It looks like the original position of the screws attaching the cabs will match.
I'll just need a longer screw to have a mechanical attachment instead of a glued joint.

The headlight holes on the frame will be a close fit for the headlight piece, as well.

The proportions of this cab and frame combination,
are pretty close to the 1928 Chevy commercial truck. 

I am starting to think about what to put behind the cab. 
I really like this one. 

Regards, Dave L.

The Chevrolet brochure shows full fenders over the wheels.

The ice truck does not have them.

Another possible bed for the 1928 Chevy. 

It would look great with an unusual load.

My friend Jon sent a photo of his latest, a '51 Buick.

This is where I am at with the '28 Chevy Commercial project. 

The cab holes did not work out,
so I'll have to rely on epoxy joints for final assembly. 

Next steps will be to decide on which bed I'll scratchbuild,
and then to final painting after that. 

Thanks for following along. 

Regards, Dave L.

Today I started working on the bed for the Chevy Commercial. 

Going through the scrap box I found some N-scale bridge girders,
and thought they would work as bed sides on the truck. 

I glued two back to back at first,
but then decided to use just one girder for the side. 

I'll let the glue dry overnight before starting the ends. 
I'll need to split one of the two girder sides I'd made. 

Regards, Dave L.

The sides are glued to the bed and test fitted on the truck.

Well, that did not turn out. 
When I removed the bed from the truck it all fell apart. 

As I think about it I think the original bed piece is not styrene,
but maybe ABS or plastic that does glue well with the Testers cement. 

I'll make a new bottom piece,
and go with the bridge girders for the sides. 

Regards, Dave L.

Before I went to the trouble of making a new bottom piece,
I flipped the bottom piece over and tried to glue the sides again. 

With more contact area it seems to be working. 
I'll keep you posted. 

Regards, Dave L.
