    Default Hc4 Tonka Big Tow

    So I picked up an hc4 off a buddy.


    But Iím not a super fan of the m105 trailer bed bobber, but I remember a tow company around here that had a off road recovery wrecker so I started looking for tow trucks.


    I ended up winning a lot of two tonkas in rough shape.

    I used the bed off one, and the booms off the other.




    Have I mentioned how much I love the shot blaster at work?


    And a little rustoleum apple red to match the cab.


    Speaking of the cab, I yanked the dual stacks off the back of it and whipped up my own from perf metal and 5/16 brake tube.


    Then I made an air cleaner mushroom from a 3/8Ē carriage bolt.


    Looks much better.

    Hereís todayís progress




    So half the tire is sticking out. And the space between the top of the tire and the wheel well looks goofy.


    Well? The bed fits in the bandsaw.


    Enter bed number two.


    A little shot blaster action and separation of the two pieces to get the full floor plus about 9/16 (14mm) more on each side connected to the red sides. Little welder action connects all the pieces.


    New and improved wide bed.

    The wider bed now straddling the fuel tanks instead of resting on top. Shorter bed mounts will lower the wheel well about 1/2 (13mm) and leave the same gap as the front fender height.

    Thanks!

    Got the rear notched to clear the bumperettes.


    Whipped up the convoy lights from 10mm led flashers (yellow) and 1/4 inch brake line.






    The height is right, the tires are covered, this thing looks awesome.


    Just need to wire up the lights and install the boom winches when they show up.
