Well I am not done, but close enough that I could roll it out of the garage for my father's day gift to myself and take some pictures. I still have to get the stencils to paint on, the tarp, put on the wheel hubs and finish up the wiring.

Here are the photos. :2thumup: :biggrin1: :band:

Nice job.

For future reference, I sell PPG paint and have all of the military colors matched in our industrial paint.

Federal Standard 24087 is a correct army color for the Korean War to the Viet-Nam War era. Fed Std 24052 is for Marines vehicles.

Keep the trailer out of the sun as much as possible, the two brands that "cater" to our hobby have a bad habit of fading quickly in UV rays. I'm not attempting to "run down" the competition, just passing along a fact that may save you a future re-paint. But then, the technology (solvent borne alkyd enamels) are a sixty year old technology and can't be expected to do much better.
