So the plain 15×8 steel wheels with the red circle hub caps coming right up. Stay tuned…


Sport mirrors…

Looking good! Also changed the fuel sending unit because gas gauge dropped to zero when the tank is half way. Now eagerly waiting when the tank is half way to see if it is now working…


Lower steel panels fixed…

There was only minor bubbles in the paint on the left side of the truck but I wanted to fix those. After removing the paint only minor pin holes at the lower panel so we attached few patches of new steel and painted both sides. Upper body bronze paint is original and still looking good.


Candy Ass Truck is back…

New plans with this… new repro sport mirrors and new period correct tires and wheels with hub caps.

Dallas Cowboys…
