Popped the seat frames and original seats in tonight so I could sit in my truck for the first time on something other than a milk crate!  Don't mind me...I'll be here making "vroom-vroom" noises and g

Those panels look great! That's a really nice red, looks almost candy apple.

Thank you!  I took a swatch from my seat upholstery and this was the closest match in a single stage acrylic enamel.  We love it, too!

Hey there friends!

Well, we got buried in SNOW this week in northern Vermont.  My vacation week and it snowed!  We had six inches on Thursday, but if finally cleared and we had a beautiful day yesterday.  We spent the day working on our race track.  The Freightliner is almost done - thank goodness!!  So, progress on the Mack??  I'm prepping the hood panels for paint today.  Thankfully they don't require repair like all of the other panels did.  I also added a detail I designed and cut in vinyl under the back window.  It came out exactly the way I envisioned.  This coming week we'll start tackling wiring.

We have a professional vinyl cutter (US Cutter brand).  Basically a CNC for vinyl film, yes.  It doesn't print, only cuts, but it has saved us thousands in the years that we've had it.  We can do a lot of our own detailing on bikes, cars, trucks, karts, etc...  It's what I used to cut the detail on the doors, too.

Nice!!  I bought the wife a Cricut like 5 years ago.  A year ago she started telling me about latest Cricut-so  Santa brought her one. $$$  It scared her as it gets hooked up to her laptop.  One of grandkids  has it  now and the wife still uses her old one.  Grnddaughter  is typical hi tech kid so I'll see what she  says she can do with it!
