here is the end result of my pirate rod. it is not as low as what i wanted it to be in the first place but i ran into trouble with parts breaking on me, and the frame is a little uneven because when i had the wheels on there one of them broke off so i had to do some jerry riggin to fix. this is the first model that i ever modified in anyway, not to shabby for the first one if you ask me ive looked at my older model that i have done and you can tell that im improving a little but all in good time hope you like..

I'm certainly not a rusty, crusty builder, but the weathering you did looks superb.

Oh man this is sweet! Every lil detail is on the money with this build. Down to the worn whitewalls that is a beautiful build.

Man, that thing is certainly crusty! It looks really good, the weathering is great... but I have to wonder about those "formal" ignition wires that are perfectly straight and have that sharp bend in them... :blink:
