Default Model tt Huckster

I started building this Huckster 2 months ago with some friends that are great woodworkers.

We aren't finished yet but today I took it for a 5-10 mile drive and so far so good other than some vibration at one speed,....must be out of round tires since the vibration goes away when you either speed past it or keep under that speed.

I still need to find some tt running boards and we are making the bed rails, as well as I still need to seal and canvas the roof before painting it.

Instead of canvas on the top buy the correct era looking long grain cobra top material sold by the vendors.

I thought of that but wasn't sure it would stretch to thw curve of the roof??

The canvas worked well,

I finished the truck today and drove it the 20 miles home with no issues other than my generator quit so i gotta pick up one of those.

I must have the faster gears cause my buddy that followed me said I was doing 25 up the mountain and almost 35 on the flats.
