Default Finishing up.... 54 GMC cabover

I've been fairly absent from the forums for a while, been working on this cabover/mobile art display, and am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I think it came fairly close to the rendering.

If anyone wants to see more of it, I have more pics of the build.....







I would like to thank Peter Tommasini for his advice while this was still in its planning stages, and Kent White for letting me bug him and his staff for the rivets. (Rivets will be in the next round of pics).

I'd love more info on the wings. Perhaps some better pictures and how you made them?

Wow, what a great looking GMC. The one I drove on the farm as a kid was not quite in the same condition...
