Then it was time to turn their attention to the body and paint work. The body was modified to install in three sections-the now one-piece front dog house, featuring headlights lifted from a '95 Ram, attaches with only six bolts, while the cab and the much-modified box each use four bolts. Brian Palmer, a DuPont supplier, helped a lot on the paint, which was shot in Scott's neighbor's tractor-trailer-accommodating paint booth. Do we need to repeat that farm-size thing again?
The interior was trimmed out with a pair of tweed-covered racing seats, a stock car steering wheel, and Auto Meter gauges. We like what Scott listed on the tech sheet under the sound system description: "Blower." Since completion, the truck's taken top honors at three major shows, including the All-Truck Nationals at Carlisle and the Mopar Nationals, as well as a DuPont Top Gun award. Says Scott, "I was very honored to be around so many nice Mopar people. I'm excited that we made the truck all here, at the farm shop, and painted it at the neighbor's booth. We took the truck to three states to show, won in each state, and the award from DuPont. I couldn't top that for three years of work, between hay and corn crops. We won't show it anymore-we're just gonna cruise!"
Yep, they know how to do things right down on the farm, too.
