Fenders off! The fenders had to come off! Considering the truck is about 58 years old it is amazing how sturdy the metal. They were made of real steel in those days. However, the deeper I looked into the old truck, under the hood, under the fenders, down to the frame; the more I began to notice a serious problem. Rust is the cancerous sin of the iron truck. No matter how they look on the street, they all have ‘it’ somewhere. Rust is working silently to destroy all trucks. It is just a matter of time. In order for the old truck to be rescued, redeemed, reclaimed, and restored some one must get down to the frame.
14 For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. 15 As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; 16 for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more. 17 But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him… Psalms 103:14-17 (ESV)
