    I’m going to have to make a Smuggy galery for all the pics, but until I can, here’s a few highlights.

    @AceE Here’s a litttle better detail.

    It’s pretty amazing. It becomes “chrome” at 3 feet.

    Best of Show winner. That ‘61 trailer is called a Trail-or-Boat. The top of the trailer is actually a removable boat. B1D60BE4-82FB-4253-B55F-71FCA61AF807.jpeg 662F2C44-A090-42C6-9DDA-B282D0B11774.jpeg C91DF92A-FC18-4BE3-8385-4895A9CFCD66.jpeg

    The ‘64 Westie is actually his DD, too.

    how did he blend it onto the front end since that raised section contours around the edge to become a large area on front?

    I actually got me some of that chrome vinyl decal to try out on something. not enough for the GMC, just enough to test and see how it holds up in the sun.

    I can't remember. Is it in my last shot from the Riverwoods show? I don't think so, and I can't remember from yesterday.
    Damn, I'm sorry. You even asked me yo check. I did remember to get more detail! :baldy

    I am guessing this is a 70s build.
