got to fix some side panels then get it painted. I still need to find someone who can help with the logo.
Probably wont be any updates till spring. I drive a truck for a living. I hope to take it in a few months for panels and paint. It will be debuted at Southern Knights in Atlanta next year.

I'm not sure its the right scale but you might be able to work around that problem.

I have a few closeups for the logo.

In reality, some trailer walls are very flimsy, not much support at all. I've been in dozens of them and it always surprises me, especially the roof, some of those darn things are almost see through.

If you build it, they will come!

Can't wait to see what you do with this Danny!

the see through roofs are translucent meaning it is like a plexiglass. It is designed to let light through.

Just remember guys that the semi interior was a studio set which means it may not have room enough for a Kitt replica width. Might not be able to even open a car door inside.

the car will fit inside but you are correct. You would have to climb out the window/t-top.

I am hoping to get the panels replaced in the next couple months. Then paint. I am gonna make a belly box for the driver side. It will be for looks basically.
