way cool Blair, looks like you got the rust thing down!, very nice weathering and detail

Gonna go out on a limb and say the Halibrands. They go with the Flathead's aluminum heads. If you are looking for a little more weathered appearance you could flatten them up a bit then do some light grey to light black washes. Then super thinned white spattered over the dark (spattered off a toothbrush's bristles) to look like corrosion. There is a seller on ebay that is selling a similar wheel as you have on the front in resin, PM me if you want the seller's info.
BTW, I'm not super crazy about the rustified look, but I like this one. You've got the rust down pat, it's convincing without being over done. If you can get the rust that good you should have no problem with a little corrision on magnesium.

I'll chime in that I like the body too. I've been working on '34s with sectioned bodies but full tops. I think the big glass look is cool, almost reminiscent of the Tall Ts. 1930s Ford rods have been done to death, so it's interesting when we can do something different!
