My Version of Tyrone's Truck (Updated 06-30-2017)

Recommended Posts

It's time for a "real" build, Boys.....I'm going after Tyrone Malone's Papa Truck.....Except it wont' be his truck at all....It's gonna be "MY TRUCK"........Guess what color it's gonna be....

I'll give you two guesses, but you're only gonna need one.....:D

Only just opened the box.....My first impression.....Wow !!! I cannot believe I've never, actually, built one of these......Totally gonna "SMASH" through this build, Dude......This ought to be fun!!!!

Pretty sure I'm not going to need the decals, so if anybody wants them, let me know......

Got some paint slapped on yesterday.....A rare couple of "low humidity" days in Houston has allowed me to paint AND clear coat in just 2 days......I'm really loving this one.....You may notice, I added a center piece to the ramp bed.....There will be a box covering the simplistic winch, too....I think it will look better.....

How long is that bed?......I'm wondering if I could fit two cars on it.

You know I was thinking that very thing when I started....If I don't make any major mistakes, I'm sure I'll have it finished in about a week and a half.....So far, so good.....:D

And I was thinking that, too.....It looks like it could hold 2 sprint cars or a single cab pick up and a small car, like a Mini or something.....I will be doing some experimenting, as I haven't figured out what I'm going to haul with it, yet......

Photo Bucket is holding your pics for ransom.

Go into the general section and read all about it.

Thanks, Buddy....I appreciate the info.....Photobucket is something else.....I have no reason to use them, if that's the case....Totally the ONLY reason I had them.....

OK....Here's what I'm thinking.....What would you use this thing for once retired from the racing scene?? Hmmmm...... I think it would work great for an equipment rental place or something......Any other thoughts??

LOL !!! Oddly.....I went to the dollar store a few years back, and lo and behold, they had a bunch of Duplicolor caliper paint...It was orange, but it was only a dollar.....I must have bought a case of it, then.....I painted a truck orange, and that was enough for me to fall in love with the stuff.....Ever since, I've been painting stuff orange.....Even more funny.....About that time the Houston Astros, my favorite baseball team, went to the American League and went back to a predominantly orange uniform....That's a 2fer......It's been win, win for me......Now, it's become my favorite color.....I actually like the stuff.....LOL !!!!
