So...I was a bit wrong about this...but it's pretty amazing. My buddy is not building a truck, but a scale replica of a Peterbuilt 379.
In his own words, "I want to make a model scale like the pictures that I copy of others things that we made with my father in law. The problem is that I didn´t find the real sizes of the Peterbilt so that I can make the accounts of the scale that I want. My problem is, if someone can give me the long, wide and tall for example of the tractor Peterbilt 379 I can start."
These are samples of other models they've made:
That's pretty damn cool. Does anyone know where to get the dimensional specs for this truck? Where's WW when you need him?

There are some very nice nissan diesel inline six drivetrains on ebay for killer prices, under 2k

While those things might not warrant a 1000 page thread I thought it would be fun to have a thread that people could post the small things.
Be it a job done on a bike, or car, or just something...
It was good to see MotoGp back and how well everyone dealt with distancing at the track (in the pits) even with the heat they took the rules with serious respect and no one got DQ'd for breaking them. They'll be back next weekend to see how much they learned on this first outing.
Was sad to...
maybe there is already a thread out there like this, but i have never seen it. On other forums, usually its a lot of fun, and you can get some really good ideas from seeing all the members rides. So i encourage you all to post a pic of your bike / bikes.
also, if you have pics of a bike you...
