It's been a few weeks since I've checked the progress on this and I'm glad a waited. It looks as if you are almost at the end and it is stunning. To say the least. I was curious as to how you would work out the graphics and the help that you received on them is "top-notch". It's nice to see the camaraderie, and the willingness of others to lend a hand to what will be a truely great build when completed. Beautiful work John and to those that helped out.

I just found this thread and I'm in awe. John - you never cease to amaze me with your ability to find some new subject matter as well as your amazing talent. Just curious, do you plan on spelling Fort Lauderdale correctly or matching the truck lettering?
