« Part 75: Hummer Ebonized tires #11 Part 76 of Toy costruction series Part 77: Starting on a 1935 Ford #1 »

Ducky talked me into adding a few more things to the build so here they are then that’s it. lol
Added a luggage rack but had to shorten up the rack being it’s a pickup truck.
So here’s a luggage rack quick how to.

I printed out the plans for it then cut it up to fit the top of the truck then cut parts to fit that plan.
I hot glued the three braces to the plans so they wouldn’t move then I had something to go by to keep everything lined up.


I then banded it, I guess I really should have took more time with it but this will get er done.


Then sanding and buffing and onto the roof it went.
I clamped a board down to keep it lined up till the glue dried.

Next I built some over head lights.
I really need to find some store bought ones but just for a few lights I’m not paying $9 shipping.
So notice on some real Hummers they use the square lights so hey let’s give that a try.

I took a page out of Dutchy’s play book and made them.

Here’s the project post.

Bruce the bush guard was printed out then glued to some 3/8??? lumber then scroll sawed out sanded then routed with a 1/8 bit then sand sand sand.

I’ve got some old blogs that show the tires being made and Dutchy has some great How2 blogs on tires.

I thought about the lowboy trailer bit it’s so hot in the shop may build a quicky car.
1935 Ford.
It’s funny never thought I would get into building the cars but really are fun to build and love having them around when they’re done.

Obviously made by someone who didn’t see your train blogs… It’s obviously a backup side for your fruit car in case the longhorn decide to turn vegetarian and get a penchant for sweetmeats.

As I moved down the pictures, I thought you merely used the hummer as a delivery truck for the box sides to the railway yard.

Further down, when I saw that it was actually glued to the roof I suddenly realised it was a hailstone catcher to protect the delicate fabric of the seat cushions. Lucky there’s no comfort cushions in the back or they’d get hammered by the hail.

Now listen here Ducky I didn’t want to build the thing in the first place so why are you giving me grief over it.
This ain’t no bicycle rack this is for carrying real manly stuff like like manly stuff!!!! LOL

All I can say if you can’t say something nice why say anything!

If everybody’s wondering what you plan to carry on the roof rack, make another (matching) tire & rim and just set it up there. I see plenty of “off roaders” who just throw their spare tire up on the rack.

GREAT LOOKING GAS HOG

I was reading about the Hummer the last year they made them, they came up with this really great new motor helped it get much better gas milage, would you believe 10 miles to the gal.
Now that’s really sad, course we need to remember this thing is built like a tank so HEAVY DUTY is the word with the main word being heavy.

was curious on just how to make them vents …did you see them on the 36 ford …...... I probably would run thru table saw then glue top on then put half wooden dowels on it
