I ended up buying two fan blades and motors from catering truck parts:

I am going to have a local fabricator build a hood around these fan installs. So far that is the plan. Meeting with him this coming week to see about laying out a plan. I feel like it will be less costly than installing a purchased premade hood. We'll see.

      Vic,
      Your logo is looking good. It will add a lot to your trucks eye appeal. What is the blue section I'm seeing?

        Thanks, Jack! That blue thing is a plastic menu/logo board backer. I'll be putting a logo on that and above that is the menu chalkboard, which also had some of that blue plastic, but I took that off and used chalkboard paint. Stay tuned... I'll be getting the paint and the logos done in the next few days (but it's snowing right now so nothing today).

          I was thinking about the chalk board thing and I think that is an awesome idea. It would be great for promotions, daily specials, and announcing when and at what events your going to do. Goood Idea.

                It looks great and looks close to hitting the street. At least from the outside.

                Oscar is a cutie!!

                      Not much to update. I finished the paint (but I haven't taken too many pictures yet). I've been trying to install the graphics but it's been ****ty weather. I still have the giant guinea pig and the giant logo to do. I did finally get the new LP tank mounted properly. I can't weld too good (at least for a critical propane tank mount) so I hired someone. Glad to have that done! The cold plate fridge seems to work well enough on cold days. Still not sure about the hot ones. Here's a teaser pic of the finished paint and graphics on one side....

                            I dig the look of the front. I've never seen a step van with that cool shape before.

                              Yeah, neither have I. I think it's all custom because it's all made out of fiberglass on the fenders. I think maybe it was in a front-end. But if so, I don't care because the frame is straight, the alignment is good. Or it could've been customized by whoever did the bodies for AA cater truck back in the day. I've never seen another AA or HIVCO body, or even any other P30 look like this one.

                                Very cool hood. Definitely one of a kind

                                        Update: I got my health inspection today!!! I've been dealing with the HD for quite some time because all the commissaries here are full. I went in there just asking about "the list" which is the issue I've had for about a month now. I turned in my permit application and they said "Can you bring your truck down here in the next few hours? We can do your inspection." I hauled ass back and got my Permit!!!

                                              Hey Vic - congrats. How's the food truck startup coming along? Do you have any information on where the exhaust hood on your truck came from?

                                                Thanks guys! I just got one of my business licenses today. I still need one more for salt lake city. And they're all crazy and don't really know what I need. They said I'd have to have my insurance a certain way but they're not sure what type of coverages yet. :-/ They'll let me know.

                                                      I'm starting my first day on Sunday. Good spot too! Next day will be at the Peruvian Consulate. Thanks CC!
                                                      Mo: Thanks, I hope so!
                                                      D: Seems to work great! I love it's simplicity. We'll get her in action soon enough to see how she really works.

                                                          And Como Lomo is on the road!
                                                          Girlfriend and I hit the grand opening at the beautiful foothills of SLC yesterday. Simple menu, good price points, visually appealing cuisine, and most importantly well balanced, yummy flavors! Sure to be a success
                                                          Nice work guys!
