So, after a few days of break, here is an update.

 

Fast mid-progress mock-up

I think I won't go the same way it "should be".

The interior will be simple but clean. All the mechanical parts and the frame will be clean and rust free.

For the chasis, i want a rough look, so it will be rusty.

 

As I worked in a compagny that produce signs, I have the chance to have the hand on a nice paint kit.

What I liked is it's waterbase paint, so easy to clean.

You have different color in the paint. I choosed the bronze.

Once painted, you have the choice for the aging process.

I'm gonna use a mix of them. As I wanted a rough look, I applied the paint with a brush insteed of an airbrush. The results is perfect.

Here is a pics of the bodyparts paint. (No aging yet)

Forgot to show the dent I made on the passanger door and on the bottom of the trunk

For the front grill, I made a custom one from a piece of aluminium brush plastic at work with a laser engraving system. Here is the design

Here is the final result of the grill, but please help me decide, don't know if I go with my custom grill or one of the 2 optional that was with the kit

I really like whats being done. You might want to go back and re-scribe the door seams (re-blacken with some acrylics) because it seems you've lost a good bit of detail in your rusting process.

Thanks,

Yes, you have a good point. Nom i'm trying to figure out a way to do this step. Think I'll try the drybrush technique... what do you think ?

This a very cool build and you have done some nice work. Seeing this makes me want to get back to my '32 Rat Rod I started 2 years ago. Again nice work, it looks great.
