      Yeah, Lennart,
      Brave man, painting in the open air. Keep the pictures coming on your Truck. It's really looking good so far.

        Looks very nice. Why wouldn't you just take the cab off of the frame? Wouldn't that be easier so that you do not have overspray on the frame? I am not a painter so I thought that I would just ask.

          Taking the cab off may take uneccessary money and time. Remember the word CASO... Besides most body shops do not remove the frame and it is uneccessary unless you have rust issues like my car or if you want a concours grade car. Also great job on the paint!

              Because once you start taking them apart, it can get way out of hand.... real fast!

                Now, that's funny! Nice job, Jeff, as usual. Of course, the next question will be, "why didn't you leave them on the frame and paint them in Sweden?"

                  Confused!
                  OK, you painted the whole Cab Red.

                  Then masked off the tiny bit of the lower Cab that needs to be red including the Cab corner.

                  Then painted the whole Truck cab AGAIN, this time White.

                  Then we see you pulling off some kind of HUGE sheet of masking tape? masking paper maybe from the Red to protect it from the White 2 nd. shooting.

                  Question: then why is the masking being removed RED and not White?

                  What am I missing? I am sober, honest!

                    Answer. The whole cab was painted with red filler (after bodywork and sanding).
                    Then I painted the lower Apache red, with no masking.
                    Then I masked the area wich should stay Red.
                    Then I painted the white upper color.
                    Then I removed the masking/tape with white paint on it.

                        And it looks like he may be moving it in and out with his Gravely!
                        Looking great, I really like to see projects develop and how each of us has a different twist.
                        Keep us posted.
