Luis, I'm very impressed.

 

That flame work is awesome, and the rest of this is coming up beatifully.

 

You've also convinced me to pick a bottle or two of Vallejo up.

 

Keep it comin'!

Thanks,

I start working with the body and noticed that the paint was lifted in an area. I tried to fix it but it peel like a banana.I think the Super Clean went under the paint. So I put the the body in the strip bowl.

I will post the new paint job....... I'm doing some research on the Internet for some ideas.

Luis, it looks like you used the same flame mask I used on my 49 Merc a couple years ago. Here's a pic. I went the easy way with just white. Yours must have taken more work, and they look great!

Looks like you've put a whole lot of work into the interior and chassis that's looks like "fresh" Custom; sort of doesn't fit with the rat look. Iconic model years like the '32 Ford and Merc's (in my opinion) don't look plausible as a rat rod, most people who get one know their worth and heritage within the Rod & Custom community.

It's your model so do it the way you like best.
