Ummm, I think that particular vehicle may have been modified by those bored window lickin' Rat Finks over in Motor-T.
Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
Nice! Thanks for posting the pics. Your truck looks like a big ol' boat in dry dock! The effort will be worth it, a nice chance to spray some decent rust inhibitor on that steel skin.Okay, It's finally time to get ready for paint. It's been almost a year in the making but I'm finally ready to have NOT the ugliest Deuce on the planet. Here are some before picks of the prep for paint. Since there was up to 7 layers of paint in places I decided to not continue to "do it myself" and hire a professional. What you see before you is after weeks of Easy off oven cleaner. Yes it does make an excellent paint stripper. Then an attempt at blasting myself. With all the paint layers I was fighting a loosing battle. ( If you are wondering. Yes, this is Bluedeuce)
Drove to Sarasota and found a 1952 STUDEABAKER Deuce used as a brush truck listed at $4500. Converted to a flatbed, that's OK but someone torch cut the front of the frame so there is no bumper? What did the fire department do that for? Looks like scrap now, I ain;t buyen it either!
Nice. What a Dad! Wish my old man had a Deuce when I was a kid to go camping in. Smiles all around!
Under all that paint the metal looks good, no? I want to see this when your finished. Please.
