    What's wrong with pounding out the hood? It's aluminum so paint May chip off but that's easy to remedy and allot cheaper than 5 large for a new one.

    Hey I am paused around 11:48 where you are talking about what is wrong and right with the truck and then you go to start the truck at which point when the engine starts you say "See that took a lot longer to start, it should fire up within 10 seconds" well if the truck should start faster than what it did in this video, then id say that when the truck has been finished you are going to be on to a winner! Reason being is because in the video you first try to start the engine at the timestamp of 11:55 , of which the Cummins engine then starts up between timestamps 12:03 & 12:04 which means not only did it already start under 10 seconds, but actually it started up between 8 & 9 seconds...id lean towards 8 seconds as that's when it first fired and the 9th second was when it was started and the engine was revving. So it might not only be fair to say that it already starts pretty quick, but, when the Peterbilt is finished you could possibly shave a few more seconds off that start time and make it fire up between 4 & 5 seconds??

    Hey there Westen, great to see that most of the work you need to do on that beautiful Peterbilt Semi-Truck can all be done without having to buy whole new sections/parts by way of mainly taking out rivets... I mean, just like you said in the video Westen --->"In the famous words of Jeremy Clarkson...how hard can it be?!". Awesome that you reference the legend, Mr Clarkson, too! Hope it all goes well for you, I know that I have another new and latest video of yours after this video so who knows, that will either be an update on this soon to be gorgeous Peterbilt, OR, it just damn well might be another surprise vehicle to add to the current list of brutes you already have waiting to be restored...hell I am having trouble keeping up with everything you have purchased yet to be fixed and sent on their merry way!! Keep up the great videos guys, looking forward to the next video after this one in a minute or two...think I best get me a cup of tea, coming all the way from the UK and all that! ;)

    Westin does it have a override switch? Some cummins wont start until the oil pressure comes up. Hence the override switch to by pass that.

    Take a big ass rubber hammer and knock that dent out the hood. Easy peasy fix.

    First thing you’ll need to rebuild the hood is a huck gun. Ya gotta have one to pull those big rivets.
