here are pictures of my kw kinghauler redone to look like a kenworth w900b ,i replaced plastic grille with aluminum kw grille ,i used chrome screen to resemble grille mesh ,i replaced plastic breathers with solid aluminum ones and i added the kw emblem plus the full kenworth nameplate on the side of the hood and i replaced bumper with custom aluminum one with the name of my truck cut out in it and i added l.e.d. lights to the bumper more pics of the custom rear bumper to follow as soon as it is installed and lit up..thank you for looking:)

also the cb antenae is rc tubing with the springs from the ball point pens attached so they jiggle when the truck idles with the vibration unit and they sway in the wind just like the real ones thank you for looking:)

Ages ago I drove a '84 Olds Cutless 4 door. Don't get excited, it was a v6 grandma's car.

Anyway, I've always thought shots like the one above looked cool, just the parking lights on.


Well I was taking out this really hot gal for the first time, and parked the Olds in front of her place, leaving the parking lights on.


She comes out, rolls her eyes, and says your POS car doesn't even have working headlights?!?!??!
