FTF brick hauler

About six years ago I built this vintage Dutch built FTF brick hauler. As the original truck is quite unique as well as the LEGO variant I'm still keeping it on my shelves. However, after a couple of years it needed an overhaul since studded models are 'out'. I know, not everyone will agree with this, but in this case the model will fit much better with the other ones which have smooth look already.

But when I removed the bodywork I discovered it still had a Technic built chassis. Both truck and trailer got new frames and axles. The side panels of the bodyworks got new looks too with dark orange tiles instead of reddish brown ones.

Major 'makeover' is the cab. It has a tile built roof with curved slopes, new screen wipers, mirrors and roof decoration.

And now it carries roughly 7.000 masonry profile bricks.
