    I was home at my folks place again this weekend and my mom had been into the old picture boxes. I just happend to grab a stack of photos and found these ones! Man I can't tell you how many hours my dad and I would be in the living room pulling. Out of all the trucks I had my Stomper Bully was the best! Man I'd love to get my hands on another one of those trucks. If you notice this is the second version of the Bully. I believe the original was released in like 1986 and then this version was released in 1988. There was also a yellow one with the same decals as this too. Anyone on here have one of the originals they would like to sell, let me know. Thanks

    Hey Jason, I haven't seen any others in white with those graphics other then the one I had. I remember when I got that truck we were up in Muskegon Mi. We had gone into a Target and there was one of the older Stomper Bullys but the decals were gone and the box was really ripped. So we went over to Meijer and they had a whole wall of the newer style ones, there were only a few white ones and I wanted it cause it looked more like the actual Stomper Bully. I remember you saying you had the original but do you have one of the yellow ones too? Just thought I would add these for anyone who cares.

    Cause it does. I had a set from another truck on it. From the pics it looks like they were just sitting on there but after that I adapted a different set of wheels and bigger tires to it.

    Well I finally found myself a Stomper Bully! It is a second generation truck with the different decals. The decals are in ok shape but it doesn't matter cause I always like the first generation Bully trucks the best. So over the last few months while I searched for a truck I recreated the original decal sheet for the first gen. trucks. Here is a picture of the truck before I take it apart and clean up and re-decal it. I have also tracked down a guy who had a spare driver for the Bully so once I get it in the mail it will be complete. I am also working on reproducing the box for it as well.

    Hey Mike, I've got plans to someday make all the classic 1:64 trucks that were never made back then. What are you using to make the decals?

    Hey Dave, what ever trucks you are thinking of doing let me know cause I have drawn up a lot of the old skool graphics and logo in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. The Bully decals I re-drew mostly from pictures I have of the truck. Then I found a guy who has a mint one and he sent me some nice straight on side shots and I was able to figure out the sizes of everything. Then I am going to take it to a sign printer and have them printed out on thin vinyl. But if you can find someone with an Alps printer they are the best to make water slides on cause those are the only printers that will print white ink!

    Oh I've got a list of about 150 that I figured I'd just hold onto until I'm retired and have the time (read: patience) to do something like that. Not for a long, long time though.

    Well here is a test run on the decals. I just printed them off on paper, cut them out to test fit everything and make sure everything looked right. Seems to be A OK so I will send them to the printer this week and get them done. The colors will be brighter when they are printed on vinyl. The printer I have it crappy so the colors look really dull.

    Paul, that would be a Schaper Stomper Crimson Crusher. It was what came before the Stomper Bully. They are the same other then the wheels and tires and the Bully has a long box body where the Crusher has a short box one. There was a mint in the box Crusher on Evilbay awhile ago. Schaper also made a black Ford that was called Desperado. I have one of those too but it is in sad shape at the moment.

    You can also purchase decal sheets in either clear or white. Some people print these on ink jet printers, but I find that to be a hassle as you then have to clear coat the decals before getting them wet (or the ink washes off the decals!) I've had good luck making my art files and printing them on normal printer paper first, then color copy it (laser printer) inserting the decal sheet in with the settings on "extra heavy card stock" (if you don't then the copier may jam) Doing this gives me decent decals and they are water proof. It works for either white or clear paper.

    If I need something metallic (gold, silver, etc) I can print the decals backwards, then color copy them onto clear decals. then I can use paint to fill in the metallic areas and then apply the decals on backwards (reversing the reversed decals) which look fine when done. If the attachments go through, they are both examples of some Muscle Machines I customized a few years back. The gold is paint underneath the decals.
