    Nice doors Chuck are those going on your truck?
     
  13. Bought this old truck a couple of years ago, and upon inspection relized it has something under the old paint. A few minutes with a scotchbrite and this old sign appeared. Found out that the 4 digit phone number went away in 1955.

    Nice work as this may be, but this is NOT hand laid leaf...this is a sheet of laminated gold in vinyl.
