    All right, so today I've done some work.
    First, I did some wood work for the roof.
    I had some wood from another project, so I decided to cut it in half, draw the pattern of the roof on a sheet of paper, and simply cut the wood on the line.
    after that, I wanted to make a rack for the surf board.
    Some more work has to be done on it.

    Second, I paint the engine. I will have to check online if I can find how I can wire the engine.

    Third,
    i had an old gas tank from a pick up. As it was too wide, I cut it shorter. I would like to install the gas tank under the back seat, near to the rear axle. I still do not know if I am gonna do it.

    And to finish, I extended the piece (I do not know the name in english, if french too actually lol) that goes front the front axle to the "frame",and a really quick mock up.

    thank you guys.

    Hi guys, thank you everyone for your support.
    You all give me the courage to continue what I like.
    When I was building earlier today, I had fun.
    I have to accept that perfection is not reachable, and that mistakes will happen.
    Anyway, i am back to business now, and thanks to you guys

    The key is to enjoy or try to reach the best you could?
    Hi guys,
    I left modeling about 6 month ago because of my frustation of trying things that never worked.
    after 6 month, I am back on the workbench but not in the same way...
    Now all I want is to have fun when I build even dough the resultats are not as good as I want.
    What about you?How do you react when you give your best and at the end it doesnt look good?

    Thank you but I used Chris chapman Technique.
    That why I am asking you if it looks good to you?

    Rusty paint looks wrong to me! What do you think?
    As I am building a ratrod, I have tried to practice a rusty paint on a old body.
    But at the end, It doesn't look good to me.

    Rusting a Rat Rod
    Hi guys,
    I know there is a lots of techniques and products out there and tutorials,etc...
    But at the end, which one would give the best finish for a rat rod?
    Salt technique,hairspray, wearhering, sophisticated finishes???
    I bought the paint Testors Rust,but it won't be enough to make it realistic I guess.
    I am kinda lost.

    Thank you
