The picture is on your computer, not on the internet. Only you can access it there.

I can not get it to cut and paste or copy. I stink at this. If some wants to load it for me I can email the pic to them...that I can do.

Man thanks a ton Dick...what do you guys think?

Looking great, Kelly. I think you nailed the hotrod farm truck look you were going after.

I walked out of Lowe's today and there was a Stude 3/4 ton sitting on the parking lot too! Imagine that.

Looks great, Kelly. Would like to see a clear picture of it.

For future reference, you have to upload your pictures to a site like Photobucket; then copy and paste the URL from there onto the forum. That will get a full-size picture posted. To get the thumbnail-sized picture without uploading to PB, you click the little square icon at the top of the window where you write your post; then click 'Select Files' in the little window that appears. If you don't have that it might be a settings problem with your computer or browser.

I'm happy to see that you parked way out in the boonies so you wouldn't get any door dings!

04-19-2012, 07:53 PM
Thanks for posting that Dick.
HAHAHA, I was not too worried about dings, I was worried if I could make the turn out of a tight space if people parked next to me with Oscars HUGE turning radius. Plus if you look close at the clear pic you will see 2 pieces of 2" x 3"x .188 x 20' angle iron sticking out the front of him by the headlight. I didn't want to harpoon someone.

Looks great just like it is. I love the worn out paint on the body and the freshly painted wheels. That's a great look and you don't have to worry about parking lot dings.

your door handle is loose .

04-19-2012, 09:55 PM
More bent than loose. Someone tried opening the door while it was still locked. It was before I got it. They bent the other side so bad the sheet metal cover was twisted off of it so now it is just the 5/16" square steel bar for a door handle.

Now I just need to finish a few pieces on the bed, make a radiator over flow catch can {out of my old brass rad top}, wipers, tach, temp gauge, amp meter, and dynamat for heat and sound and he is done. He is driven everyday now. I have picked up lumber, steel, gone preaching, car show, taken my wife out to breakfast....my daily driver now. I love it.

Very cool, Kelly, it looks great! Hard to do an antique-looking photo with modern cars in the picture<GG>

Just for fun, I did a couple of quick sketches of it:


BTW- you can edit 'the' in the title by clicking 'Edit' then 'Go Advanced':)

Wow Bob, that is crazy cool. Is that a program on Photoshop of something?

Bob Andrews
04-20-2012, 05:25 PM
No, I just sketch it out with my pencils and scan it in.


Actually, it's an iPhone app called Snap n' Sketch. It's a free app, and literally takes about 10 seconds once you have the photo you want to do. I offered to do sketches a while back for anyone who wanted one, free of charge, because it's neat. You send me the picture, I put it in the program, make the sketch, save, and e-mail or upload. So easy even I can do it! That's still a standing offer for anyone, BTW!
