Re: tuba trucks

Real neat Clem.

As mentioned on FB, I LOVE that Tuba Trucks tailgate plate too.

Kind of signs off the project in a way.

Very impressed.

Re: tuba trucks

Looks great Clem . The 67-72 rear bumper finishes the look off really well . That's why I have gone that route as well . Like I said on FB the badge looks nice and subtle . I guess you painted the badge to match the colour , or was it made to match the colour.

Re: tuba trucks

Clem, got to say, glad we went with 67/72 rear bumper and I love your subtle little logo badge it just finishes off the tailgate. Also back up lights converted to direction indicators exactly what I wanted. keep at it. Thanks

Thanks guys, bit overwhelmed here. Makes me want to build another one of these hotrod trucks. Mainly because I want one myself.

To chevyjim... I want to do a green and white also. it is my favorite color for these trucks.

To Bomp... when Michael decided he wanted a 67-72 bumper we just ordered all the parts from LMC, right down to the hardware. I really like the look.

To the guys that liked the badge... that is a die-cast and chrome plated emblem that I had made from the company I used to work for. they are similar to what car dealers used back in the day. I fill the relief with body color to match the color of the trucks we build. The only way to get one is to have us build or paint your truck. Sorry but those little guys were expensive. but if some want a tubatrucks decal, I got 'em. send addresses, either pm me or email, clem@tubatrucks.com

Thanks a million guys. we're very close to completion on the tinatruck and we will post up pics again soon.

Re: tuba trucks

We've got some stickers coming about midweek and I will send them out to you guys that wanted them. The tina truck got her carpet yesterday and scottybob did a fine job, front alinement tomorrow and a few other details this week and she'll be ready to go... hopefully.

but this morning a few old truck parts were delivered. A buddy in Little Rock and I struck a deal on them and he brought up a trailer load. This load was 50's stuff and there is 2 more loads coming. Then a couple of loads of 60's stuff... geez, I need a bigger place. So soon, when its all separated and organized I will figure out what to do with it all... Bomp, I need your help, please...

Re: tuba trucks

Back on page 7 is a farm truck named 'Maude'. This much loved truck was a challenge because of the modest budget and big expectations. Sometimes we have to put our restoration mentality on hold and figure out how to build safe, dependable and reasonably good looking trucks without breaking the budget. Maude is the experiment to do that.

The original cab was the first consideration, everything was bent, rusted and in such bad condition, no way could it be brought back without tons of hours. So, we swapped in another cab. Still needing inner and outer rockers and cab corners plus rear braces, it was at least a lot closer. We did sub in Maude's original dash and used bits and pieces from her floors... check out the seatbelt extensions in the original cab.
