Last fall I showed the beginning of paint work on my C-Cab. Here's where we are now.
A couple more
And a couple
That looks fantastic! Is the body and old one or did you build it? I recognize the rear door windows as those from a regular C cab truck cab. Nice job.
Good eye Justin! We used to make the TT C-Cab upper rear window panel. So when I built this body I just turned the dies long way and stamped them in the panels. I built this body in 1998. Just took a while to get it finished. It's all oak, stained and varnished. All panels are aluminum as are the fenders and all the rest of the metal work. The panels were painted on the inside and then put on the skeleton.
Very nice workmanship.
Nice ..... You nailed the look on the oak stain. I used to use an "English Oak" stain by Sherman Williams that gave the same old look to the wood. But they do not make it anymore. What brand stain did you use .???
That's lovely. It's going to look great on a chassis.
That is beautiful!
(the wheels look a little small though, you may get stuck in a pothole)
The wood was stained with Pratt & Lambert "Oriental Walnut" and varnished with Man-O-War Marine Spar Varnish. This was 18 yrs. ago. Today I would use Minwax Dark Walnut, seal the grain and use DuPont Chroma Premier 72500S. Times have changed and so have materials. Some better-some not. Anyway, thanks for all the nice comments. Here's the chassis it's going on Steve, and Dennis I'm working on that wheel issue. Currently working on the transmission and getting the engine assembled and finishing the paint on fenders and such.
And the back end.
