Hi. My name is dorkpunch, and I have a problem.
Hi Dorkpunch, my name is Patrick46, and I'm a "Projehaulic" too.

lessee...between running my business, and driving the dumptruck, I'm starting 2 additional businesses (1's a direct segway from my existing business), I've got about 5 different paintings in different stages of completion, I'm getting closer toward finishing my hot-rod Peterbilt project, I'm rebuilding my chopper (again), I'm now restoring a '64 Aladdin camper for the wifey, and a whole slew of projects around the house and on the property......so I kin relate!



btw...I was gonna suggest using MIG wire for your sparkplug leads...but you've already got 'em covered. Great job!!

Going to have to kind of rush this now, or it won't get done in time for the "competition"... Headed to California with the 8th graders on Saturday and have a crap load of stuff to do before then so hoping to finish it up tomorrow.

Todays progress. Paint!



Made a cross bar for the engine and taped the rims,



And slapped some paint on there.



Ready for some test fitting and a bit of finally gluing.

Body sitting in place.

Hopefully I can get the gloss black on the cab, the flat black in the bed, and the detail work done tomorrow.

For some reason this paint job reminds me of a mullet. Perhaps not inappropriate for the vehicle.

Detail work... Tried to finish it up before this 8th grade Cali trip thing, aint gonna happen but I'm close.











I'm rushing so things are kinda sloppy...










Meh. Could be better but overall its starting to come together.

That would definitely help... What would help more is not working on the truck right after buzzing around on the bike for a couple of hours! Does NOT make for steady hands.

Well I missed the deadline for my "contest"... Oh well. Have it pretty much finished up with two little pieces I still have to add.

Tried something new too- decals. Bought some transfer paper and made a couple of stickers.









Just about finished up.







At home with my other customs...



Can you tell what's missing? There is one obvious part and one that I'm adding...
