Still pondering the thought of making it a flatbed trailer simulating a wideload AC unit on the bed chained down.

Also a little update on the OP.
Ya, a flat bed with your water cooling gear mounted on it
your 1/4 inch tubes could be the air lines between cab and trailer and the fan wire could be trailer lights

After seeing that wood glued together it makes me want to make something similar. What are the dimensions of the wood that you used so that we can get an idea of scale? For all we know it could be a foot long you know lol.

I'll have to measure it again.
I think it's 21"L x 9"w x 10"H I had to add some more wood to it.

Total length will 48"L x 9"W x 12"H
The frame will be made of 3/4" square tubing (if it looks to scale)
I will have to make some kind of handles system that will slide in to make it easier to handle.

Maybe you can make some sort of motherboard tray to make it easier for you to work on the components. If I were to be making it then I would use some sort of drawer sliding mechanism and attach it to an actual motherboard tray so that the tray will slide out easy. Just an idea. Take it or leave it lol.

Oh dear. Haven't seen a 379 Pete since my dad drove one. Similar setup as yours but his was fire engine red and had a 460 Cummins sitting on a 300" wheelbase. I remember him being in 14th gear pulling mountains with 27K on the deck and having to upshift at 100mph. Surprised a mustang or 2 on the highway. He always knew when to back off though.
And I quote: "just about the time the hair on the back of my neck stands on end"

NYC to Cleveland, OH was a 6 hour flight depending on traffic and time of day. If any of you have ever made that trip, you can surely appreciate it.

Subbed for sure!

Fannblade have you thought about just making a straight truck with a dry reefer unit on the back? i.e. no trailer, I saw in your sketching that you had thought about using the reefer unit to house your radiator, that looked good

smasherbasher trucks do a lot of things really well, stopping quickly at high speeds is not one of them, my older brother used to bump his truck out of gear coming down hills, that cane get scary

Actually I still may go that way. Not sure how well the H50 can handle hoses that long. What really scares me is the thought of doing another custom loop,I have a bad feeling that may happen. Don't tell my wife!!
She's definitely NOT on board with this one. So I told here but, "I have everything in stock". She's not buying it!!
