The clear acrylic hood is the most novel element on the truck, but was the biggest challenge of the build. "Taking it from my vision to the actual fit-and-finished product was daunting," Tim says. "I had to make a ‘mating skin’ or pattern, and work with hand-in-hand with the mold maker, Jeff Rogers at Airplane Plastics. Then it was tweaked for form, fit, and finish. Altogether it was 72 days of stress, not knowing if it would result in what I had visualized."
