Cargostar does it again!

Postby R H on Thu Jan 01, 2009 10:32 pm

That's right, Dave's up to his usual tricks. I waited to post this thinking Mooney might first.
Dave has released an International 4400 2-door cab conversion. It is very cleanly cast. Mine has some bubbles under the surface, but not through the surface. It won't need much clean-up. You get the cab shell, interior bucket, hood wth separate grill and headlamp / turrnsignal assemblies, and a pair of fender extensions that mount to the bottomfront corners of the cab shell.
One note, the clearance lamps are part of the casting and are very delicate. Use caution whan painting that you don't bury them in paint.
Very nicely done Dave. Can't wait to see what's next! :D

Dave,
do you have a 466E motor to go with this cab? I have a couple fire trucks waiting for me to start converting and an IH engine woukd be a crowning touch.
Thanks

I have a non-electronic Dt466 around here somewhere.... there are som fairly visable differences between it and an electronic engine. But, there just happens to be several refrence 1:1 engines around here!!

Hey dave , I would need a IH 4300 Dt466 2004 model , to make a copy of my working truck ( Canada Post ) . Could you make me the Dt466 little plaques that goes on both side of the doors ? Do you accept credit card or money order to your name , and is the price in US funds ? BTW , Happy Bday , old man . From your fighting partner . ;) ;) 8-)
