so here's a few progress pictures hope you like it so far

That's very nice weathering. Looks realistic & Old School to me. Good job! Headers are bit strange, but otherwise really good lookin' Deuce.

Looks very good to me ! Even the tires match the rest of the car . I'm glad you didn't go overboard on the weathering , sometimes that ruins the model .

In reference to the header comment, I suppose a set of traditional "lakes" style headers would look good on this build. I really like it so far......

i missed this one! nice weathering, and wiring. it looks nice and aged, but not too rotten! the headers look great too.......they look homemade, and really burnt, very nice touch. ratrods are a ton of fun to build, i always enjoy building them, and lookin at them!

keep up the great work
cheers

Nothing rat rod about that, from where I'm sitting. Looks straight out of the HAMB (and that's a great thing!). Great job. As others have said, the weathering is dead nuts on...really good mojo.
