    John stopped by the shop last night so we could fit up the running board skirts on the Biederman.





    I know he will be glad to close off this gaping hole.





    After taking some measurements we got the top flange folded over using the magnetic brake. The flange will be bolted to the underside of the cab to support the weight as we will leave about a 1/4" or so gap above the running board to allow for frame flex.











    Rivet Nuts installed under the cab...








    The rubber edge trim is our attempt to keep the paint from rubbing off, and these are held in place using weatherstrip adhesive.





    The dump bed had been painted over when John bought it, but closer inspection showed where some additional layers of paint in the hand painted lettering, "Phone 60" had staved off surface rust in it's previous life and was still visible...

    To finish off the running board skirts, some epoxy primer was brushed into the hem fold, given a couple days to cure, and then seam sealer added to keep out the moisture..







    ….then another dose of epoxy over the seam sealer, and everything primed.







    I didn't get pictures of spraying the blue, so the finals will have to do. John is tying up the loose ends, the running board skirts were installed the other night.....







    The dump body has been painted and he should get that installed today or tomorrow.





    He will get it loaded up around Wednesday for the trip to Macungie PA for the truck show this coming weekend.

    No 1946 dump truck ever looked so good.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    John has the Biederman loaded up and is headed up to Macungie PA today for the truck show this weekend.



    This is the "tow" vehicle with Ian Watson, who is visiting from Melbourne Australia.



    Anyone going to the Macungie show this weekend, stop by and check out the Biederman, a pretty rare truck..
