Very nice Brad, especially the interior. I'm surprised, and sorry, I didn't see this before.

One tip: capacitors, especially older ones, can have some very nasty chemicals in them. Use caution (and a pair of gloves) when you take them apart.

Brad, the Pat Covert Carny Wagon article is in SAE April, 2000. Just stumbled across it tonight.

Gentlemen - thanks for the kind comments and for your interest. This has been a really fun build for me.

Hey Alan - I'm right there with you on remembering the old glass was really wavy and uneven. I used a fresh fruit clear plastic clamshell and found a ripply part that was free of scratches and cut that to size. I still need to do the window in the door but I'll do the same thing with that. I also just finished up the fire wood carrier last night and painted it so today it'll get the 'limbs' glued in. I also made up an axe for the exterior of the truck and will probably mount it to one of the running boards.

Thx Gluhead for the article info search. Now I just need to find it for myself. I'd at least like to read it and see the pictures. Anyway you could scan it and send to my email? I'll trade you for the other stuff I plan on sending you.

Thanks again guys and I'll have some update pics soon.

Thanks for the kind words gents. Really appreciate you guys following along. A bit more work done that I want to share with you all. The coffee pot has a coat of blue paint. It was made from the tapered metal end of a clickable ball point with the cap turned on my Stylus again and the handle and spout are made from printing plate. The wood box is also made from printing plate again and the lip around the edge is the insulation from a small wire that was split lengthwise, the wire removed and then slipped over the edge of the printing plate. The limbs were cut from a tree in the back yard.

Enjoy and stay on board for more this weekend. Bunch more bench time planned.
