Re: 1958 Apache 38 Dually Dump Project

I like the idea of a blue upper / silver lower. that's just the reverse of what most people would do. how about printing a B&W picture of the truck & then taking some colored markers to it to get an idea.

Re: 1958 Apache 38 Dually Dump Project

Did you use part of the bread van frame ?
Beautiful truck 😊
I have a 38 dually too and need to do a custom frame like yours
Any info you could provide would be sweet 🇨🇦
Iíve read this thread a few times but still not clear on the frame .

I did think about using the breadvan frame...parallel, straight, heavy duty frame rails would have worked well. It was just easier at the time to trade the van off in it's entirety. Depending on your end goals, making your frame from scratch might be the easiest approach.

Re: 1958 Apache 38 Dually Dump Project

Looks great . Crazy the amount of time body work takes . And you started with a good truck! It's amazing what we have to fix up here in the rust belt. You guys scrap stuff we would think is gold daily.

Keep up the great work.

Re: 1958 Apache 38 Dually Dump Project

Me personally, I would do metal flake gold and some black pin striping on there.

Yep, lots of time. Scott's doing it right though.

I think it would really make the truck unique especially with the right pin-striping.
