Nick, Great idea and definitely further improves the quality of the model. I Just hate to do that without upgrading the detailing , underframe piping, cut levers, air line, etc... I feel bad about putting highly detailed trucks on a car like this when I know most of the truck isn't going to be seen, much like the under body detail. With the Atlas trucks (20 bucks) a little weathering, the ride height is correct, looks good and trouble free.
BTW, Bill Davis still shows some of the ASM Barber S-2 100-Ton Roller Bearing in stock! for those wanting to go to that level of detail.
I bought a pair a year back to test. They don't roll as well as the Protocraft ones. IMO all these trucks should have bearings inside.
