looks real nice,bet you can't wait to put it to work

Thanks guys for all the nice comments, nice to have others who appreciate these trucks. The days of work are over for this truck, just turned in my commercial plates on fri and waiting for my antique plates. I actually oversee the grounds care on two 18 hole golf courses for a living, I drove trucks for years doing snow plowing and hauling and payed my way through college driving my fathers R-Model so trucks for me are an aquired passion from way back and now with an older family I got to buy my New Girl Friend as its called by my wife.

Nice job old man chuck would be proud.

They know I have the truck and have left it pretty much as it was, I do plan on leaving it the colors Chuck painted it with the light blue on the hood, figure everyone knows the truck and it has a nice history in the area.

You gonna get it lettered, or keep it plain?

No going to have it lettered, I actually need to find out if who stripped it for Cappello is still doing it, need to get passenger door all redone after it got painted. Think I am going to go with JO'Donnell & Daughters on the doors.

Went and picked up truck from painter fri, to bad it snowed out nite before and roads all salted. So just spent the last 3hrs washing and cleaning the frame by hand to get all the road grime off and clean it up to see what the paint job came out like. Very happy with the results, also was a good Christmas in my house my wife gave me a new Bostrom seat, the original one from Mack that came with the truck when new and my daughters gave me new bulldog mirrors for the truck and daughters boyfriend gave me new Mack emblems that go on the hoods sides. To say I was surprised is an understatement, that my girls would go to all that to get me those things for my truck with out even asking or hinting at it even coming.

Looks like you got a nice paintjob!! Also nice that you got Mack stuff for Christmas instead of neckties.
