It looks like a pretty straight sort of a unit that one
Looks like the old paint held up fairly well considering its age
We dont see scroll work done like that anymore my grand father always said when he saw a fresh truck finished like that "they were done up like a dunny truck" I never lived in town so I have no idea what a dunny truck was done up like ????
Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging
Regarding the dunny trucks.
In the 60's there was a company in Brisy that specialised in tarting up/selling old bangers. They always looked pretty but were usually buggered.
Dad and a mate were looking for a truck. Every so often the mate would stop and shake his leg.
Turned out he was indicating the truck was an ex dunny truck and he was cleaning the crap from his shoe.
The poo juice would get between those laminated chassis rails and you could poke your finger right through.
But the cabs all looked mint with nice scroll work.
Good to see you are fired up to get on with the resto Colin.
Unfortunately, when I walk away from a project...usually because something has really pee'd me off, it is very hard to get motivated and get back to it again. (that Case L in my workshop is a good example)
