Great details – I like how you used contrasting wood for the fenders & body. Did you stain the tires? In one pic they look light colored – but darker in the finished product.

Thanks for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
