Makes sense, but then it's not my truck

I do personally love the louvred/Venetian blinds in the rear window. My dad had some in a few cars in the 60/70's

One does not want to take away from the pure resto beauty of the truck, but I also think a "period correct" Tuba Trucks Restorations sticker on the rear window, or some other place could do the business good.

You can always use advertising.

I have had questions and comments on my Tuba Trucks T-Shirts before.

Re: tuba trucks

thanks guys... i love retirement, except for that no check on Friday part, I've never been happier.

We've been working on a buddy's resto BBW fully loaded 66 and though the chassis is complete, we are doing the slow battle of body work. While it seems slow to most it is very labor intensive to us. Many hours of metal work and priming and sanding is involved as I know you know...

this months update is just that... many hours of body work.

Re: tuba trucks

another big part of surviving in the restoration business is doing parts for those guys who want to build it but don't want to do the dirty work. We have done fenders, doors , beds and cabs for quite a while now and the best part is knowing that there is a great truck on the other side of our efforts with a good foundation.

here is a cab that got all the metal work done, all the body work done and a hefty coat of bedliner underneath and on top of the floors.
