Carl McAbee's Dump Truck

The cab is a modified GearBox Collectibles' Kenworth truck, from which he removed the sleeper compartment, the air foil, and the decals. He added the CB antennae. The hardest part of the project, according to Carl, was matching the cab's paint, which in this case turned out to be pure black (not any other shade).

The dump body was from a Tonkin Replicas model. The cover mechanism is from a First Gear model. Carl then added the chains and pins to prevent the gate from opening too far when the content were unloaded. This model is designed to carry gravel.
