    More very nice work! You definitely have to get creative on how to hold or prop things up doing any of this work.

    Thanks Ryan.


    Tonight we got the lower hood side plug welded to the driver's fender, then the lapped seams were brushed with SPI epoxy primer from both sides to seal out the elements. John will be taking this to a couple shows with the fenders in bare metal, so we needed to seal those areas.





    With the fenders all one piece again, we took them to John's shop for re-assembly. First order of business is to add some welting to the fender area adjacent to the cab's lower cowl area...





    ..then bolted up the fenders and battery tray.. This should give John a head start on the finishing touches tomorrow before loading it up for the Macungie Truck show.

    Thanks for the kind words fellas.


    John got the Biederman out into the sunshine Wednesday after a long hibernation, getting it ready to take to the truck show in Macungie PA.

















    Loaded up and ready to go....











    Today's pictures from the show, the Biederman makes its debut. Still needs a bit more paint on the front end, but John said he's had a ton of interest in the truck and the bodywork 0 Guess I should have sent him up with business cards.

    I spent quite a few minutes studying that photograph.
    The trailer appears to be mounted to a drawbar hitch rather than the fifth wheel.
    Is my assumption correct?
    Because it looks just a little bit odd to my old eyes.

    The Bierderman sure looks awesome setting outside but even better at the show! I bet there weren't any others there were there?

    I think it was the only one there....


    Stopped by John's shop today, he had dropped off the front fenders to his painter after the Macungie show for media blasting and a epoxy primer to protect them until we can get the hood resolved. Then he'll get all the new parts painted blue at one time...





    Here's the newly installed fenders with an epoxy finish..

    Today we started fabricating the new hood for the Biederman truck. During restoration John had bought a replacement cab with less rust issues that was a couple years newer, and unfortunately slightly wider as well. Since the original hood did not sit down where the bead details aligned, we're going to fabricate a new one that will fit correctly.














    Doesn't look like these are going to fit either. Me and dominoes..






    Hood is removed and a paper pattern taken for starting point of the new one. Slight bit more material will be added for good measure..







    pattern laid out on 16 gauge cold rolled steel.







    A straight edge finds the start of the radius on either side, marked with tape, and measure to find the center of the radius. Then the radius center and widths get marked onto the new panel.











    the panel was wheeled to add a slight bit of crown prior to switching to the go kart slick for adding the corner radius.











    Both sides formed, ready for trimming..

    Just read your thread, that is some beautiful work! Love the big industrial stuff; that's what built this country. What size flathead is that and how does it do pulling that big beast around?
