2002 Progress

The truck is starting to come together!  The front fenders are done with the rear fenders awaiting a coat of clear before mounting.  The seat, dashboard, fuel tank, pump, and engine are all complete.  The hood is awaiting lettering and a coat of clear and the running boards need to be installed but it's getting very close to being ready to hit the muster circuit this summer.

The dashboard of the ALF is finally done.   The wiring is the next step.  The speedometer is not functional due to the wheels having been switched from wood spoke to cast steel.  This was done on many rigs as the wood wheels didn't stand up well to heavier loads and high speed turns.  Unfortunately, the steel wheel kit available from ALF didn't include a speedometer drive gear.  The steel wheels kit also came with a new front axle and front brakes, which were badly needed.
