      Nice work Mike!

      If you are interested, there is an upload in the 'files' section
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cw_bugs/files/ called
      "New_Lionel_J36_label.gif". You could print it to a size which
      matches the rivets on your Lionel bug, then laminate it and install it
      on the rivets (if someone knows a better method, please chime in).

      Again, nice job!

        I've been thinking about cleaning it up and making it look
        nicer, but there's never any time to do anything but drive the
        truck. Maybe one day...

        ... Thanks, guys! It really wasn t hard to clean. All the before photos were used to help me put the bug back together after completely disassembling it.

          Thanks, guys! It really wasn't hard to clean. All the "before" photos
          were used to help me put the bug back together after completely
          disassembling it. I soaked the metal parts in cleaning solution used by
          watchmakers and then gently got rid of what little dirt remained with a
          soft brush. After just as gently cleaning the base (not with the watch
          cleaner) I used black shoe polish on it.

          Now I'll print out the image you pointed me to, Jack, to give it a more
          authentic look.
