    Nice work as usual TS. When you are ready to retire I have a nice little farm with 4 trucks to keep you busy. :D:D.

    Where at in North Dakota? There's not very many trees in N.D. isn't the state tree a telephone pole? Just joking. When I quit I'm done with trucks and mechanics, If someone asks
    me a question about a truck I will tell them {Ask me tomorrow because it will always be tomorrow}.

    I haven't quite burned the need out yet of it TS, working on it. Just bought a new Fly rod and a Ultra light rig to try my hand at Trout. We have some fine trout streams and fisheries in MO, brother lives CO, may go visit and go throw a line in some mountain waters. That will be when trucks, mechanic and wrench bender in general will be done.

    Hey that's what we say about South Dakota. LOL. Yep, the eastern side has very few trees and no hills. Pretty flat and boring.

    Could you give a quick list of products and procedure you use for polishing. The guy that works for me would like to get some stuff to keep the trucks looking good. We don't have any tools for polishing. What are your favorite?

    Thanks

    There are several videos on line of how to polish wheels and tanks, DC Shine has several good videos. I just bought the polishing compound and buffer wheels as a kit on Ebay.
    3,500 rpm for a buffer works well, DC uses 6,000 rpm but he is a professional at it.

    I was in Quincy Wa. today and saw a real nice Burgundy colored B-75, looked to have an older Peterbilt sleeper. I wasn't fast enough on the draw to get a pic or a name on the door.

    Wonder if all matching s/n?(On axle). Has reduced spring load in front but should reconsider shocks on that set up, nice old 61 with a repurposed wrecker bed. Traveling wrench?

    Added a tank and quarter fender, waiting for rubber sleeves for straps and rubbers for tank mount on other side.
