How to drive my wife nuts

I photoshopped this on the door of my truck and I told my wife I'm planning on painting it on Ol' Red. She went nuts, told me that it looks stupid and it would ruin the truck, lol. I actually kind of like it but I don't think I could do it.

LOL....."It's the big one"

Thats pretty funny. It does look good but I don't think I'd do it

All I have to do to drive my ol' lady nuts is to start talking truck stuff......I can see her eyes glaze over within a minute or two...

I'd have to at least get a magnetic sign duplicating the graphic!

I really like the door art, but I just can't approve of "Sanford and sons" on your truck. She is way too pretty. I have to agree with your wife...you can do better!

Something like "Wally's Manure Spreading"...."We wear tall boots"

Hey, I did it. That's my last name and I have a son. Best $500 I ever spent on the truck.





I think your truck looks great with that signage on the doors.

Ilya , your panel is a work of art !!! It is beautiful .Maybe with the signage you can use it for a tax write off .

The stock truck under const. will have oak side boards from Grandpa & Dad's mill with A. Dahle & Sons Lumber & Land Clearing on one side in tribute to Grandpa & on the other side Dahle Lumber & Supply - Haugen Wis. in tribute to my Dad . Can't wait .

The panel and sedan deliveries look great with signage. There is another option if you happen to like it. I built wood bed stake boards with one long and one shorter in bed length. The wife agrees with the plan to get signs I can put on or remove from the bed stake boards. It is an old telephone truck and we plan to use some old Bell Co logos. The wife agreed since her Dad and Mom were both telephone co workers for about 40 years. Just a thought if you or your wife don't want signage on the cab. Love the red color on your truck.

I plan to do the same on my stakes... some year... when I get around to making them.

Thought I'd do something with one of the (no longer in existence) local citrus growers.

My driver is no ways as nice as yours but this is a stick on that was done by a local sign company that lettered the company trucks. It will come off.



This is my WIFE's side.

Walford not many wives gonna argue or disagree with something for them.. The driver side is mine. The number is my late Dad's birthday. The wife side is made up numbers. To answer a common question about different signage on the doors. Can one see both doors at the same time?

I think signage looks good on All F-1s, I still remember a Panel back in the 50s, that cruised the neighborhood. It was pale yellow, with a green and white striped canvas awning off the back. It had large pull out drawers under the awning full of doughnuts. Ill never forget it , The "Colonial Bakery" truck, painted signage similar to Ilyas. How's that for advertisement, I still remember it after all these years. Of course all the trucks, large and small, were very cool in those days. Ice trucks, garbage trucks, milk trucks. What a great time to grow up.

I started Mt. Pickett Woodworking in 1981. Since the mid 90's we have built most of our projects with salvaged or reclaimed materials. I call that side of the business 'Mt. Pickett Salvage' Large beams are sold for construction of custom homes and we also saw them into dimensional lumber for our woodworking projects, mainly kitchens, doors,and furniture. The GMC was sold last year when I finished my '59 F350, and that's not my yard, just a place where I buy old timbers to haul back to the island. Now I'm building up a '47 two ton mostly to use around the sawmill and short trips.....
