  1. Really like how this turned out, seemed very organized. You started with a very straight looking car and improved the look a 1000 percent.

    Enjoyed how the interior transitioned from its initial cardboard templates into metal.

  2. Beautiful work….But why do so many of these Rat Rods Always have exhaust leaks.!…I’m not talking about because it has headers it’s loud,,I mean it sounds like it’s leaking between the head and header.
    One thing I wish I’d done when I was younger was taken metal work and fab.!..Your detail is unbelievable,,the seats and the trim that looks like rivets is the best I’ve seen.!!

  3. I have zero interest in a car like this but I worship the craftsmanship in the project. You could not fill a school bus with people from the entire planet talented enough to build this.
