While I was waiting for the resin to set for the tractor build I had this flash for another shop truck.Posted Image

since I wanted this one to be really low with the kit suspension, I chopped it up pretty bad. removed the louvers and sanded the door panels and seat.

Posted Image

I went with the wheels and tires from a 29 rat rod kit and painted them satin purple.

Posted Image

the flahead was wired, added aluminum water pumps and an alternator.

Posted Image

paint on the truck is finger nail polish, Malibu Girl African Violet.

Posted Image

seat cover from the 29 rat rod, eyeball shifted and the 40 decal for the bed.

Posted Image

ready for assembly.

Posted Image

chain for the tailgate and wrought iron running boards.

Hey Richard,

  It depends on the brand and type of nail polish, some I use toulene and some is alcohol, you have to read the ingredients on the bottle. I've had the same brand have different formulas, so you have to look closely.
