  • Oscar Pics finally

    Here he is, a bit more done than before...bed is visually done. I need some steel framing around the wood bed, some rear wheels and new tires {I love the Budds, but I want tubless} a headliner, Carpet kit is on the way already, patch in the dash panel where the radio is....and that is about it....almost there. Not that a 62 year old hot rod is EVER DONE. Oh yeah I wanna lower the front 2 more inches...

          Coming along nice Kelly. That cab is really quiet now with all that insulation. Money well spent. Leroy celebrated his 63rd birthday yesterday by visiting the Route 66 Fun Run here in Kingman.

            So what do you guys think, Use some metal fenders to fill in the bed, or use strips of wood on a radius to shape the fenderwell?

            Maybe after seeing him someone will now want to drive him to La Palma....maybe not.

                I like the truck a lot and the wooden bed looks really nice.

                I must say though, that even before I read your question, I looked at the missing rear fenders and my mind said steel. In fact, I said if it were mine I go to the local trailer parts store and look at the fenders they stock. I'll bet you can find some that are large enough to look concentric with the tires and fit the bed looks.

                I do a lot of woodwork but I think wooden fenders just wouldn't look right this time.

                  I agree with Bob. Metal would look better.

                    Thanks for the input Rick and Bob.
                    I was looking at trailer fenders. I have a few saved in my "Favorites" that I am almost ready to pop on.

                        agree w/ bob & rick, also some "cool" looking mud flaps might help with keeping some of the rare rain, or driving over a street gutter (culvert) when someone irrigates too much in the neighborhood , and keep the wood, etc. semi-moisture free...

                          These are the ones I was thinking of, they fit on the radius, but they are an inch and a half too narrow. I could easily split them and add a 2" strip welded in.

                          The rear tires are not what it will stay with. I have new rear wheels and new tires coming in the next 2 weeks or so...rears will be 10" wide custom cut tread tires on a modern carcass recapped.

                          They will be grooved with their custom "Ascot" dirt track pattern....got go with the Ascot since I spent 5 nights a week there much of my life.

                            Some of these:

                            But paint over the K on the Mack and make it just say Mac trucks....or maybe cut the lettering up and reweld the metal plate up say "kMac" trucks...

                              i'd probably go with this, and cut to fit...

                              http://www.iowa80.com/DirectionsWEB/...4%22W+x+30%22L

                              ...since i'm a "KW", not a "KM", and more of a caso price ...

                              i like your idea of painting over the mack's "K". the labor involved of "cut and pasting" the "K", might be put to better use, until you're done with Oscar - but being "done" will never happen!
