The 3 engineers or clay model sculptors, has anyone ever done that type of work or know how it works?  Does the clay dry over night?  Can it be "worked" until the very end of the shaping process??

I have a few things I want to build and thought this process maybe the easiest to go about it.

I've never used clay but have used wood and body filler to make a custom hood. We then made a mold and then a fiberglass hood. It was alot of work but nice when done.

Here's a couple pics of loadstar literature advertising the binder, Sundance and DT466.

The start of the dominance of the DT-466 in the medium duty truck market for the next two decades.

Had a friend that worked at Ryder in Boston they did in-frames at night on them and the truck was back on the road in the AM. 

Sadly all gone now due to poor management decisions now Melrose Park is just another shuddered IH engine plant.

Dowell. They worked a couple gas wells on my place. A friend worked for them years ago. He's gone now.

Most of the oilfield trucks are white now. So boring.

Remember when all the construction trucks and pickups were yellow or orange?

I still have a 76 dodge D100 that was a contractors truck. Dad put over a half a million miles on that truck before the frame started cracking out. Slant 6 and 727 tourqueflight.

Thx-Ace

One of our land lords said he got a free Scout when he bought his 4786. The dealer (Z and G International, St Joe, Mo) said he could trade his 4586 straight up for a 4786 if he let them keep the Scout, which he did.
