I was just looking for information on Biederman trucks and found this post.

Saw this exact truck and took some pics of it at Macungie on Friday.

There are 3 of it in this gallery:

John has the Biederman loaded up and is headed up to Macungie PA today for the truck show this weekend.


This is the "tow" vehicle with Ian Watson, who is visiting from Melbourne Australia.


Anyone going to the Macungie show this weekend, stop by and check out the Biederman, a pretty rare truck..

To finish off the running board skirts, some epoxy primer was brushed into the hem fold, given a couple days to cure, and then seam sealer added to keep out the moisture..





….then another dose of epoxy over the seam sealer, and everything primed.




I didn't get pictures of spraying the blue, so the finals will have to do. John is tying up the loose ends, the running board skirts were installed the other night.....




The dump body has been painted and he should get that installed today or tomorrow.

And now for the fabrication details, John stopped by the shop last night so we could fit up the running board skirts on the Biederman.


I know he will be glad to close off this gaping hole.


After taking some measurements we got the top flange folded over using the magnetic brake. The flange will be bolted to the underside of the cab to support the weight as we will leave about a 1/4" or so gap above the running board to allow for frame flex.




Rivet Nuts installed under the cab...



The rubber edge trim is our attempt to keep the paint from rubbing off, and these are held in place using weatherstrip adhesive.


The dump bed had been painted over when John bought it, but closer inspection showed where some additional layers of paint in the hand painted lettering, "Phone 60" had staved off surface rust in it's previous life and was still visible...

Fabricated the running board filler panels tonight. One step closer and a finishing touch. The body comes off and goes to the paint shop this week. Sorry I can't make Reno with it but it should be in Macungie and hopefully done. Could it be? I'm ready.

Now that the running board panels are fabricated and spring is coming, it is time to think about getting some paint on that box. It won't be in Reno for obvious reasons but Macungie is a real possibility. This could be the year that sees this project complete.

Well the last piece of the puzzle that I need to help John with are the running board skirts that fill in the gaping hole under the cab......as you can see here:







Here's the design for attaching to/covering the top of the running board for a smooth outside finish..







We needed a profile that will sit above the running board's inner flange (upward vertical) with a folded flange that will attach to the underside of the cab. Our plans were to use a rubber edge trim between the running board flange and the skirt to help keep paint in place during road travel.. Here's the dies we came up with and a test sample of the design (sample it upside down from how it installs)



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cuY1efs0kQ







With a sample that matches our design, looks like this will work!




These two bends were done in the magnetic brake, the final fold for the U-shape is done in the Lennox using these dies..








Comparison




Here's the folding process...

Next we took them to a local machine shop, Triton Defense, to hem the U-shape. They used an acute knife blade in the press brake.




The only thing left for these is to fold the top flange for bolting to the underside of the cab, fit, and paint.
