    Me too !!
    The nice thing is the new owner was a fan of the General and want to do some repairs but keep it the way it was , he also asked me the paint colour numbers so he can get the same paint .

    I know it's just a mock up but, you may want to check those drive shaft angles coming from the trans. They look a little extreme and might cause some binding. Other than that it looks great so far! Can't wait to see it finished.

    The tranny will get much lower in the chassis , but then i have to shorten the drive shafts first .
    But i can't cut them because they are steel and my neighbour borrowed my grinder .:tttt:

    I just seen your rolling test on YouTube, I wondered what the build was, awesome man! It's cool to see a few of us building the ugly but awesome Maz 8x8. Knowing your work, this build is going to be super cool.
    The Oshkosh, Tatra and MAN are nice, but the 535/537 is the ducks nuts I reckon.

    Here's a YT playlist I started while doing some brainfood for my build, you have probably seen them all, but it might be usefull

    The Maz537 is so ugly that it's starting to look awesome .
    I think that the nice thing about the old CCCP trucks is that they started building a truck and when it was finished they thougt "damn we still have to make a body to fit on this thing and then they started building the body work .


    The new driver has arived it's the cousin of Duke Nuke .

    Also i started building the body work , first the fenders :

    And the rest of the dog house :
