My Fashion Truck Journey 6

Let us fast forward a little bit!!! Again, life got in the way from me blogging about our adventures!  So last I blogged I was preparing for a July 18, 2015 event.  I ended up with a 4th of July event!  The truck still needed to be painted and the inside wasn't quite ready for company.  By chance I saw a truck pass me by with a sign about car painting.  Of course I wrote the number down, (well actually I took a pic!). and called as soon as I got home.  The guy came out and gave me an estimate.  I wasn't quite sure exactly what I wanted.  He asked to do just do the rims and treat the...

My Fashion Truck Journey 5

Well it's been a full year since my last blog post.  I had to take a mini break due to life experiences.  Now I am back at it full force.  Our first time taking the truck out will be July 18 in Houston, Texas.  So needless say we have a lot to do.  The hardest decision I have had to make thus far is what type of artwork I would like on the truck.  After pricing and doing research on the wraps I decided they were not for me.  The cheapest quote I received for the wrap was $6000.00!  Holy Smokes Batman!  Seeing as I only paid $2000.00 for the truck, I didn't plan to spend triple to wrap it....

 I decided to do as much of the work myself to cut down on the cost.  I spray painted the inside doors with Rustoleom spray paint. Simple can from Wally world will run you about $3.50 a can.  I originally thought I wanted the doors to be pink, but I changed my mind and painted them silver to match the bumper.  So when the doors are swung open they match. My truck came with some orange cones on the front.  Sooo I painted them pink of course!

My Fashion Truck Journey blog 3

In my excitement of my recent purchase.  I began my two hour ride back to Dallas with my oldest following closely behind without cleaning off the for sale sign on the windshield.  A friendly Texas State Trooper pulled us over and advised that we clean the windshield at the very next gas station we came up to.  As soon as we could we exited and cleaned the window! The ride home was a bit loud.  I didn't take that into consideration.  Just imagine the truck is basically a big metal tin can.  So it makes a lot of noise.  It was also a little warm as the air condition didn't work.  I knew before I purchased about the air condition...

My Fashion Truck Journey blog 2

 As I stated in my first blog I got to Wichita Falls at 7:15am.  We met the owner at the Flying J, which is a truck stop.  We followed him to his house through about three winding streets, past goats, chickens, emus and horses.  At around the third winding road I began to think "Oh no, I think I am following a Craigslist killer!"  I started imagining that he would throw our bodies in this dirty body of water we had just crossed over! But then we came to his house and there my baby sat!  It looked like one of the trucks you see abandoned on the side of the road.  The grass had grown all around it.  ...
