Currently building this 6 truck fleet. Not all the way done but over the halfway point. I had a challenge with the mud flaps in the beginning. They keep breaking....so I went and purchased gasket material. Works great...and will not snap off.....here are some photos of the build. I will post when all are complete....on the last one now. Thanks for taking the time to view....

I love what you are doing here. This is a wonderful wood toy truck project. The gasket mudflaps are a genius save! We are thankful to you for posting the excellent photos and look forward to seeing more!

This is a great set of good looking trucks. I like the gasket mod. It is sometimes a trade off on some of the parts. I can attest to what the grandson would figure out what to break no matter how hard i tried to make it break proof LOL

Thanks for sharing your workflow in pictures as well....

Your post is causing me flash backs, lol. A great project for sure. 

Are you having any problems getting the bottom door angle to line up with the angle of the running boards?

Yes Farsider. The first couple of ones it did not at all. Then I adjusted the door. Leaving more wood on that angle until final fitting. then I just kept sanding little by little til it fit.....sort of!  LOL
