  1. Rusty, that A/C condenser is prob manufactured by the company that supplies the OEM unit. I get all my A/C parts from a wholesaler in Columbus, Oh and every one has been the exact same mfg as OEM and usually 1/3rd dealer price.

  2. Awsome I'm thinking you have a cab in mind .but overall its comming along good bro ..and if ya dont get a cut a scratch or bruised they say your not doing it right or not working hard enough …but how's the job working out traveling continuesley …hope it's working out for ya but anyways godbless bud and see ya next time

  3. I this will be great!
    It's easy to sit in front of the sceen and nitpicking every single little detail, don't care to much about that, i am realy sure You know what You are doing and this will come out awsome in the end!

  4. Yes dealership are scammers. I have a Nissan versa, I went to buy some plastic screws for my bumper. First set I paid $7/dzn. Second set same screws just a little bit longer $18/ 1/2dzn.

  5. There is nothing wrong going aftermarket parts which have been proven to work better than oem except cheap nock off parts

  6. Dealers always ask for a po# (purchase order) to see what fleet you belong to. If you are from a large fleet you get a huge discount, if you're a single truck they charge you a lot more, 30% extra in my experience. I know bc when I worked for Landstar I got the huge discounts but after a got my own authority magically all my supplies cost about 30% more for the same truck from the same stores in my hometown.

  7. That truck is a widowmaker, starting with the finger then she takes the hole hand. She has been taking life’s before 😱😱😱

  8. Скажи почему когда кто то оставляет тебе комментарий на русском ты игнорируешь их?

  10. My personal opinion rusty is if you have to keep putting money into the dpf system just do a delete on it but i like your videos and im patiently waiting for the finished product

  11. Your doing great young man 🙋 don't sweat the haters either. Keep on doing what your doing 🙌👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  12. Hey Rusty!!
    Be careful about how you go after an unscrupulous employee working for the Volvo dealer, but that employee is stealing from his employer by overcharging you for parts, then he is "skimming" the cash from the drawer before cashing out!!! (or at least I think that is what is going on!)
    I think that many after market parts are many times better than O.E.M. parts, because they have to compete in a "rigged" market, where the dealer can charge you what they want (or more as you have seen!!!!) because they have "the market" already and the company's who are aftermarket generally don't, so they make better parts for less money, that is how they survive the parts market!!!
    I know what you mean about the heat and humidity here in Florida…. it can be stifling hot and I tip my hat to you for being able to "get er' done" while your underwear are dripping wet with sweat, I can hardly trim my lawn w/o soaking every stitch of clothing I have on, so it has to be done before 11:30 a.m. or after 6:30 p.m. or the heat and humidity will wipe you out!! Take no prisoners and leave the blood to dry where it lays, although it might get a little smelly when it gets heated up from the engine… but not to worry, that blood is meant for that engine and is proof that you left your mark on this rebuild!! It's starting to look like a machine again, it definitely needs the cab….. maybe you can get one from the dealer…. it would only cost about $25,000.00, unless you go to the other parts guy there and he will sell it to you for $21,000.00…… just kidding…..😆!! But yeah that is definitely fuct up that people have the balls to rob from the "working man" in the hot Florida sun, while they sit in the nice air conditioning and stealing from their employer and you!! But you have got them figured out and now you know that there can be several different prices on the same part!$!$!$!😳
    PEACE 🤘

  13. Safety first I'm sorry about your finger but accident happen any where. ..you should wear gloves when you work. .we need more videos on the road it's nice and lovely

  14. Hey rusty i been thinking about meet us and if its possible to find some really cheap trucks let me know if you are able to do bussines greetings from panama

  15. Make sure the seals in the turbo aren’t leaking. That engine runs away on you when you start it and you will be sick.

  16. Hey Rusty C just so you know, those little rubber "pillows" are called isolators. They isolate the radiator from vibrations.

    With the inter cooler you should have just taken it to a welding shop and they could have easily made a custom piece and welded it in for only a few bucks. I would be concerned that all the weight will be sitting on that top bracket and it will eventually crack. It is nice to see it coming together! I am eager to hear the first start with it all assembled.

  17. By the time you fix this truck it’s no longer goona be a 2019 video it’s gonna be a 2022 as slow as ur taking

  18. After market is a pocket books friend ! Lol. I’m not worried about it , it gets done when it gets done ! At least I’m not paying for it ! Lol. You get what you want ! After all it’s your truck ! But please at least paint the rims white ! Lmao

  19. This is what i like.. i get to know how to rebuild big trucks and see and know different places at the same time.. keep up the good work sir rusty

  20. When you’ll have cooling problems first thing would be the ebay thing that you bought. I did the same for my ‘07 Volvo . You got a piece of gold there

  21. Rusty,really enjoy watching you bring this truck back to life but you better hurry Bro the plants and grass are starting to cover her up lol

  22. Most Car And Truck Manufacturing Plants do not make the Parts that Make up the Brand of truck or Car IE: Oil Filters are not made by the said Car or truck Company .so after market is not a bad way to go as well. The Way it works for Parts on a Car or Truck Build is a Quote system on supply of the said Part with Name Brand off like a Air Cleaner or oil filter or any other part like a wiring Harness made by someone other than the Said Manufacture of the Truck or Car. Some Truck Manufacture Company's do the Body Frames and Cabs as weld up units or bolt to units . So in saying he should use a Volvo part is like saying pay more for a part that they get cheap and pay a lot more Mark up on the said part + Most have to sign a agreement that with the truck suppler or car maker to not under sell on the said parts. Just hope this clears up the Cost issue about said Parts.

  23. I don’t even own a semi Or thinking of even building one but here I am late at night watching g this guy build a semi. Great work bro I’ll be back for sure!

  24. Your leaving you're self open for a law suit calling the fraudulent and scamers. They charge more beacause they have ridiculous overheads like rent and wages etc .plus there's the exchange rate . The dealership will always charge more simple. Amd id never put ebay Chinese rubbish om my truck.

  25. Keep up the great work thanks for the awesome content
    Edited there’s nothing wrong with aftermarket parts in fact there better than oem

  26. 84 is likely retail and the other was in a good mood and gave you wholesale and invoiced the hoses using one of their repair shop accounts. Not really crooked. You sell to friends cheaper than you sell to a stranger.

  27. Looking good 🙂 patience is a virtue. Waiting the right cab is the right thing to do. Putting a junk one on now, 3 months pulling it off to put a good new one on is just a waste of time. More reasons for stuff to go wrong like the videos

  28. This truck rebuild, is building a solid character in you!… as they said in Soviet Russia trucks build you! Good job rusty! As I watch your rebuilds my Kia slowly turned to T-34 ! Lol
