I’m starting to lay out where everything goes on paper with the few down loaded Mack and some great Daf pictures I could find.
Then I can take some measurements and off to the shop I go.
I will be working on the frame axles[differential] springs motor and trans.
Probable should make the wheels fairly soon so I’ll have those measurements.
Those wheels are going to be interesting, I’ve never made any like this before.
I just love those wheels I posted, will be kind of off road, on road tires.
On our dirt bikes we called them universal tires.
These parts done will let me then know how to proceed with the body.
One of the reasons there’s not much info on the Mack LR, It just came out last year so it’s a really new design.
Here’s my plans so far, not much but this is a do as you go builds.
The plans measure out to 17” which is what the log truck come out to, may need to make the frame a little longer for the drilling rig but I’m going the build the frame long any way.
Hope I won’t need to back up and redo to much but to is what it is.
Blow these plans up so the wheels are 2 7/8” cut them out and you’ve got my truck.
This could turn out to be one wild looking truck or one really ugly turkey we’ll see. Well here’s to the start of a fine finish I hope.
