Here some pictures of the track nose that I use. I modified the track nose from a '29 Ford Rat Rod. The Woodlite lamps are from a guy in the US.

It had taken a while to continue with my Straight 8 Rod. I had used salt and hairspray for the rusty look. I'm not happy with the result. I had forgotten to protect the base coat with clear coat before I had applied  hair spray. So the next step will be clear coat and salt again.

The radiator is scratch build from  plastic sheet. The fan is from Model Car Garage, while the mesh is from Kit Form Services.
