Hey... that is freaking AWESOME :) I guess you can make it waterproof if you really wanted too... with an application of this stuff that 3M makes which seals cardboard and turns it into effectively a water carrying container :)

The question then is what type of liquids to be carrying... preferably a non-carbonated alcoholic beverage... in large quantity ;)

What would be really cool is if you put some sprinkler pipes that fold out the back on the sides like those giant irrigation trucks they use to water crops. Then, take it to the dirt or off road track, and it could be the official water truck for wetting the track down. That would be cool. Too bad there aren't any tracks close by. :(

Well, whatever you fill it with, it's going to look cool. I've never seen a Clod tanker before, maybe yours is the first. Can't wait to see the finished truck, I'm sure it's going to be awesome. 8)

If you do decide to go that route, you can go to http://www.swampworks.com to get water pumps.

That's sweet! Imagine the traction that thing would get with a full tank of water! I think Melvin's idea is great, but why not turn it into a fire truck and have a high pressure nozzle so you can hose the neighbor kids down? :wink:

OK Folks,
Here she is Big Bertha with legs and some walking shoes 8)


With my two jobs I have now, I'm finding it hard to make time for my hobby( The Only Thing that Keeps Me Sane) :/ But after rejecting my girls gracious offer of going to the mall to shop on my day off, I decided to get some work done on my OTHER woman

Well after dreading the fact that I might have to make some custom links for her, I was saved. It turns out the extra lnks I had laying around fit her like a glove. I also put some Stock Savage shocks on her as well. After A couple of tweaks here and there I finally gave her some legs and walking shoes .She Still needs some work, like another center link...I tried to mount it but at the angle its at the link keeps hitting the axle stay some more modifying is needed but I just called it a day with it for the time being. I hope you guys like it and I promise I will stay on top of her, eerrr, ummm the project that is :wink:


I hope you guys like it :roll:
