ok guys, i had to put the oldsmobile on the side for a bit due to lack of material to finish it....so i thought id mess around with a 32 ford sedan that was basically just some left over parts i had layin around.

i was diggin around tryin to find a theme for this build, and i thought...."hey, im Irish" well im part irish, part scottish, part native american...what a mix! LOL so i decided to do this one in green, of course it will be a ratrod, the usual rusty crusty goodness.

heres where we stand now....just gathering parts

im gonna cut the roof out, and make wooden bows, and maybe try to add some of the interior wood as well.

i plan on painting a small clover on the lower left of the rear of the body,heres my reference.

I think just chopping the roof would be better in my opinion, but sounds cool either way. I look forward to watching this one. =)

thanks Cranky! glad ya like it... this one isnt gonna be super ratty, more dirt than anything. the paint will be sanded through in all the right places so it will look like it is worn out, but not super rusty...the gunk on the engine will be at a minimum as well......

so, not a full blown rusty crusty rat, just a little dirty, decent hot rod.....

more to come
