I painted the cab of my restoration project on a jig, and both the painters and I liked that a LOT. I might suggest dressing as much of the cab as you can while its on that jig before reinstalling it. It looks amazing, by the way! I had all the dash electrical, glass, cab lights, horns, some of the interior, etc. all in before plunking it back on. You are going to be in and out of that cab 1,000 times before its done. You'd like to do as much of that as possible without climbing up into it.

For those interested in my Biederman progress, the pictures show the cab on its way home. I finished the radiator shell and have it mounted and the cab is sitting in my shop awaiting installation. Maybe between the show schedule and trips to Australia, I'll get it installed. All of the sheet metal is done except the fenders. I have to mount the cab to fit the fenders. The tabs that attach them to the bumper and running boards are gone so they need to be fabricated. My fenders are rough so will take some work. I can't wait to set the cab on the frame. Once I do that I'll feel like I'm on the way. Stay tuned.

John, your Biederman is beautiful and has sure come a long way from the "before" photo that Jesse Walter sent me several years ago. Please keep us posted on your progress.

Dan,

I forgot to say with your question about the generator, that as far behind as the technology is on this truck, the fenders come off with 4 bolts and elastic stop nuts to make it easy to service it. They did think that far ahead.

You can pull that generator. I probably should have put it inside in York but we are full now. I also live 2 1/2 hours from York and have a lot of other stuff to get up there. Since there is interest, I'll post some more as I move along. I suspect there will be more interest when I take it to a show since most people have no idea what it is. What I really need is a month of uninterrupted time to move on it.

I see a gear driven generator. Is it replaceable without dropping the exhaust pipe . I can visualize myself leaning over the frame and enjoying the simplicity for an hour or so. Remember a cab is a cab with the same old instruments, hides the real working mechanism.

John, that is as worthy of showing as many completed trucks are. Bill it as a nekid truck, people will love to come see the nekid truck. LOL
