HotRod with a Difference

I am building this Bugdog Mack as a hotrod complete with supercharged V8, sleeper box. 5th wheel, tilt forward bonnet, different fancy wheels & a few extras to make it a bit special rather than just a hotted-up truck from the 20's.

Re: HotRod with a Difference

mvaneersel, thanks I have done a bit more work on it and below R some of what I've done, remembering that the first 2 photos are a mock-up of what it would look like when finished.






Chromed motor will remain this way for the effect.

Re: HotRod with a Difference

It's finished and looks OK I could've done better but I'm limited to wot I can do through lack of money and not having parts to dress it up.




Rear Guards are mode of cardboard toilet roll

Re: HotRod with a Difference

This truck has been returned to it's original kit form as a tipper coz in the end I did not like and it looks better as a tipper rather than a HotRod Mack. Thanks to all for your encouragement during it's hotrod build, photos of tipper to follow at alater date.
