Working on a Dream

It was in 2008 that Marty Rasmussen first entrusted a Kenworth T908 to the team at SLS. In 2010 we worked on a second T908 going a little bit bigger & sleeker than the first. In December 2015 we took delivery of his 1986 W-Model which has been a longer-term restoration project which still requires a couple of finishing touches.

But this weekend Marty was here to pick us his brand new T909 that we just completed. He and his driver Rob drove down in the T908. With three Rasmussen trucks side by side we couldn’t help but take all of them out for a joy ride & photo shoot. Those photos will be coming soon, but for now we will focus on the T909 appropriately titled “Working on a Dream”.

The paint work involved stripes and pin lines, painting of redot & dovetail. Our other fit out work included lighted bonnet hinge trim, modified grill to fit 11 stainless grill bars, headlight defenders with LED blinker modification, side mount mudguard steer flares, quarter guard mudflap brackets, 15” Vortox air cleaners strapless mount system with front & rear lights, air intake hose covers, 14” drop visor, lighted mirrors, chrome load lights, pole mounted flashing lights, bullet style roof lights, round air horn covers, dovetail, stainless battery box covers, tank wraps, strap wraps, tank trims, 8” Air Kooled Dynaflex Products monster exhaust system, under bunk LED lights, stainless bunk trims, lighted wing trims, rear bunk trim, centre mount mudguard brackets, rear bar, powder coated deckplates and walk plates over fuel tanks, Icepack 2000IC, PTO & tipper hydraulics, remote control front & rear hook up.

In the cab, 50L upright fridge, Cel-fi phone repeater, UHF to overhead console, invertor, microwave in LHS dogbox, dogbox door inserts and more.

A huge congratulations to Marty & Lisa Rasmussen! And a huge thanks to SLS team that put in some big hours to get this finished in time. And a very special thanks to the guys who stayed back late Friday night and back in early Saturday morning so we could this one out the door.

She is an awesome looking rig.
