BARGAIN HUNTER:$3 at Lowes for a junked piece of whatever this is. (Originally $20.) It will serve as the roof of the truck.
Today marked the beginning of construction for the Ice Cream Truck. Its awful cold in a February garage, but armed with some yellow gloves, a variety of power tools, and an almost willing little sister, things went pretty fast. So far it measures roughly 8 by 10 feet on one side and I am almost done building the front of the cab and the rear which will each be 4 feet wide. I also have a FREE PIECE OF PLYWOOD lined up to serve as the driver's side of the truck.
I plan on slapping a coat of primer on tonight to the background stylings of a Star Wars DVD. I feel much better now that this is underway.
I just need a method of assembling and disassembling it easily... Then I will feel better.
