Your sprinting to the finish line with a nice looking truck great scratch work too. 

Haha sprinting! Gotta sneak up on the dirt bath..I always get anxious about adding the crud layers after months of detail painting..but its a mixer and they're always dirty lol

Today I started adding the cement crud around the mixer . Using concrete patcher powder w water works okay..would rather use the bag mix stuff .  Ill wipe off the excess , then add the few decals , then spray a dull sealer .

Getting to the point of wanting this done , the squirrels are starting to find other projects for me ...sounds like another snow mover  !

The crud definitely looks awful,  but cleans off leaving a cool dusty vibe . I'm not planning a trashed out mixer , more of the usual dust and concrete droppings building up on a working truck

I really wanted to accent the weld lines on barrel drum, and show off a few details w a concrete " wash" . Thinking about it now..spraying a matt finish before the bird  attack would've reduced a step.

Awesome Jeff! Definitely looks well used on muddy work sites. 

Thanks,  these trucks really got worked but the drivers took care to maintain them . Ill probably add a dump truck of their fleet someway
