    you started this build a mere 16 months ago, the speed at which you have tackled this build in such fine fashion and quality is truly amazing. RULER!

    Sander, Always loved the COE's. I had a '56 Ford COE. It had been a dump truck but someone stretched the frame into a long flat bed.

    Hope you have a lot of fun with your COE when it is complete.

    So nice. When I saw the white masking paper color, I thought...oh yuck. It never even dawned on me that the stripes would be the cab color (duh!). Now I see it and really like it.
     
  7. i thought it would look good :)

    started with fase 2 of masking
    pretty time consuming, it took abouth 3 hours per side :cool:.
    then painted the outer edge stripe (1/4 inch) Black and a smaller stripe (1/8 inch) silver next to it

    then removed the tape on the inside and now awaiting for a clearcoat.

    I like the original mirrors better...and no, you can't have them back. LOL (thanks again)

    The scallops look very cool.

    What wiper motors are you using and if they are dual electric motors, how do you get them to stop on each side?

    Hello Sander, again I thank you for sharing your project with us. Not only have you created a super neat hauler you have given everyone on the H.A.M.B. total access to how you did the work with constant updates along with detailed pictures.

    You have spent alot of time & effort describing your work plus showing the world with photo's of your progess. Thanks!!!!

    Great job!!!

    Hey Sander

    Man that is a great COE and even the model I like most. Last month we visited a friend in New Zealand who also finished his COE on a Dually Chassis, he won best car (truck) on the Beach Hop
