Slow but sure I managed to get the floor done in the Brockway I am real happy with the results. Hopefully in a few weeks after I get through with a few medical issues I'll get the truck outside pressure wash the rest of the undercarriage and I will start on the bodywork.
Yesterday I took the Brockway pick up out for a ride. Couldn't resist taking this picture in a empty parking lot with a nice background behind it. I still can't believe the amount of attention I get when I drive this Brockway pickup

(Remember a picture is a thousand words)

Thanks guys for the comments. Glen the collar is forest green and it is in the spray can.
Anytime I have an opportunity to go to a dollar store. You can always get crayon spray for $.99 so I bought six cans of forest green and six cans of prima and six cans of Goss black. They always come in handy. Tom I want to take the fifth wheel off and rear fenders off and get it back into the shop and remove the rear wheels and get the chassis ready for paint. Also I am going to start bodywork on the back of the cab. Thanks Tony

Well guys I am back. It was a tough five weeks. The surgery went well and I will be better than new. I hired a helper to help me around the house and to try to keep the Brockway Project moving. So this week we put a couple hours in and I cut all of steel off the back of the Brockway. I just can't do any heavy lifting for a while but using the cutting torch was no problem and my helper loaded the trailer with the steel. This week I will pressure wash the chassis and get it back into the shop and have my helper wire brush everything down get the rear of the truck up on Jack stands and remove rear wheels.
Anyway thanks for looking Tony

Glad to hear you're doing better Tony! So I'm guessing you and Terry will be driving the 358 to Cortland this year? :D :D :D

Tom thank you for your reply. I don't think the 358 will see Cortland this year.
But next year I will driver it from Florida to Cortland. :D :D
:roll: It sure felt good to spend a day in the shop. After spending Saturday & Sunday completing all the cuts around the pool it feels good to have that behind me and tomorrow the sod and some landscaping will be going in pool complete.
Got into the shop really early looked around and realize I had a hell of a mess and tools all over the place so I spent an hour and put everything back in its place.
I realized that all my spray equipment was still packed away in boxes and I did not have a bench for the spray equipment to work on so I built one with left over lumber that I had hanging around. Then I went onto the right front Fender. I welding a pieces of steel on the inside and then on the other side I cut out all the bad stuff and paint it wit black rust oleum. Working with 14 gauge steel cutting and shaping it came out pretty decent here are a few pictures. Thanks for looking Tony

Back to working on the front fenders finally completed the inside of the fenders.
Decided to try something different with splatter paint splatter paint is what they used inside of the trunk and it comes in several different color combinations I decided to use black and gray. The great thing about it that it hides all the imperfections in the bottom of the fenders.
:roll: So I really like the texture I was hoping that it would be more black than gray but it wound up being more gray than black. They recommend putting clear over it I will see what it looks like tomorrow after the clear is on.

:arrow: Boy do I hate body work. :roll:
I didn't get much work done today. The temperature in the shop today was 108° it was totally impossible to work specially do bodywork.
But I did manage to get a little done. I used a new type of body filler that is called
All metal. It drys like steel very hard to work with actually got to knock it down with the grinding disc wit 40 grit paper and then use the board sander 40 grit and then a light coat of regular body filler and slick sand primer

Lookin good Tony!!!

It's great when someone tries a new product out and posts the results. Plus taking pictures of the product itself helps in trying to find it. Thanks Tony.

Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to work on my 152.

Hope to catch you at the show.
