« Part 16: Finished up the wheels and started on fenders Part 17 of Trucks series Part 18: Got a little more done on the bus »

I got a slow start and then it was stop and go.

Then finally started to make some progress.

I had one thing that had me trying to figure out a way.
How am I going to cut a wedge out of my front fender so the engine hood could fit up just right?

On big lumber it would be interesting but on this small stuff, need to find a safe way,
so super glued the part at the angle needed to a small scrape of plywood and cut it out in a couple a passes.

Under side look.

#4 over and out

I’ve been working off and on with this build so there’s been a lot a time between for moisture to give me problems with these wide sides.
Been a lot a rain. [Hurricanes down on the coast]
They’re wanting to cup and this is going to give me headaches down the road,
but it’s to late now we’ll just have to work with it. ;-[[[

I should add that I’m building this shrunk down to a 3/4 size to save on space and wood.
You can see by the Dr. Pepper can in some of the pictures, it’s still going to be one large bus. lol
