no previous part Part 1 of New Peterbuilt truck series Part 2: Airbag suspension »

I guess I should have started this in a blog, instead of the way I did, sorry.
First started the transmission out of Gabon Ebony, and added some oak accents, and the engine flywheel is out of yellow heart.

Now getting an good start on the engine, front cover and exhaust manifold.

Adding the air compressor, valve cover, intake, fuel filter, turbo and alternator

Needed a fan and some finish on the engine.

It should have more than enough power to do the job.
