1968 FORD F850 MOLSON BREWERY
« on: March 06, 2019, 11:03:38 PM »
Here is the start of another classic

I have a few of these on hand, the chassis is "tandemed", if I had gotten the wrecker or the concrete mixer I would have had the tandem chassis but never got one, now they are crazy money so using a boom truck chassis, shorten WB and add axle from fire truck

it has a step tank on the LH side so I removed one running board and semi fabricated this tank from Boley

photobucket allows me to load 2 pictures and won't pen the other 2, same day, same time, I don't get it >:(
here is the un-decorated version of the same truck, this will be the cab I use, 4 colours need to be applied so I want to start with a "clean slate". The truck also sports a saddle tank so I semi scratch built this one

Thanks Chuck, and we do continue!

There are four colours I found in the fleet book for Molson's years ago, Peking Red, Odell Blue, Gold Irid and White, I mixed them up quite some time ago and finally get to use it! Usually when doing multiple paint schemes, I opt to start with the least colour first, mask it, 2nd least, mask,3rd, mask and 4th, de-tape and clear. As this is a bit of a challenging paint job (in this scale) it was decided to go this route, 2 colours, clear and then do the 2 tone stripe as it is difficult to get those stripes masked without harming what's done, this way, clear and seal and then go on! Red base applied

trailer roof masked and red applied

masked off for 2nd colour

trailer masked and ready for 2nd colour

de-masked and ready to clear

mocked up on chassis real quick for a full cure, over night before handling too much!


Now to add the stripe!

Interesting, didn't know Molson used a carrier, almost like an "lease" type carrier then to have the fleet in their own name?

Part 2 of the paint job, the cab lightly sanded out, masked, gold applied

the gold masked off, white base sprayed on

de-taped, overall clear coat applied


it does need a little tweaking yet, hopefully I can just brush touch a little blue and red where needed.......certainly is easier to do a 1:1 paint job like that!

Man; that's looking good.
You'd have to ask Doug McKenzie about the details for Hyatt Transport and how it related to Molsons.
But I remember them running those Ford Super Duties out of the Fleet Street brewery.

You know after you mentioned it I looked at the photo I am working from and it does say Hyatt in small font on the running board, the proof is in the pudding!

After looking at the paint job and wondering how I could improve the blemishes, I wondered if I would be further ahead to start again!! So, I had to buy another F850 just for the wheels -as you can't get them from any source ::), I had found another undercoated kit so I had a clean cab to start with! This time, I will go with the way I was thinking in the first place, start with white, and it is applied!

then, mask white,

paint red

mask both, paint blue

then de-tape and apply clear. I thought I best not try to paint the gold till I seal it up with clear

a much better start, still have to tweak the white but that should be easier.......I hope? A mock set up with new cab
