    Smile Truck is done

    Finished truck over weekend and got it lettered monday. Here is a couple pics of brackets I made

    1st 2 pics are buckets holders and following 3 are a string trimmer mount I made. My wife and Oldest son used the truck today for the first time and said they have had alot of people look at it.

    Made a ladder bracket but installed it after I took the pics and made dividers in the bins from some old 6061.

    The string trimmer holder is spring loaded on one end, just pull up on the handle and the top hook will move up, let go and a spring on the back side pulls it down, works pretty good so far

    Smile couple more

    My youngest son made a spring loaded dust pan holder. They use the ones with the long handles for outside use and it will hold 4 of them. The bottoms fit between the bucket brackets and the tops are held by the bracket he made. It was his idea and he made everything, the hinges and the spring mount and all [pics kinda hard to see]and the last pic is the new truck next to the old one

    Looks nice. But you know you don't need all that aluminum tread plate to make a Ford look good, right?
