I really like the Dark Danish oil!!!
It has some walnut stain in it and sinks into the grain and darkens it so it really shows up in the oak.
I got the bumpers on and all the little side panels and gas filler, all I really have left is the back stop lights and the windshield post.
O! and I still need to build the rack and radiator grill, I made one grill but it just wouldn’t bend enough over the hood so will need to make a few things and get the wheels oiled up.
May look into building some fences for the back of the pickup. [Can’t think what you call them???]

I used the clear Danish oil on the inside and while I was painting the out side I used the same for the upper part of the inside so it’s now two tone on the inside cool!!!


Got the bush guard and back bumpers on, just love the bush guard!!!

The extra wheel I darkened turned out great but the side wall had a white spot don’t know if it was a greasy fingerprint or what so sanded it out and put the oil finish on it just to see what the black tread and dark danish oil would look like.
Here’s the wheels before the danish oil, tomorrow I’ll know if they’re going to work but from what I see so far they’re looking great.

If all goes well should have it all finished tomorrow.

Rails that’s it, one of them there things but once I get the luggage rack it’s done thank you very much.
I thought about a tool box on the back , would be something I haven’t seen before but I’m hitting that spot that says it’s done and that’s all it get’s.

Gr8Hunter
I really built this project for the wheels, just wanted to build the mudder tires.
Now the trailer I have no interest in making all those wheels, but I will.
It’s the shape on the sides of the trailer that have got my interest, don’t ask me why. LOL
