B-67 Update:

The frame is leveled and squared upside down on stands in the middle of

the shop floor.

The front springs and axle are bolted in place.

The rear air suspension cross member is in place, and the removeable parts are all

sandblasted and epoxy primed to match the frame and axles.

Rear spring hangers are going in, and the rear springs are next.

The cab is almost back in one piece. The donor roof and back panel are all

blasted and primed and fit in place. I should be welding tomorrow.

I saw a color on the cover of "Classic Trucks" magazine this month. It's a street rod

magazine. Anyway the color is a DuPont sage green on a late 40's Ford F-1. It might look real

good on a B Mack. especially with a red frame and running gear.

I'm having a little trouble with my original choice of red with black running gear (the factory original combo).

Seems everybody has the red color.

Red is the color of my company trucks, although lately my own work vehicles have been white or gray.

So - I'm looking around.

Pretty good week, all in all.

One of the new Pete's that came in a couple of weeks ago was sort of...lime green I guess,very bright green,and it looked really good. I still think it would look better with black fenders though.

This sage green I'm thinking of is not bright at all.

And I think it would look good with dark green or black

fenders.

I would also paint the interior in the sage green if I used it.

When Jaime Samuell did his blue B-85, he did the interior in the same blue,

and used black fenders. It's a real sharp truck.

But - I'm still thinking.

Is that like Mack green? Mack's used to come in 3 colors,red,green,and blue,all with green interiors. Green was the popular color around here,I thought that was the only color they came in for years.

Actually the color is a light grayish green.

It's a little hard to describe, but it's no where near as dark

as the original Mack green.

Very antique looking.
