Further Description/Back Story I been wanting to build a semi for a long time. So in early 2020 I started one. It started out as a Grand Hauler kit, and I started building/modifying the body. I was building the truck to resemble the actual semi I drive, a 2000 Peterbilt 379. So it took a bit of body work to the kit. Filling holes with body filler, sanding, more filler, more sanding and painting was the most time consuming part I believe. In the end I got it looking just how I wanted it.
