Love the color scheme and the deluxe trim you added. Fantastic job! Well done!

Helms Bakery in Culver City, California . Deliver to your door, using a Chevy panel truck with a rear cabinet built with 5 foot drawers that pulled out with fresh baked goods. Breads ,Pies ,Donuts, cookies, cakes.
Same charm has the Good humor Truck.

Update Finish Wooden Cabinet And Drawers. A lot of stripping, staining and Varnishing. Rear Drawers work really well using the same setup 45 years ago. I`m now working on the inverter and the deep cycle batteries for hooking up the 110 volt coffee brewer and fridgerator-freezer. Work with different organizations help promote their Baked goods offering free samples and help promoting different Charity events.

That is a beautiful looking truck and it looks like a lot of quality work involved. Did California make you put a Prop 65 on your project truck now? lol
