    PERFECT, I'll stop by Autozone and get some tomorrow after work. Who made the grilles for the Kenworths and where can I score some? How much do they charge?

    Thanks for the heads up. Guess I'll be removing the stacks and visors.

    Any line on KW grills for these little beauties?

    COMBAT's yellow CXT was the inspiration for this one.The body is Matchbox stock right down to the graphics.I have just under a half hour and less than a dollar invested in it.I call these conversions Quickits.Anywho the pics.

    These two pics (below)are for comparison the white tractor is an HO scale Boley International 3 axle.You can see the Matchbox is pretty darn close to HO.In fact it is real close to me. :D

    As you can see like COMBAT I painted everything under black.Other than that the only two changes made were removing the oversized trailer hitch and putting Herpa wheels on it.

    One more post Wayne. :D :D

    CXT and Malibu grills...

    A friend made the grill for the Malibu KW and unfortunately he doesn't have anymore...sorry. If you can find the KW made by Edocar it has a decent grill as well. Sometimes on eBay...

    I put the pretty Matchbox CXT to work......
