Clark Transfer #611; 02-13-2012
« on: February 13, 2012, 06:29:11 PM »
Another new-hire came into today for the full treatment. This driver was leased on to John Christner Trucking and had nothing good to say about them!
I will say this, their graphics applicater didn't give much thought to where he placed the decals. They were applied to the drivers and passengers doors and the USDOT number ran into the red stripe and looked like crap! I spent about an hour and a half removing all of the old decals.

The driver was thrilled with the final results!

Nice match on the blue decal with the blue stripes--Are the drive wheel tires super singles or is it an allusion(me not the truck) --looks like a well maintained truck. --thnx for sharing

Those do appear to be super singles ;) Per the livery and specs, this tractor is a former ARD Trucking unit. ARD is a van carrier from Darlington, SC that has been in business for a long time. Their equipment is always very nice looking from what I have seen. I have a drawing of one of these in the art/drawing section if you would like to see their color scheme :)

Yes they are super singles. The driver told me that he paid $800 for a tire and that was WITH the OOIDA discount! Normally, they are $1400!

That's a sharp Columbia! Too bad he didn't like JCT, though.
