Little red truck, 9.0

Now we move to the bed.

These pictures were taken February 24th, 2014. The wedding was March 15, 2014. This truck is PART OF THE WEDDING! I wasn’t freaking out by this point, but I was becoming concerned. We had to put the entire truck back together, plus a mountain of parts had to be installed, then the truck cleaned and taken to Pinehurst for the wedding. Not a lot of time for mistakes or things that don’t fit properly.

The rest of the truck. The paint looks great, but now the other parts of the truck are looking bad.

Engine bay covered in overspray. Sigh. At least they won’t raise the hood at the wedding.

Back side of the truck, minus the bed.

Frame rails the same way. Nobody should look under the bed I guess. At least we can work on the boards for the bed to make some progress. We hauled them to paint to test the fit, then varnished them 3 coats on top, 2 on the bottom and put them aside waiting on the truck.
