      Hi there - I'm in Ontario and wondered where you had it restored?
    13. pickrknows pickrknows, 10 years ago
      Hi Stu2000, this was done by me, just cleaned,sanded,primed,painted,and even lettered! My first time doing the lettering, looks great from 5" back!! The lettering part of it could use an up-grade ,but thats how I roll,like to do things myself!
    14. tommy1002 tommy1002, 10 years ago
      Nice job pickr, I'm going to do mine too. Is there a certain red that you used. I have quite a few questions for ya actually, since you've done one, lol
    15. stu2000, 10 years ago
      Nice work!!!
    16. pickrknows pickrknows, 10 years ago
      Thanks tommy, I tried a few, but the Tremclad Fire Red was the best match!
    17. pickrknows pickrknows, 10 years ago
      Thanks stu2000, what part of Ont.?
    18. stu2000, 10 years ago
      Grew up in Waterloo but I'm living in Toronto. That guy's place in Lindsay looks unbelievable - thanks for sharing. Have you been?
    19. tommy1002 tommy1002, 10 years ago
      thank you sir, duly noted !!
    20. pickrknows pickrknows, 10 years ago
      Went there this summer & he was closed!! Should have called first! He was on Canadian Picker's, but those clowns wanted every-thing on the cheap, from a retailer/picker, they ended up with not much ! He has 4 trailers full of items, plus a huge work-shop packed!
    21. magcag01, 10 years ago
      Very nice job. Congrats on doing the lettering yourself. I'd like to try
      to do mine myself. I know its a specialty doing it, but what why not try.
      Especially when there are raised letters an all 4 sides. It would cost a bundle to have a pro do it. Gota get the right brush and paint and have at it.
    22. pickrknows pickrknows, 10 years ago
      Thanks for the nice comments magcag01. A freind gave me a tip to try on the next project. With having the raised letters,he suggested a fine paint roller avail. at hobby shops and roll the lettering on. Hav'nt tried it ,but makes sense. Good luck with yours!
