Finished Mapel bed for our 1929 AA

Post by fdohnke » February 1st, 2016, 6:20 pm

My dad finished the bed for our 1929 AA, designed to look like a stock AA but 12 feet long and all wood. Painted it close to the cab color, still need one more gate latch to be all done, but its good enough to drive around the groves. Pretty happy with the end product.

Pictures attached, video at the link below.

Which latch are you missing? I have some extra originals and reproduction
