill??? Please let me know what you think.

Wel I had to re-do the sleeper doors. I cut them out a little bigger so when the doors are open, people can see a lot more of the inside of the sleeper. Here's what i've got so far.
