Awesome hot rod.  The SHINY ??? is wonderful and the dio is very cool.

Thanks.

The Body paint is Candy-Violet and the flames are painted. Tires are 3D print and the Whitewall are painted.

I have this car chopped and channelled.

That's only Candy-Violet over silver and Gold groundcoat.

It's amazing the difference that a different colored base coat makes to candies and metallics. I've got a bunch of pretty spoons lying around from past and present paint jobs for comparison sake.

Yea, I guess I'm gonna be "that guy". ?

It's a great build but it isn't a highboy. 

A highboy is a rod that the body sits completely on top of the frame, not channeled. 

That is correct. I thought if it was built without fenders, it was a high boy. But it's not always a Rat Rod.

Then what do you call this version? Just Hot Rod?

Yes, you were correct with "channeled".  ,,just a "channeled hot rod" .

I'm sure a couple of the other guys on here could get more specific.

 

, , , and that takes nothing away from the great job you did building it.
