Today I spent the bulk of the afternoon welding on the dump truck. I used 1/4" pencil rod to frame it out in readiness for the expanded lath to follow. Over this we'll apply sculpting epoxy in two coats to form the cab and fenders of the truck. Even with only the framework in place it is starting to look a lot like it will when it is done (if you squint your eyes and use your imagination just a little).
Once the cab is done I will move onto the box of the truck and then the hydraulics to make it all work. This is way more fun than actually working!
