That looks terrific Ken. If you have another one, you could weather it. I dare say the Chicago has to clean their plows often!. CAW

Ken that looks great, nice job. Would it be possible for you to do a close up of the door to get a better look at that decal? Only eight months before it will be needed so you will have plenty of time to build a nice stainless steel sander for it.

Thanks Steve. No sand or salt on the runways. I do have one to finish with a salt spreader for around the terminals. Here is a picture I took of the Chicago Logo off a truck door. Years ago they were hard to come by as they were being black marketed for "free parking permits" in the city's loop area. Ya know, the Chicago way!

Ken thanks for the close up, that’s a nice logo. I guess the Chicago way is very much like the all of Rhode Island way. What kind of trucks do they use around the terminals, are they the Oshkosh dumps but with smaller length plows.
