    They look great. Are these where Peterbilt got their cab and hood lines?

    Sweet Job on the truck. The golf cart for shuttling around gives it a great size perspective. The size of that trailer gives you plenty of room to bring some goodies back!

    Now what? Will the truck go back to earning it's keep, or is it a show queen from now on?

    He plans on an era correct dump body (or re-creation of one) and after that he will likely show it a couple years and find a museum home for it.

    A local character is using restored antique trucks to advertise his dirt and gravel business.

    He parks them around town with big signs on their dump beds.

    It is a sweet advertising gig. The sign nazis (zoning laws) can't touch him.

    An update on the Biederman truck, John came across a donor truck with an authentic 1947 Galion dump body, which matches his 47 Biederman perfectly.





    It needed some repair work on it but it was a good one to start with. He took it to a local shop and had the tailgate rebuilt, added a cab guard and replaced the floor. It will show a few authentic dents when finished but he says he prefers that to a new edition body on an old truck.











    These next pictures really show why we need to add the skirt between the cab and running board.








    The skirt will rest on top of the running board flange, with a rubber edge trim to save some paint rubbing. Here's our sample bend that will rest on top of the flange. (it's shown upside-down...)





    The dump body and other remaining parts will be also be painted blue, he plans to paint this spring.

    That was a nice score on that dump box! Side skirts will look great on it.

    Been tripping over the 8’ linear slide on the Lennox for the past couple months, time to knock out these Biederman skirts so we can break the linear slide down. This will likely be the last Metalshaping done on this machine before it goes out the door and the replacement comes in.





    These two bends were done in the magnetic brake, the final fold for the U-shape is done in the Lennox using these dies..








    Comparison





    Here's the folding process...

    Next we took them to a local machine shop, Triton Defense, to hem the U-shape. They used a knife blade in the press brake.





    The only thing left for these is to fold the top flange for bolting to the underside of the cab, fit, and paint.
