Indeed it does. And a fine truck it looks to be, too.

I'm getting the distinct impression that you are moving ahead fairly quickly on this project now. I'm beginning to think you might have it on the road before the the season turns to winter there.

Well, no. It is Autumn / Fall here now. Have had some cool days so far but some days still good enough to be out in the Roadster. We do need rain. It does not snow where I am but a little further south of me they often get snow on the ranges.

Thank you and yes I like the idea it is a one of a kind truck. As for the plans :D all of the above :D . I intend to enjoy all the work that has gone into it.

I have to get the DVD player fitted. as well as the auto fitted out with a manual kit, finish the paint work and the sign writing etc. Sort out the LPG (Propane). :beer:

Installed the DVD / Stereo system yesterday. Sorry no photos yet. System is hidden in the glove box with a 400 Watt Amp in the sleeper with four 350 Watt Speakers also located in the sleeper. The flat screen TV works well with the system.

Nice! That's a bit of driving, mate. More than just around the block, unless, of course, you happen to live on a very large block.

No, the model truck here was known as a Freighter. Phone number is the year of the cab and the weight converts to 3 Imperial British ton - 1 hundred weight - 3 quarters of a hundred weight and that is the tare of the truck - 2800kg.

By the way, for anybody who is as curious as I was about the expression "LPG compliance plate" and what it means to a fellow looking to run propane as an automotive fuel in Australia, I found the following pdf file that explains it in some detail.

The compliance plate is just to show the LPG has been fitted correctly and according to the regulations. :D

I am still working my way towards registration with an Engineer. All looks good at the present.
Truck made its DEBUT over the weekend here at the Castlemaine Rod Run - 75 Years of the 1933 / 34 Ford. I had the 1923 T Roadster at the Show & Shine then late in the morning took it home and came back in the F4.

Obviously the F4 drew a big crowd when it arrived, but I can still say the T Roadster still turns heads with the inline 6 - 170 Pursuit motor. The T was well photographed on the Saturday morning before I made the swap to the F4. :D it will be great when I can get the two to an event at the same time or for that matter all three vehicles, given they have similar paint schemes.

Conner is pretty good with that camera. And only 7 years old?

Incredible.

OK, noise test is done a super quiet (for a Diesel) 92db and the aircon has been gassed. I think the system could make ice it blows that cold. :D Roadworthy will be done next week.

I sense a short road trip coming up ... with pictures, yes?

:)

Hey, here's an idea. Get that kid Conner to come along (with one of his parents, of course) and get him a simple camera to take pictures of the truck from various angles wherever you stop. Maybe pick a kid-friendly destination like an ice cream stand with a big parking lot near some beach or in a scenic area. I bet he'd love it and his short stature will make the truck look huge (and thus extra special cool) in the resulting images.

The only road trip planned at present will be to front up for my registration. :D other than that I will be cleaning it getting ready to show it and see it featured in a few magazines. Hopefully, November I may take it to an event.

Roadworthy and brake test have been done today all I need now is the final engineers report to complete it and I can register the F4.
