    So, every year my work puts a few trucks in the local parades, and with it being my first year working there, I knew I was in for a LOT of work before the 4th.


    These are the trucks we will be showing in two parades this year (the flat bed will be going in a parade for carquest, the two semi and trailer combos will be going into our cities parade.)
    These are the pictures i just pulled off our website, unfortunately I did not take before pictures and have already got two of the trucks washed. I will post pictures of the finished trucks either late Sunday night, early Monday morning, or sometime on Monday.

    Truck 20

    Truck 19

    I have already washed both the semis however i still have to wax them, and polish as much aluminium as i possible can. Truck 20 (cab w/ sleep) will need all 6 rims to be deeply polished (normally a two day job)

    Work that still needs to be done is the waxing, tire shining, polishing on all the trucks, and i need to wash truck 19.

    wish me luck!


    Also, have a safe and fun forth of july, dont forget about the ones who have served for us.

    it just all got sprung on me at the last second, i know when its all said and done it will have been worth it, but i had to move around some family stuff which i was really looking forward to.



    i like your positive outlook though, never actually thought of it that way.

    They look pretty awesome. After you are done and you see the fruits of your labor, it won't seem like it was that bad.

    Have a happy 4th and enjoy the parades! :salute:

    Just fixed pics, but like Flounder said, the image host changes the URL so I don't know how long it will last. :dunno:
