Very nice! Is the ladder made out of real wood?

Thanks, guys! The ladder is some scrap balsa from a ship model, toothpicks and some photoetch for the hinges and spreader bracket that I still need to add to the side that's showing in the pics. I've also figured out that removing the mounting flanges and putting the windshield in from the outside is way easier than following the instructions. I'll also be putting that front bumper back on for the third time.

Looks great, and very cool ladder! I'd love to see that windshield fitted from outside.

Wow, I like this a lot. Gotta pick one up before they're gone. What paint did you use?

The paint is Odds and Ends "Rain Drop" And Tamiya white. Rain drop is pretty close the Ford green from '66

Odds and Ends is under the Krylon brand. Found it at Hobby Lobby. I've heard that at least part of that line is the remnants of Pactra.

Where did the vise come from? I like what you have done with this truck, could definitely see a sign painter having Cragars on his work truck!

Beautiful work! That ladder is inspired. The little paint splats and rings are perfect :D

Thanks again, guys. Sorry Mike, no clue as to the origin of the vise. I've got a 50 year old parts stash. I'm vaguely remembering a van kit from the 70s that had tools, maybe 1/20.
