Thanks Guys, funny enough this was practice for Ford 1/2 ton that'll see a similar treatment (rust & plow)

If it didn't remind me that summer is half over and I'll be seeing these on the road again in a few months, I'd say I love it.








But, I DO!

Nice job there Nick, looks like a real vehicle. I remember seeing many of those back when I lived in the midwest, many of them sat all summer long and once October came around, they would be dragged out of the field and prepped for duty.

Your skills continue to improve and impress.....keep them coming!

Thanks guys, the idea came from a Jeep Cj-7 I used to see everytime I went up north it sat next to a gas station from Spring to Fall, and In Winter I'd see it clearing snow from the station, now both are gone, the Gas Station and the Jeep, all that remains is a fenced off yard and some old tires (and I do mean old, some had whitewalls over 3" thick)

Very cool ,Nick! Great job on the weathering. It looks like veteran of many winters on salt covered roads. The rusted hole in the muffler is a great touch!

Looks like you did some magic there, Nick, and I hope you'll keep the cold weather up there with you. Should the rear drive shaft be on such a severe angle?

Rodney thanks, locally we've been trying to get away from salt, they've been using sand instead, but it's too little too late.

Jim, probably not, it's from a '50 Chevy truck
