Hi Dmjones
Thank you for your compliment. In answer to your question I try not to stain where I am going to glue but if I do I just lightly sand it with 80 grit paper and, touch wood...no pun intended lol...i haven't had a problem so far..
I don't really like using the stains as they are messy but this truck only had a very light coat.....In hindsight my Army jeep had too many coats but I think it's turned out ok.
My next truck is going to be just Walnut and Beech.....no staining...
All the best
Dave

This is great! I was wondering if you have any ideas on how to add a sleeper to this plan?

Hi Ccwilson thank you for your kind words about my truck.
To answer your question on adding a sleeper cab to it then my only suggestion would be to extend the chassis by the length of the cab required...
Would you be considering Making a sleeper cab or a conversion to a rigid/wagon & drag setup version of this Peterbilt? I might in the future. If you do then I will look forward to seeing your post of your work...
All the best
Dave
