    I registered it for the 1,000 mile a year exemption. I might put 500 miles a year on this truck.

    What a great documentation of your build! This will help others, it is nice to share :) Do you have a color scheme chosen for cab & frame?

    Pretty kool truck, what holds your fuel tank covers on ? What will you pull with this truck? Can't wait to see the final paint, love white - orange or white - red combo.

    Thank you. You can use Velcro or double sided tape to hold them down. I don't know if I'm going to use the covers. I think it looks better without them, we'll see. I might get a gooseneck race car trailer and pull my race car with it. I'm mostly building the truck for shows and parades, its something I've always wanted to do, build a custom Peterbilt :D
