I used the salt technique bud,primed the parts in a rusty colour then i matte varnished them after it had dried,then i used an atomiser and lightly misted the parts with water then sprinkled salt on,let that dry off then i top coated over that,just a couple of light coats of paint,let that dry then just brush it off!  I left it for a day and i then went in with the sponge and added some more rust effects then gave it a light wash! Hope that helps man :)

 

thats awesome..how do you do that..I want to try it out

I'll give 'er the thumbs up!   I especially like your seat cover.  How did you make that? Where did you find the fabric with the stripes in the right scale?  Very cool.  I also like your black pickup bed floor.  Note that Chevrolet  painted those boards black at the factory. Everyone who has done them in shiny wood has over restored / customized their truck.

 

One suggestion I could make would be to include the heater hoses.   See them on the left side of the below photo:

Mine stand a little too tall though!  There is also a hose from the power brake booster from the intake manifold.

Thanks for the pic,as soon as i get some hose i will add them! The seat cover is just a piece of A4 paper,found an image on Google and printed it off,i think the measurements were 2 inches by 4 1/2 inches. Thanks bud
