    I thought the same thing while uploading the pics and no I am not one of those guys. The wife used to handle all of this kinda stuff and I found that table cloth in the Christmas stuff the old one was spring and it was on till November. I don't even know where to buy a tablecloth I'm assuming Walmart but I do know if she was here I would not be assembling/building stuff at the kitchen table which I have to say is quite convenient to TV and snacks.

    Forgot to include the pics of the tag...I made this in Word and its damn near identical in font/size and color including the original date code. Little over the top but it makes it look new....

    I have never seen this level of anal-ity. But I must say it impresses the hell out of me.

    What did you use to print the label on? Plain old paper or some kind adhesive backed paper? I'd like to try this myself on a couple of labels.

    Sorry for late response just getting back to thread - Yes plain Ink-Jet quality paper - Guess you could use adhesive backed as well.

    Terry , Looks great. Are you going to apply the “ blackout “ treatment to the axle & suspension ?

    That was the plan but I did not expect it to come out like it did, the pictures really do it no justice, up close it really looks like bare metal and everything is painted as to it's correct color. Who knows maybe back in 69 just as they were getting ready to do the blackout compressor went down, break buzzer went off, union meeting, stranger things have happen right, it could of happen. I have seen axles with little to no paint...:rolleyes:
