I have seen a video somewhere on Youtube that gave me inspiration for building this. I was going to use a scrapped 1/24, but decided to go bigger and doubting on 1/16, I chose 1/12 in the end. I had a partial built '57 sportscoupe laying around and other than just parting it out, I had nowhere to go with that kit. An ideal start. The idea is to make a kind of Rat Rod, but different. Where I personally think that unibody's don't lend themselves for RatRodding, I am trying to prove myself wrong, although I will not leave the body intact. I hope the pictures will make it more clear. I started with cutting of the sides of the frame Then I cut the body in somewhat uneven parts (to give it a Barn Rod look) I also gave it somewhat a tapered look, so smaller in the front. And some much needed reinforcements
