« Part 10: Working on the details Part 11 of Trucks series no next part

Here’s the front bumper, I’ve had it done but never took a good picture of the front.

I tried and tried to work with the maple wheels but with just natural Danish oil their to light, with walnut Danish oil their blotchy, even tried some golden oak danish oil which came close but just ended up sanding the sides of the wheels flush and adding a cherry veneer to get them looking right.

I’m really not happy unless I’m using walnut and oak, they seem to just work so nicely together with just the right grain patterns.

Before.

After


With flash and with out.

Should get it to match up now.

That’s one mean looking front Bruce that suits a big rugged prime mover.
