Oh E-man, I forgot to look at the paint can. I'll keep trying to get you a name.
Here's some pictures of the passengers door bottom hinge. I'm pretty sure this is from the door swinging open while roaring down the road. The first picture is the broken hinge and the second is after it was fixed.
I found where the Previous Owner had mounted some brackets on the firewall, to hold the battery, so I set a 6 volt battery in them and wired up the old headlights. There's a '57 Dodge light switch on the dash now that runs the lights.
Then I remembered that the Grapes of Wrath people wanted me to take out the windshield, so the actors could sit in the truck and still project their voices to the audience. Out came the windshield.

I loaded her up and took her to town. pic one.
The second picture collage is me unloading it in a warehouse where they are going to practice for a while.
The third picture is some of the cast dressed for their part and showing off. Publicity stunt.
I'm having a terrible time with the pictures. Sorry.

Here's the promised picture of the truck and some of the cast of actors.

I think this is the end of first segment of my double build.
