    Thanks!
    The deal with this was my friend bid the job as flat units with some gimmicky fractal burning etc.
    The 3d machining I introduced to the project added time and some steps to the process that we agreed to not charge for THIS TIME.
    The customer is aware that if he requests more the price will be more.
    I'm not sure I'm willing to drive the 80 miles a day to do it again.
    I AM however considering a MAJOR CNC upgrade. If that happens, GAME ON!​

    I am "semi-retired". I still make all kinds of signs and take limited custom furniture orders.
    The customer never told us what his retail price would be.
    Based on the very few I've seen around, I'd guess $150-$180 at this size, but just a guess.

    It's hard for me to believe I've not worked on the C-10 since September.

    The last month has been eaten up by this project a friend recruited into.
    I designed the prototype and cut it on my homemade cnc router.
    Once approved we went into production in my friend's shop (it was his job AND he has a much better cnc router).
    160 flags later ............. I'm glad not to be commuting 80miles a day.

    The customer says expect another order in January for 250 more. I'm not sure I'm up for another round.

    Thanks for the feedback. I've never heard that before.

    Most of my past overheating issues have been in traffic, but surely TWO fans will get it done!

    I ordered a custom driveshaft through Speedway and it showed up at my house in 5 days. I'm impressed.

    I do have concerns with the electric fan shroud on this cheap radiator. It's unlike any I've used.

    Unless someone here knows a reason for the louvers, I'm going to close them off and fill the gaps around it.

    Well, I spent a couple evenings trying to deal with burnt wires and corroded connections.
    I lost my patients and ordered a Terminator. Sorry :LangleyDad, but mine made it here already.
    I finally have everything together enough to weight down the back and order the drive shaft..... so now, back to paint prep for the rest of it.
    Oh, yeah, I changed the cam and springs too. I couldn't resist the name.

    Thanks Dan. It looks ok except for the run on the back of the cab. I got greedy trying to flow out a dry spot (also not enough light).

    I'm just glad to finally have the window openings, jams, and firewall painted. Hopefully it will make it back to the frame very soon.

    Thers are a few mechanical things to button up first.

    So, I ran out of time waiting on Dan to agree to paint this pig.
    Knowing when to say when, that's the hard part for me.
    This isn't a show car....it's GOOD ENOUGH ALREADY---Paint it!
    Single stage urethane, Ceramic Gray

    still have a door and the bedsides to get prepped. CHOMP CHOMP

    I put the "wood shop" to work in a new way the last few days.

    The Previous owner here is a cabinet maker, this was his dedicated finish room.

    It's no paint booth, but it beats the open shop.
