How hard is it to get the tires on the one piece rims?

The rims are of the collapse-able type. Very similar to the Firestone ones that you sometime find one these trucks. Total time to install the liners, tubes and tires for all four was less than an hour. Only issue I had is that the best tubes I could find didn't have long enough stems for this application. I had to add some extensions.

Found a neat NOS rear view mirror dated 1929 on ebay. Nice touch! Also got the restored windshield wiper in place!

Thought you might enjoy these pictures. They are from 1928/29 I ran across in my parts searches. I did reproduce these on mine.

Re: 1930 6 Speed Special

Do you have any after photos? My truck had the "Do Not Drill Holes in Frame" stenciling that was even more pronounced than you photos, and I took a photo of it, but didn't know there was the "international" on the outside of the frame? How did you replicate that one? Did you take measurements of it?
