Default 6 X Tonka

Doing some messing around with Diffusers rig. Roller build is all his work. I decided to try and put the old Tonka to use.Been looking for a build to use it on. Now I need to figure out what to do with the rear portion of the rig...

I love it. I have a chevron tonka tow truck still in the box. Ever time I look at that box it calls to me.
Now that you are doing one mine can stop calling.
