Default Rebuilding gearheads dually

So through the years this thing has seen some trail time. Lol. After a few crashes it had a crack in the top of the body and a busted hood Scoop. The dually fenders were coming off and it needed aome touchups in the paint. Its now going to be purple, blue, and black pearlescent.

Body turned out ok. This thing was rough. Gearhead didn't have it smoothed out when he sold it. I had it pretty smooth in primer. In gloss some other issues showed up. But it will be ran not looked at so, oh well. Its not perfect but is pretty darn good and at least it is in one piece. Don't know if gearhead is still on here or not but some of you old school guys that remember this truck will be happy to see it still lives.

Like the Blue oval, wheels are sharp excellent scale. Wish these wheel guys would produce those, and other heavy truck type rims.

The bling wheels put me off, see so many/ It's a wonder they get the $$$ for them cause the market is flooded.

Just wondering. Have any trouble with the cops & window tint

Nice color, is it the Chameleon paint Ford introduced few years back. Changes with different light angles reflecting off the surfaces. Am a fan of the it, have a 1 to 1 34 with the same paint.

The back windows are solid black. No transparency. The front are tamiya factory. Lol. The paint is made by rustoleum. It is a newer color they have. The wheels are tamiya semi wheels jammed into a set of touring car wheels. There is a post on this site that tells how to make them. Was posted about 10 years ago though.
